Details emerge about Browns' decision to part ways with Josh Gordon

Gordon played 78 percent of the team's offensive snaps in the opening-week tie against the Steelers, even drawing an unexpected start that coach Hue Jackson called a "mistake" due to miscommunication with his offensive coordinator.

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.

Josh Gordon's very odd 6 years with the Cleveland Browns have gone up in smoke. the team just made a decision to release him. "Unfortunately, we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".

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. "We wish Josh well".

Earlier Saturday, the Browns had downgraded Gordon from questionable to out for the Saints game, with a hamstring injury.

Gordon reported the hamstring injury Saturday a source said.

Gordon missed the majority of training camp, taking time to make a concerted effort to improve his mental and physical health.

Gordon had just rejoined the team on August 18.

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

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. 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.
