After sticking by Josh Gordon through drug suspensions that seemed to last for at least three or four seasons, it looks like the Cleveland Browns have finally had enough.

Late last night, the Browns surprised everyone by revealing that they were going to be releasing the troubled star. 

After finally getting the talented wide receiver back, working him back into Tyrod Taylor's offense and seemingly being all the way back - the Browns decided that they basically didn't think they could trust him to keep on the straight and narrow anymore.

So, what's next for Josh Gordon? 

Well, according to some reports that are flying about, the man himself has three very prominent destinations for where he wants to restart his career in the National Football League.

According to a tweet from NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, a man you can usually trust when it comes to inside sources, the first two teams that Gordon has a keen eye on are the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys.

Both teams make sense for Gordon. In San Francisco, he'd get to be a part of Kyle Shanahan's offense that picks up yards and points while catching passes from Jimmy Garoppolo - who's a part of a new wave of NFL QBs looking to take the place of old-timers like Tom Brady, Philip Rivers and Drew Brees.

Meanwhile, at the Cowboys, Gordon would get to play for his home-town team close to where he played his college football at Baylor and hopefully in an environment that's better suited to keeping his demons at bay.

Rapoport failed to mention the third contender, however. The Jacksonville Jaguars.

According to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, Gordon told a Browns teammate that one team he wants to strongly consider is Jacksonville.

Why Jacksonville? Well, they're definitely a big contender to make it to the Super Bowl and they need some star quality at wide receiver - considering their starters out wide are Keelan Cole, Donte Moncrief and Dede Westbrook. 

We're just glad that the Patriots weren't any of the teams Gordon wanted. That would be too unfair on the rest of the league.
