Browns to release troubled receiver Josh Gordon


Josh Gordon's tenure with the Cleveland Browns is coming to an end as general manager John Dorsey announced in a statement that the club will release the receiver on Monday.

UPDATE: The Browns apparently were set to release Gordon but have been getting calls from teams and may trade him instead.

"Unfortunately, we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".

Reports also claim Gordon was healthy all week, then showed up late on Saturday and had a hamstring injury all of a sudden. The news of his release was announced Saturday evening, prior to Sunday's matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor targeted Gordon just three times, though, and Gordon finished with one catch for a 17-yard touchdown, which allowed the Browns to tie the score with 1:58 left in regulation and force overtime. Gordon wasn't supposed to start, but he was on the field with the first-team offense due to apparent miscommunication between offensive coordinator Todd Haley and head coach Hue Jackson. The jointure has seen more downs (Gordon being suspended for the 2015-2016 seasons) than ups (that magical 2013 that saw Gordon catch 87 passes and 1,646 yards.), but hope sprang eternal for Cleveland fans all around.

Gordon missed more than three weeks of training camp this summer while receiving treatment tied to his struggle with addiction.

Browns lose by 3. The Browns faithful were understandably not thrilled with Gonzalez after the game.

Gordon was finally reinstated by the league on November 2017.
