Browns finally reach end of rope, will cut Josh Gordon

Share

On Saturday, team doctors examined Gordon and seemed to confirm he had a tweaked hamstring, but there also was concern that perhaps he was struggling again with his sobriety or on the verge of relapsing, sources told the website.

Gordon has dealt with multiple drug and alcohol-related suspensions since 2015, and today got the ax after he reported late to practice, complaining of a hamstring injury.

Taken in the 2012 Supplemental Draft, Josh Gordon has been a lightning rod for the Cleveland Browns both on and off the field.

Browns general manager John Dorsey said in a statement that the team has informed Gordon's representatives that he will be released Monday.

Gordon was late to the facility today, Rapoport reported. Gordon stepped away from the team this preseason to undergo counseling and treatment as part of his recovery.

Gordon caught the game-tying touchdown for the Browns in last week's game against the Steelers.

Earlier Saturday, the Browns had downgraded Gordon from questionable to out for the Saints game, with a hamstring injury. In 2014, Gordon was suspended for the whole year, but it was later reduced to 10 games.

In his seven-year career in Cleveland, Gordon played just 41 games (38 starts), making 180 catches for 3,106 yards and 16 touchdowns.

The NFL reinstated Gordon last season after he completed a lengthy rehab program.

The Browns got a glimpse of what a healthy and focused Gordon could do over the last five games of the 2017 season after his return from his latest NFL-mandated suspension, which lasted almost three full seasons. Additionally, Gordon was on the receiving end of five passes that went for gains of at least 20 yards and converted 12 first downs.
