Gordon would have the ability to be a top target for the Jags and give Bortles a consistent threat for the deep ball, especially with Lee sidelined. It's likely Gordon wouldn't make it through the waiver wire unclaimed. "This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday", read the statement in brief. We wish Josh well on his journey.
Initially, reports were simply that Gordon didn't report to the team facility on time Saturday morning. ESPN also reported that he suffered a hamstring injury at a promotional shoot.
He took the news in stride though, posting an Instagram story thanking the Cleveland Brows faithful for supporting him throughout the rocky ride.
Of course, that's good news for Gordon, because, apparently, that's exactly what he wants.
But if Gordon ends up unclaimed, he will become a free agent.

No matter how you look at it, this deal has to be seen as a massive victory for Mueller and his special counsel team. The 69-year-old political consultant was convicted last month in federal court on charges of bank and tax fraud.
As teams discuss potentially trading for outgoing #Browns WR Josh Gordon, I'm told he's got his eye on two in particular: The #Cowboys and the #49ers. "It's a week-by-week basis". Gordon was in the NFL's substance-abuse program and if he failed another drug test, he could be facing more discipline. But he missed all of 2015 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
Gordon is still just 27-years-old. Gordon had 18 receptions for 335 yards and a touchdown in five games last season.
With Gordon gone, the Browns' passing game will rely more heavily on wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Rashard Higgins. He returned to the Browns on August 18 and received clearance from the National Football League to practice August 25.
He started the opener despite coach Hue Jackson saying Gordon wouldn't be on the field for the first snap as punishment for missing camp.
It is unclear what the release means for Gordon's playing future.
