Cleveland Browns to release Josh Gordon

Josh Gordon Released by Cleveland Browns

Schefter says teams are already showing interest in acquiring Gordon via a trade.

Gordon, 27, is scheduled to make just $790K this season before becoming a restricted free agent next offseason.

It's interesting - Gordon missed the start of Browns camp as he continued to receive treatment for issues that kept him out of the National Football League entirely in 2015 and 2016, but he returned before preseason ended and was expected to be one of their top receivers. Gordon had 18 receptions for 335 yards and a touchdown in five games last season.

With Gordon likely leaving Cleveland by Monday, the receiver said his goodbyes to the city in a letter he posted to Instagram on Saturday night.

Massachusetts State Police say troopers are responding to the area to help secure areas after "multiple suspected gas explosions". Not all of the fires have been fully extinguished yet, Mayor Dan Rivera said at a 00:30 local (04:30 GMT) press conference.

Cleveland announced its plans to cut ties with Gordon Saturday, sparking surprise throughout the NFL.

Twitter erupted after Gordon's shocking release with fans and reporters weighing in on the transaction that came out of nowhere.

Browns general manager John Dorsey released a statement.

Gordon missed most of training camp on a leave of absence to focus on his ongoing recovery with addiction. It simply would boil down to whether they feel Gordon would be a fit for the locker room.

Earlier Saturday, Cleveland ruled Gordon out for Sunday's game against the Saints with a hamstring injury.

"'Same book, next chapter...'" he added. "P.S".

The Browns selected Gordon in the second round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft. Both teams could use help at wide receiver. But Gordon would be a clear talent upgrade, if nothing else. He was away from the team for nearly the first full month of training camp and did not begin practicing until last week.
