On Saturday, the Browns announced wide receiver Josh Gordon would be released following the team's Week 2 Game Sunday in New Orleans.
The former Pro Bowler Gordon—who had already been ruled out with a hamstring injury—has played in just 11 games since 2014 due to various suspensions for substance abuse violations. It is not yet clear what the breaking point was, but general manager John Dorsey says the organization has "reached a point where we feel it’s best to part ways and move forward."
Reaction to the move came quickly on social media, with many glad to see Gordon finally gone for good.
Others were perplexed, wondering why the Browns would cut Gordon now after sticking with him for so many years.
Even current and former teammates chimed in, with many taken aback by the move.
But of course, many just repeated the all-too-familiar phrase: "Same old Browns."
