Browns to release WR Josh Gordon

Browns' Gordon (hamstring) out vs. Saints

Reports also claim Gordon was healthy all week, then showed up late on Saturday and had a hamstring injury all of a sudden.

After the Browns arrived in New Orleans, the team's brass gathered and decided it couldn't trust Gordon and it would be best to move on.

Monday's release will end the tumultuous relationship between the mercurial wide receiver and the Cleveland Browns. The Cleveland Browns announced they would release Gordon on Saturday and the reasons why are beginning to trickle out.

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

I would say "there's always next week", but that probably won't be the case for Gonzalez. "If the guy wants to play football, he needs to get into camp sooner than later".

Gordon missed all of training camp because he was dealing with personal issues related to the substance-abuse problem that has almost derailed his career. After missing almost three years of his prime, he played in the final five games last season and compiled 18 catches for 335 yards and a touchdown. A team spokesman said Gordon complained of hamstring soreness and was ruled out. 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.

The 27-year-old receiver is as physically gifted as anyone at his position in the National Football League, but he hasn't been able to escape his off-field demons. Yet Gordon, 6-foot-3 and 225 pounds, played 69 of the offense's 89 snaps (78 percent).

Thomas, who had 16 receptions in the team's Week 1 loss to Tampa Bay, had 12 for 89 yards and two touchdowns, the first one a 2-yard score with 8:41 left in the fourth quarter.
