Well Cleveland you gave Josh Gordon another chance and well today he blew it. The troubled wide receiver was released by the Browns today.
Team doctors took a look at Gordon and in addition to his hamstring issue there was a concern he had a relapse and was struggling with substance abuse again.
Today he was told to stay home from team’s trip to New Orleans for tomorrow’s game against the New Orleans Saints.
“This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday,” Browns GM John Dorsey said in a statement.
“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. We wish Josh well.”
Gordon just rejoined the team on Aug. 18 after spending a period of time in treatment at the University of Florida.
The 27 year old has been suspended for 56 of a possible 97 games in his Browns career.
Gordon seemed to have turned everything around till today.
And his play on the field has been tremendous when he is able to play.
Where will he end up? Will he play again? Hopefully he is signed before Dez Bryant.
Oh wait.. he could be traded!
The #Browns announced they are releasing Josh Gordon, but they may not get there. I’m told as many as five teams are researching possibly trading for Gordon. Cleveland has a market.
