Cleve­land will re­lease WR Gor­don

Texarkana Gazette - - SPORTS - By Tom Withers

CLEVE­LAND—Josh Gor­don's trou­bled ten­ure with the Cleve­land Browns has ended.

The team isn't go­ing to help him any longer. He's again on his own.

The Browns an­nounced Satur­day night that it in­tends to re­lease the for­mer Pro Bowl wide re­ceiver, whose im­mense tal­ent has been over­shad­owed by sub­stance abuse that has de­railed a promis­ing ca­reer.

The stun­ning news came just hours af­ter the Browns said Gor­don would miss Sun­day's game in New Or­leans with a ham­string in­jury. Gor­don has been sus­pended by the NFL for most of the past four sea­sons be­cause of mul­ti­ple drug vi­o­la­tions, and the Browns have been sup­port­ive of the 27-year-old for years as he tried to get his life to­gether.

Not any­more.
