When the Cleveland Browns shockingly announced they'd be releasing Josh Gordon on Monday, fans everywhere had the same question on their minds: why?

It's important to note the team has not formally made any roster move with Gordon. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Gordon suffered the injury during a promotional shoot.

"For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him", Browns general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. A Browns official told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the team's decision was inclusive of present and past issues.

The Browns were scheduled to fly to New Orleans on Saturday afternoon, for Sunday's Week 2 game.

The league's leading receiver in 2013, Gordon caught one pass for a 17-yard touchdown in last week's tie against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

As part of the sale, South Korea would also receive tactical radio, navigation and early missile warning sensors for the aircraft. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency delivered the required certification notifying Congress of this possible sale today.

Multiple violations of the NFL's policy on substances of abuse sidelined Gordon for most of his pro career since the Browns drafted him in the second round in 2012.

If Gordon's issues don't stem from substance abuse then there undoubtedly will be a number of teams looking to acquire a wideout with his huge talent.

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.

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon looks on at a drill during the final day of training camp in Berea Tuesday.

The NFL reinstated Gordon last season after he completed a lengthy rehab program. Additionally, Gordon was on the receiving end of five passes that went for gains of at least 20 yards and converted 12 first downs.
