Browns to release WR Josh Gordon

Browns to release WR Josh Gordon”

The Browns announced they will release wideout Josh Gordon.

Although the Browns never provided an official reason behind Gordon's release, it was reported by The Athletic's Zac Jackson that Gordon was late to the team facility Saturday morning.

Browns kicker Zane Gonzalez missed 2 extra points and 2 field goals Sunday as the Saints rallied from a 12-3 fourth quarter deficit for a 21-18 victory at the Superdome in New Orleans.

Gordon played all 16 games as a rookie, but his series of suspensions for violations of the NFL's substance-abuse policy began the next season.

Gordon missed more than three weeks of training camp this summer while receiving treatment tied to his struggle with addiction. After missing almost three years of his prime, he played in the final five games last season and compiled 18 catches for 335 yards and a touchdown.

Given his enormous talent it wouldn't be shocking if a team took a chance on him immediately.

Hopefully he gets his life together.

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

The New Orleans Saints and Cleveland Browns could not have scripted a more engaging close to their game. After a superb 2013 season in which Gordon caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games, the talented pass-catcher couldn't stay on the field. However, a hamstring injury Browns coach Hue Jackson said Gordon suffered while conditioning prevented him from practicing until September 3. Schefter later tweeted that league sources think the Browns will attempt to trade Gordon prior to Monday.
