Josh Gordon is the odd man out in Kansas City.
NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday that the Chiefs are releasing Gordon, per a source informed of the decision.
With the Chiefs adding newcomers JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, rookie Skyy Moore and the improved play of Justin Watson, Gordon had an uphill battle to make the K.C. roster from the onset of training camp.
The veteran generated just one catch on five targets in 67 preseason snaps, per Next Gen Stats.
Gordon joined the Chiefs in 2021, playing in 12 games and earning five catches for 32 yards and one touchdown.
It’s been nine years since the wideout blasted onto the scene with an All-Pro season in 2013 with the Cleveland Browns, in which he led the NFL with 1,646 yards. Famously, multiple season-long suspensions derailed his career. While he’s been great in the community in Kansas City and the club has had nothing but great things to say about the 31-year-old, Tuesday’s release could spell the end of Gordon’s days in the NFL.
“I’m proud of Josh for all that he did. There’s a chance he’s potentially back here,” Chiefs head coach Andy Reid said Tuesday.
Appreciate all the @Chiefs kingdom has done for me and my family this past year. Thanks for the opportunity and the many memories. 🙏🏾
