Browns More Likely To Trade Josh Gordon Than Release Him

Browns More Likely To Trade Josh Gordon Than Release Him

The Cleveland Browns are set to release wide receiver Josh Gordon on Monday, the team announced Saturday.

Per Mark Kay Cabot, we now have our answer.

Gordon re-joined Cleveland in late August after he stepped away from the team to deal with personal issues before the start of training camp.

Multiple violations of the NFL's policy on substances of abuse sidelined Gordon for most of his pro career since the Browns drafted him in the second round in 2012. After that, he didn't return to the gridiron until 2017.

Gordon had 18 receptions for 335 yards and one touchdown last season, in five games.

The sources reported that Gordon was told to not to make the trip to New Orleans for Sunday's game against the Saints.

From a credibility point of view, the British government must stick to that position, McCauley asserted. At one point their interviewer turned on an air conditioning unit because she noted they were sweating.

With his history of substance abuse, Cleveland simply couldn't afford to take any more chances with him. It was reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gordon suffered the injury during a promotional shoot, as opposed to practice. Now, though, he'll be looking for a new home.

"This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday", Dorsey said.

Browns head coach Hue Jackson had said in mid August that he never lost trust in Gordon. "Unfortunately, we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".

Earlier Saturday, Gordon complained of a hamstring issue upon reporting to the Browns' facility, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Even with Gordon's multiple suspensions and missed time rendering him a third-year veteran, he has accrued enough National Football League service to be a free agent then.
