Cleveland Browns to cut ties with wide receiver Josh Gordon

082518-jg-2560

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.

"This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday", Browns general manager John Dorsey said.

News of the Browns' intent to part ways with Gordon came out Saturday evening when ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the team's intent to release Gordon on Monday. "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".

Few players were more thrilling than Josh Gordon when he was actually on the field for the Cleveland Browns.

The 27-year-old receiver has had a tumultuous career in the National Football League filled with highs and lows.

The team quickly moved to deactivate him for Sunday's game at the New Orleans Saints, with Rapoport calling the move "unexpected".

The National Hurricane Center , in its latest advisory, said that Hurricane Florence was about to make landfall in North Carolina. Union Point Park is flooded with rising water from the Neuse and Trent Rivers in New Bern, N.C., September 13, 2018.

Gordon was a second-round pick by the Browns in the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft.

After leading the league in receiving yards and being named an all-pro in 2013, the league suspended him indefinitely during the 2014 season after his fourth violation of the NFL's drug policy.

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

Browns head coach Hue Jackson had said in mid August that he never lost trust in Gordon.

In those five games, Gordon turned 18 catches into 335 yards and one touchdown. With Gordon gone, the team will rely heavily on Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway to work alongside Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku.
