Browns Cut Josh Gordon Over Concerns of Substance Abuse

  • Josh Gordon's very strange 6 years with the Cleveland Browns have gone up in smoke... the team just decided to release him

So while an 0-16 no longer wants Gordon after putting up with his troubles for six years, there's a handful of other teams that will happily accept his talent.

The former Baylor wide receiver's troubled tenure with the Cleveland Browns ended when the team announced Saturday night that it intends to release the former Pro Bowl wide receiver on Monday. Although he was still recovering from a hamstring injury suffered shortly after he reported for camp, Gordon surprisingly took 69 snaps (78% of Cleveland's offensive plays) last Sunday in the 21-21 tie against Pittsburgh. "Unfortunately, we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".

"This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday", Dorsey said. "We wish Josh well". It was reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter that Gordon suffered the injury during a promotional shoot, as opposed to practice.

He had been ruled out for their Week 2 matchup against the New Orleans Saints due to a hamstring injury.


Gordon had just rejoined the team on August 18. The Browns wideout was then suspended for the entire 2015 season for again violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Gordon had 18 receptions for 335 yards and one touchdown last season, in five games. The move came after Gordon did not report to the Browns' facility on time earlier in the day, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites an unidentified league source.

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