Browns players didn't know Josh Gordon wasn't allowed to drink
Gordon's return to the NFL was under the condition that he stay away from alcohol.
Gordon, Haden and several teammates flew to Las Vegas on a private plane following the regular season. Gordon had several drinks on the flight and was tested by the NFL when the plane landed and was subsequently suspended for the 2015 season
"If I knew he couldn't have a drink, everybody would have tried to ... you know what I'm saying ... it wouldn't have been that," Haden said following Tuesday's OTA, per ESPN. "Josh Gordon, he's a grown man and sometimes you got to know what decisions you make."
Gordon has said he thought the alcohol ban expired at the end of the season. Haden went on to say that he thought the ban was unfair.

"I knew nothing about it. It was a complete surprise," Solder said. "You Google something like that and it kind of scares you, so I was like, 'I'm not going to freak out about this.' Had I not had a routine physical, I probably wouldn't have checked it, saying, 'Oh, it's just in my head, I'm going to be fine.'
