Browns to release WR Josh Gordon

Browns announce they are releasing Josh Gordon on Monday

As many as five teams are researching possibly trading for him, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per sources informed.

Gordon has been suspended for a total of 56 games in his seven NFL seasons, 55 of which were league bans for positive drug and alcohol tests.

Josh Gordon's surprising release from the Cleveland Browns is getting a little more clarity.

"This afternoon, we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday", Browns GM John Dorsey said in a statement announcing the move. Gordon stepped away from the team this preseason to undergo counseling and treatment as part of his recovery.

We wish the best for Josh Gordon moving forward after this sudden news.


The stunning news came Saturday night, just hours after the team announced that Gordon would miss Sunday's game in New Orleans with a hamstring injury. A report emerged from NFL.com shortly after the Browns' announcement that how he injured the hamstring after being healthy at practice on Friday played a part in the decision to release the receiver.

It's interesting - Gordon missed the start of Browns camp as he continued to receive treatment for issues that kept him out of the National Football League entirely in 2015 and 2016, but he returned before preseason ended and was expected to be one of their top receivers. He reunited with the club August 18.

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

A second-round pick in the 2012 supplemental draft, Gordon, 27, caught 180 passes for 3,106 yards and 16 touchdowns in 41 games with the Browns.
