A breakdown of trust between the Browns and troubled receiver Josh Gordon ultimately led to his departure Monday, after he allegedly misled the team and sustained an injury while shooting a commercial at the Berea, Ohio, facility, sources tell The Athletic. Regardless, the Browns finally had their fill, and the fact that they were able to get anything for Gordon counts as an upgrade. "Watch for them this week".

Fournette, 23, ran for 1,040 yards and nine touchdowns in 13 games as a rookie after he was selected by the Jaguars with the fourth pick in the 2017 draft.

The move came as a surprise to some, given Gordon's history of substance abuse and suspensions, but Warren is not anxious at all. Gordon has struggled with substance abuse in the past, and served an indefinite suspension from the National Football League, which lasted nearly three years. If coach Bill Belichick can keep Gordon focused and hungry, the potential rewards are off the charts. He was signed by New England on August 27, 2018, released on September 1, and added to the practice squad on September 12. While this all does depend on Gordon, his hamstring is reportedly alright and he should be playing Sunday against the Detroit Lions.
