Sep 16, 2018 10:13 AM

Josh Gordon will be released or traded by the Cleveland Browns and he hopes to end up with either the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys.

The Browns provided no details behind their decision to part ways with Gordon, but a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that he broke the team's "trust" when he reported to the facility Saturday with a hamstring issue after being a full participant in practice all week. 

Gordon will have no says in where he is traded but Gordon is hopeful that it's to a place that can provide the support and understanding what his needs.

Patriots Sign Corey Coleman, Bennie Fowler

Sep 11, 2018 11:03 AM

The New England Patriots have signed Corey Coleman and Bennie Fowler.

The Patriots have had a revolving door at receiver in 2018, as they are buying time until Julian Edelman returns from a four-game NFL suspension. Chris Hogan and Phillip Dorsett are atop the depth chart, with Cordarrelle Patterson the No. 3 option.

Coleman entered the NFL as a 2016 first-round draft choice of the Cleveland Browns, but never reached the expectations that come with being selected with the No. 15 pick.
