September 16, 2018

Additionally, Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot reports that Gordon showed up late to the facility on Saturday and was described as "not himself", which the Browns believed was a sign of a potential relapse.

Gordon's huge talent has been overshadowed by substance abuse that has derailed a promising career. I wish all of you nothing but the best.

From shock to weighing in on what it means for Gordon's future and even Dez Bryant, the reactions were priceless.

Earlier in the day, the team declared Gordon OUT for this weekend's game due to an injury.

Once that happens, Gordon will leave behind a very complicated legacy in Cleveland.

Jackson refused to elaborate on the situation this week, saying he and the coaching staff wanted to "move on".

After leading the league in receiving yards and being named an all-pro in 2013, the league suspended him indefinitely during the 2014 season after his fourth violation of the NFL's drug policy. Additionally, thanks to some interesting service time rules, Gordon would immediately hit free agency rather than go through waivers if the Browns cut him loose. Promising rookie Antonio Callaway also could get more looks.
