Cleveland Browns to release Josh Gordon Monday

Josh Gordon Released by Cleveland Browns

The Browns flew to New Orleans on Saturday afternoon without Josh Gordon, then announced Saturday evening that they plan to release him.

Per Mark Kay Cabot, we now have our answer. Gordon reportedly had told the team his hamstring was bothering him.

The Browns have stuck with the former All-Pro receiver through multiple suspensions and a long battle with substance abuse issues, so why cut bait now? After that, he didn't return to the gridiron until 2017.

Gordon had a touchdown catch in the Browns' Week 1 tie with Pittsburgh.

Gordon was ruled out for the Saints game on Saturday due to a hamstring injury despite no mention of the issue on the injury report during the week.

If Gordon's issues don't stem from substance abuse then there undoubtedly will be a number of teams looking to acquire a wideout with his huge talent. Now, though, he'll be looking for a new home.

"For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally, and wanted the best for him", Dorsey said in the statement, "but unfortunately we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".

A trade could happen before Gordon is released.

Gordon missed the majority of training camp, taking time to make a concerted effort to improve his mental and physical health.

Now it's any guess what the next step might be for him and whether another team is willing to bring him on board.

Browns head coach Hue Jackson had said in mid August that he never lost trust in Gordon.
