Cleveland Browns to cut ties with wide receiver Josh Gordon

Cleveland Browns to cut ties with wide receiver Josh Gordon

The Cleveland Browns stunned the National Football League world less than 24 hours prior to their Week 2 matchup with the New Orleans Saints.

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

In a shocker announcement released Saturday night, the Cleveland Browns said they are parting ways with serially troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon. "For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".

Details are slowly starting to emerge surrounding the Cleveland Browns' shocking decision to move on from Josh Gordon.

Things did get bumpy though once the Browns went to training camp.

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

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Gordon injured his hamstring at a promotional shoot, and the Browns, leery of his past missteps, are reportedly already attempting to find willing trade partners. He didn't make much of that second chance as he was then suspended for all of 2015 and 2016 - again for violation of the substance abuse policy.

However, after that Pro Bowl season, Gordon was suspended for 44 consecutive games dating back to the final week of the 2014 season, which was a team ban for reportedly missing a walk-through prior to a trip to Baltimore to play the Ravens.

The Browns announced in mid August that Gordon finally had reported.

Josh Gordon will soon be a free agent. With Gordon gone, the team will rely heavily on Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway to work alongside Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku.
