Gordon missed most of training camp on a leave of absence to focus on his ongoing recovery with addiction.
Cleveland's move came after Gordon - who was ruled out of Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints with a hamstring injury - reportedly did not arrive to the Browns' facility on time earlier in the day.
The Browns selected Gordon in the second round of the 2012 supplemental draft and he led the National Football League in receiving yardage in 2013 despite playing in 14 games but he's served 56 games of suspensions while playing in just 41 games.

The National Hurricane Center said a gauge in Emerald Isle, North Carolina, reported 6.3 feet (1.92 meters) of inundation. An extremely powerful hurricane is forecast to make landfall in the southern part of the United States later this week.
The team provided no specifics about what prompted their decision to part ways with Gordon. "As it relates to football, I'm doing well".
Gordon hauled in a 17-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Tyrod Taylor that allowed the Browns to draw even with the Steelers and force overtime, where the game ended in a 21-21 tie, a first in the 68-year history of the rivalry. It is reasonable to think that continuing to make exceptions for Gordon, could have had a negative impact on the entire team despite his huge talent.
