The Browns selected Gordon in the second round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft. He went on to play five games that season, recording 18 catches for 335 yards. After a superb 2013 season in which Gordon caught 87 passes for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games, the talented pass-catcher couldn't stay on the field.

It is unclear specifically why the Browns chose to cut ties with Gordon, but his release will bring to an end a saga of off-the-field problems related to Gordon's substance abuse suspensions and addiction. With Gordon gone, the team will rely heavily on Rashard Higgins and Antonio Callaway to work alongside Jarvis Landry and tight end David Njoku.
