The news about Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has been coming at a furious pace since Saturday night. After it looked like Gordon would be without an NFL home soon, now reports indicate there are several teams interested in trading for him.

The Browns announced Saturday night they intended to release the troubled player on Monday, but a trade might be finalized before then:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter said Gordon had his eye on two receiver-needy teams in big markets, the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers.

Gordon played for the Browns last Sunday; his only catch in Week 1 was a clutch 17-yard touchdown that tied the game in the fourth quarter and forced overtime. The Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers went on to tie 21-21.

But after years of waiting for Gordon to get on the straight and narrow and helping him battle addiction problems, the Browns finally had enough this weekend when Gordon turned up at the facility with a hamstring injury he sustained in a photo shoot, according to multiple reports.
