The news comes hours after the Patriots wide receiver wrote on Twitter that's he's temporarily stepping away from football in order to focus on his mental health.
Analysis: Gordon has been suspended multiple times by the NFL for violations of its drug policies since being drafted by the Browns in 2012. He missed the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Prior to trading Gordon, Browns officials said they felt it was time to cut ties with him. Gordon had an All-Pro season in 2013, with 87 receptions for 1,646 yards and nine touchdowns. He's caught 40 passes for 720 yards and three TDs with the Pats.

Analysis: Gordon has 17 catches for 266 yards and one touchdown in five games with New England. He hasn't made the kind of impact fantasy owners had hoped.
|Oct. 29, 2018 8:06 PM PT9:06 PM MT10:06 PM CT11:06 PM ET3:06 GMT11:06 8:06 PM MST9:06 PM CST10:06 PM EST9:06 PM CT7:06 UAE (+1)23:06 ETNaN:� - Josh Gordon had four receptions for 42 yards Monday in the New England Patriots' 25-6 win over the Buffalo Bills.|

Analysis: Gordon was fully expected to play, though NFL.com reports that the Patriots are expected to sit him out for at least most of the first quarter for being late to a team function earlier in the week. The oft-troubled wide receiver may have a lesser role than usual if that's the case.

Analysis: Though yet to have a breakout performance since coming over in a trade with the Browns, the talented yet troubled wide receiver may be nearing one after being targeted a season-high nine times a week ago.
|Oct. 14, 2018 7:40 PM PT8:40 PM MT9:40 PM CT10:40 PM ET2:40 GMT10:40 7:40 PM MST8:40 PM CST9:40 PM EST9:40 PM CT6:40 UAE (+1)22:40 ETNaN:� - Josh Gordon had five receptions for 42 yards Sunday in the New England Patriots' 43-40 win over the Kansas City Chiefs.|

Analysis: It's entirely expected considering Gordon has suited up in each of the past two weeks despite questionable tags. Though he caught his first TD pass as a Patriot in the team's Week 5 win over the Colts, the former Brown has been targeted just six times in two games with New England.
|Oct. 4, 2018 7:45 PM PT8:45 PM MT9:45 PM CT10:45 PM ET2:45 GMT10:45 7:45 PM MST8:45 PM CST9:45 PM EST9:45 PM CT6:45 UAE (+1)22:45 ETNaN:� - Josh Gordon had two receptions for 50 yards and one touchdown Thursday in the New England Patriots' 38-24 win over the Indianapolis Colts.|

Analysis: Gordon also dealt with a hamstring issue last week and was held to 32 yards on two catches in his Patriots debut. The oft-suspended wideout probably still isn't ready for owners to trust for fantasy production.

Analysis: Gordon will make his Patriots debut after being a limited practice participant through the week, though exactly what role he'll have with his new team is anyone's guess.
|Sep. 17, 2018 12:35 PM PT1:35 PM MT2:35 PM CT3:35 PM ET19:35 GMT3:35 12:35 PM MST1:35 PM CST2:35 PM EST2:35 PM CT23:35 UAE15:35 ETNaN:� - The Browns have traded problematic wide receiver Josh Gordon to the Patriots for a fifth-round draft pick. The deal came together Monday, two days after the Browns reached a breaking point with Gordon, who has been suspended for much of his NFL career. Gordon played in Cleveland's season opener, but reported to the team on Saturday with a hamstring injury after practicing all week.
Analysis: Gordon's tantalizing talent had caused the Browns to hang onto him while he dealt with drug and alcohol dependence. He missed training camp to receive treatment and the Browns were cautiously optimistic he would help them this season.

Analysis: Gordon's only catch last week was a 17-yard TD reception with 1:58 remaining in the fourth quarter that helped Cleveland play to a 21-21 tie with the Steelers. He missed a good portion of training camp to concentrate on his well-documented battles with substance abuse.
|Sep. 15, 2018 4:03 PM PT5:03 PM MT6:03 PM CT7:03 PM ET23:03 GMT7:03 4:03 PM MST5:03 PM CST6:03 PM EST6:03 PM CT3:03 UAE (+1)19:03 ETNaN:� - Gordon's troubled tenure with the Cleveland Browns has ended. The team announced Saturday night that it intends to release the former Pro Bowl wide receiver, whose immense talent has been overshadowed by substance abuse that has derailed a promising career.
Analysis: The stunning news came just hours after the Browns said Gordon would miss Sunday's game in New Orleans with a hamstring injury. Gordon has been suspended by the NFL for most of the past four seasons because of multiple drug violations, and the Browns have been supportive of the 27-year-old for years as he tried to get his life together.

|Sep. 7, 2018 11:57 AM PT12:57 PM MT1:57 PM CT2:57 PM ET18:57 GMT2:57 11:57 AM MST12:57 PM CST1:57 PM EST1:57 PM CT22:57 UAE14:57 ETNaN:� - Gordon (hamstring) will play but won't start in Sunday's game against Pittsburgh. His playing time will be limited as he works his way back to full strength.
Analysis: Gordon still isn't expected to play a major role due to the injury and him missing a good portion of training camp to concentrate on his well-documented battles with substance abuse. He's a definite hold in fantasy leagues but not a recommended starter for Week 1.
|Sep. 4, 2018 3:31 PM PT4:31 PM MT5:31 PM CT6:31 PM ET22:31 GMT6:31 3:31 PM MST4:31 PM CST5:31 PM EST5:31 PM CT2:31 UAE (+1)18:31 ETNaN:� - According to the Akron-Beacon Journal, Gordon won't start in Week 1.
Analysis: We still think Gordon might get a lot of snaps, but rookie Antonio Callaway will get the first look at wideout.
|July 23, 2018 9:22 AM PT10:22 AM MT11:22 AM CT12:22 PM ET16:22 GMT0:22 9:22 AM MST10:22 AM CST11:22 AM EST11:22 AM CT20:22 UAE12:22 ETNaN:� - Gordon got the go-ahead from the NFL to practice. Now one of his hamstrings is holding him back. The former Pro Bowl wide receiver, whose career has been derailed by drug and alcohol addictions, was released by the league on Saturday to resume all on-field activities with the Browns after being limited to attending meetings, working out and watching practice since returning from a three-week absence.
Analysis: Gordon took part in the team's pre-practice walk-through on the field after the team removed him from the active/non-football injury list. The team was going to bring him along slowly, and then that plan got altered because Gordon "tweaked" his hamstring a few days ago.

Analysis: Gordon returned to the Browns and played five games last season following an NFL suspension and a lengthy rehab stint. He led the league with 1,646 yards receiving in 2012 and was an All-Pro in 2013, but he's played just 10 games over the past four seasons. After being re-instated last season, Gordon caught 18 passes for 335 yards and one touchdown.
