"We wish Josh well".

The Browns have informed wide receiver Josh Gordon they will release him Monday.

If Josh Gordon has any say in where he gets traded, then don't be surprised if the Browns wide receiver ends up in Dallas or San Francisco. It appears Cleveland has no intention of trading the 27-year-old wideout within the AFC, so those landing spots both still are on the board. Taking on the rest of his $790,000 salary for this year might be cheaper than competing for Gordon on the open market, and the Browns can also transfer all of that financial obligation to the acquiring team if that team winds up cutting him.

Earlier Saturday, the Browns had downgraded Gordon from questionable to out for the Saints game, with a hamstring injury.

The Colts could use the type of talent Gordon brings on the field in the wide receiver room, but it isn't clear if that will be enough to offset the past issues he's dealt with off of the field.

The Browns selected Gordon in the second round of the 2012 Supplemental Draft. Jackson blamed Gordon's appearance on the first play to a "mistake" and "miscommunication".

Jon Gruden has quickly built the oldest roster in the National Football League, and Gordon last playing a full season in 2013 might fit that broader template. Gordon missed the 2015 season because of a drug suspension and opted to spend 2016 in rehab.

There's all kinds of speculation surrounding the Browns' decision to part ways with Gordon.
