Browns to release Josh Gordon

Browns surprisingly rule out star WR Josh Gordon vs. Saints

Six days after bizarrely starting the Week 1 tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers despite head coach Hue Jackson claiming he would not, the much-maligned wide receiver Josh Gordon has been informed that he will be released and subject to waivers on Monday.

There was an "overall trust issue" between Gordon and the team, according to reports. The news of his release was announced Saturday evening, prior to Sunday's matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

The fact that Cabot is reporting Gordon was "not himself" is a really bad sign for a guy who has struggled with substance abuse issues for years. He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons before returning previous year.

Given his vast talent it wouldn't be shocking if a team took a chance on him immediately. Although he missed the first two games of the 2013 season due to suspension, he led the league with 1,646 receiving yards on 87 catches and scored nine touchdowns in route to Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors.

Cristiano Ronaldo opens account at Juventus, then adds another
The first half ended goalless, but in the second half, Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal for Juventus in the 50th minute. Juventus, seeking a record-extending eighth successive Serie A title, are the only team still with a flawless record.

Hopefully he gets his life together.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees completed 28 of 35 passes for 243 yards and 2 touchdowns - both to former Ohio State Buckeye Michael Thomas while Alvin Kamara added 99 yards combined from scrimmage in the victory. However, a hamstring injury Browns coach Hue Jackson said Gordon suffered while conditioning prevented him from practicing until September 3. The Browns, after all, haven't won a game in more than a year. Williams returned it 22 yards to the Cleveland 18.

It turned out to be Gordon's final game with the Browns, who are expected to start Callaway in his place Sunday.

Can the Cleveland Browns really hang in there with the NFL's elite, for two weeks in a row?
