  • Josh Gordon Released by Cleveland Browns

But a source Saturday told cleveland.com that Gordon was "a little tardy" arriving to the facility, where he he complained of a pulled hamstring.

After previously announcing wide receiver Josh Gordon was dealing with a hamstring injury, the team announced they had released the 27-year-old wideout shortly after. The Browns were scheduled to fly to New Orleans on Saturday afternoon, for Sunday's Week 2 game.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Gordon injured his hamstring at a promotional shoot, and the Browns, leery of his past missteps, are reportedly already attempting to find willing trade partners.

The 27-year-old receiver has had a tumultuous career in the National Football League filled with highs and lows.

Gordon played 78 percent of the team's offensive snaps in the opening-week tie against the Steelers, even drawing an unexpected start that coach Hue Jackson called a "mistake" due to miscommunication with his offensive coordinator. "We wish Josh well".

John Dorsey announced in a statement that the club on Saturday afternoon informed the super talented but oft-suspended pass-catcher that he'll be released on Monday.

Gordon had just rejoined the team on August 18.

Josh Gordon's time with the Cleveland Browns is over.

Gordon, who returned in December from a three-year suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy, was expected to play a key role on a new-look Browns offense this fall.

Selected in the second round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft, Gordon exploded onto the scene during his second year, recording 87 catches for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns during the 2013 season.
