Josh Gordon is facing some serious charges in his personal life which have direct bearing on his NFL career. It seems the Browns receiver and Charlotte Hornets guard PJ Hairston have a few things in common.
As Hairston’s career is set to blossom in the NBA, Gordon’s NFL career could be coming to a crashing end, with both men now having been directly linked to a convicted felon named Haydn “Fats” Thomas at the height of their troubles.
According to Pro Football Talk, Gordon’s $5,000 bond was paid by Thomas, who has a long criminal history in the Tobacco Road area.
When Hairston was arrested for possession of marijuana, he was driving a car which was rented by Thomas. The rest is history for Hairston who was ruled ineligible to finish his career at UNC and jettisoned off to the D-League.
Thomas is a self described “party promoter” as well.Powered by Sidelines
