5 teams who could take the risk and bring in Josh Gordon

  • Josh Gordon Released by Cleveland Browns

On Saturday night, it was reported the Cleveland Browns will part ways with wide receiver Josh Gordon, as Cleveland likely has grown exhausted of Gordon not being a reliable player for the team.

It is possible the Browns will try to trade Gordon before Monday so they can recoup something for a player whose has wasted his massive potential.

The 27-year-old has four previous substance abuse violations. He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 season due to various suspensions for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Gordon had 18 receptions for 335 yards and a touchdown in five games last season.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.Com reports that, according to league sources, Gordon "was not himself" when he showed up late to the Browns' facility, and "there was concern that perhaps he was struggling again with his sobriety or on the verge of relapsing". You're probably asking, "where will Baltimore put Gordon on the wide receiver depth chart?"

With the Browns shocking announcing on Saturday that they're going to "part ways" with Gordon, it's starting to look like that exit is going to come in the form of a trade, instead of him simply being cut by the team.

The Browns have invested a lot of time and energy into Josh Gordon's mental and physical wellness, and have likely reached a point where they feel he is not responding well enough to their interventions, on account of his personal life taking its toll.


But, I know what some of you are likely thinking.

"P.S. Anybody need a deep threat WR?" Furthermore, the Browns don't believe Gordon hurt his hamstring during practice, and ESPN's Adam Schefter cited an unnamed source who said the injury was suffered during a promotional shoot.

In a trade scenario, Baltimore should be interested targeting Gordon depending on the price.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan should be well-acquainted with Gordon.

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