Josh Gordon Released by Cleveland Browns

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

The team provided no specifics about what prompted their decision to part ways with Gordon.

We don't know the official word yet, but the Browns clearly reached the end of their rope with Gordon, who is one of the most talented receivers in the National Football League but has struggled with his sobriety and been a thorn in the Browns' side after the team went above and beyond to help him recover. Jackson had previously said Gordon would start the game on the bench because he wanted to give other receivers who had been with the team all camp the opportunity.

The Browns announced they will release wideout Josh Gordon. Gordon reportedly was late to the team's facility Saturday and showed up with an injured hamstring after being fine all week.

Cleveland parted ways with Gordon, 27, Saturday afternoon after six seasons with the team. "We wish Josh well".

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?

Even with Gordon's multiple suspensions and missed time rendering him a third-year veteran, he has accrued enough National Football League service to be a free agent then.

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.

Gordon had just rejoined the team on August 18.

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

If the Browns release Gordon on Monday as stated, he'd become a free agent and wouldn't require to clear waivers.
