Gordon was upset about it, one of the sources said, surmising he was mad because he felt he had let down the team with the hamstring.

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".

The Cleveland Browns announced Saturday that they are going to release wide receiver Josh Gordon on Monday.

The team had stuck with Gordon, 27, through all his personal troubles over a period of six years but will part ways with him on Monday officially. "We wish Josh well".

Hurricane Florence starts battering US East Coast
Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 80 miles from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 195 miles. It says the threat of freshwater flooding will increase in coming hours and days from the storm's heavy rains.

The stunning news came Saturday night, just hours after the team announced that Gordon would miss Sunday's game in New Orleans with a hamstring injury.

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

Gordon has dealt with multiple drug and alcohol-related suspensions since 2015, and today got the ax after he reported late to practice, complaining of a hamstring injury.

Additionally, Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot reports that Gordon showed up late to the facility on Saturday and was described as "not himself", which the Browns believed was a sign of a potential relapse.

There was also a standout result in England's Nations League group on Tuesday night as Spain thumped Croatia 6-0 in Alicante. We kept the ball better after half-time also.

Gordon had just rejoined the team on August 18.

Browns head coach Hue Jackson had said in mid August that he never lost trust in Gordon.

After a substantial amount of time away from the team during the preseason, Gordon returned in time to play against the Steelers last week, hauling in a touchdown grab in the 21-21 tie.
