Browns finally reach end of rope, will cut Josh Gordon

Despite Gordon's breathtaking amount of red flags and off-field issues, there should be plenty of receiver-needy teams eager take him up on his postscript offer.

Gordon has been suspended for a total of 56 games in his seven NFL seasons, 55 of which were league bans for positive drug and alcohol tests.

"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.

In a shocker announcement released Saturday night, the Cleveland Browns said they are parting ways with serially troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon.

Josh Gordon's latest comeback attempt has ended.

The team had stuck with Gordon, 27, through all his personal troubles over a period of six years but will part ways with him on Monday officially.

Speaking ahead of Spurs' game against Liverpool , Pochettino said, "Harry has all the profile of the midfielder - flawless ". We get so much information, we can see how the players react in different situations.

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

He wasn't wrong as soon after Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that Gordon was being released by the Browns.

Earlier Saturday, Cleveland ruled Gordon out for Sunday's game against the Saints with a hamstring injury. He remained away from the facility after receiving treatment in Florida but was cleared for the Week 1 game against the Steelers in which he played 70 snaps and caught a touchdown.

Gordon, drafted by the Browns in the second round of the 2012 NFL Supplemental Draft, caught 180 passes for 3,106 yards and 16 touchdowns in 41 career games with the team. He first was suspended in 2014, and did not play again until November 2017, when he was reinstated on a conditional basis.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon looks on at a drill during the final day of training camp in Berea Tuesday.
