CLEVELAND (AP) - Revealing he was scared for his life amid another drug relapse, suspended Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon is making his case to be reinstated by the NFL.

Gordon detailed years of substance use, the depths of his addiction and his determination to turn his life around during a 13-minute video released Tuesday on the website Uninterrupted.

The former All-Pro who led the league in yards receiving in 2013 was indefinitely suspended by Commissioner Roger Goodell two years ago following another violation of the league's substance-abuse policy.

He's had numerous stints in rehab, -most of which he said he didn't take seriously. The 26-year-old Gordon can re-apply to the league this fall.

An NFL spokesman said the league had no comment on Gordon's status.
