The Josh Gordon era in Cleveland is officially over. The Browns put out a statement on Saturday saying they’ve come to terms with the release of the six-year wideout. They didn’t say why, however.

Gordon did play Week 1 against Pittsburgh, of course, racking up just 17 yards on one reception. But after multiple suspensions, it’s over. Again, we don’t know why. The Browns didn’t say just yet. And I’m sure we’ll find out more in the next few days.
Across six seasons, the 2013 All-Pro caught 180 passes for 3,106 yards and 16 touchdowns. Across 14 games that season, he led the league in yards with 1,646. We don’t know if he’ll be able to land anywhere in the near future, but it should be interesting in the weeks to come.
