If Gordon's issues don't stem from substance abuse then there undoubtedly will be a number of teams looking to acquire a wideout with his vast talent.
Gordon missed most of training camp on a leave of absence to focus on his ongoing recovery with addiction.
The Browns announced on Saturday that they will part ways with receiver Josh Gordon following the team's Week 2 game against the Saints. "Unfortunately, we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward".
Gordon was late to the facility today, Rapoport reported. "We wish Josh well".
On Saturday, Gordon was ruled OUT for this weekend's game due to a hamstring injury, but clearly that wasn't the only concern for members of the front office.
Gordon had just rejoined the team on August 18.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Gordon injured his hamstring at a promotional shoot, and the Browns, leery of his past missteps, are reportedly already attempting to find willing trade partners.
Browns head coach Hue Jackson had said in mid August that he never lost trust in Gordon.
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?
After a substantial amount of time away from the team during the preseason, Gordon returned in time to play against the Steelers last week, hauling in a touchdown grab in the 21-21 tie.
