Browns to ‘move on’ from Gordon
Aday after Josh Gordon said he’s entering rehab, Cleveland Browns coach Hue Jackson said the team intends to “move on” from the wide receiver.
“What we need to do is just close that chapter right now,” Jackson said Friday. “He is not going to be with us. We wish him well.”
Gordon, who has been suspended for 30 of the Browns’ past 35 games, announced Thursday that he’s stepping away from football to get his life together. He was scheduled to return from his latest four-game suspension next week and possibly play Oct. 9 against the New England Patriots, but he has chosen to put his career on hold to address an unidentified addiction.
