Mark Maske and Jeremy Gottlieb, The Washington Post Published 6:28 pm PDT, Saturday, September 15, 2018 The sometimes-promising, often-troubled pairing of wide receiver Josh Gordon and the Cleveland Browns appears done. On Saturday, the Browns announced they plan to release Gordon on Monday. The move comes only one game into Gordon's latest attempt to return to the Browns and reestablish himself as a standout NFL player, following a series of suspensions under the league's substance abuse policy. "This afternoon we informed Josh Gordon and his representatives that we are going to release him on Monday," Browns General Manager John Dorsey said in a statement. "For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we've reached a point where we feel it's best to part ways and move forward. We wish Josh well." Gordon had a tying touchdown catch late in regulation last … [Read more...] about Browns to cut ties with wide receiver Gordon

I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. ... We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell.

Question from Johnny: Hey Jimmy what are you talking about? Do you think Sproles forgot how to catch? 547 catches later. Maybe when he catches 548 you will be a believer. I hope you were joking, if not, why do you waste your time to inform when you are less so? You have a great platform, be better. I know you can. Lol. This was in response to one of my practice notes over the weekend. I wrote the following: To note, I know that Sproles gets a lot of credit for being this great receiver, but I think he's a little overrated in that area. He has his share of drops, and it's also worth noting that he probably has the smallest catch radius in the NFL, which makes him a difficult player to throw to. Beginning in 2016, I started charting the Eagles' drops every year. Since then, I have Sproles down for 7 drops and 74 … [Read more...] about Eagles mailbag: Are we sure Darren Sproles is a good receiver?
