Josh Gordon is expected to be traded by Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, and the former All-Pro receiver has a pair of preferred destinations. 

Per Schefter, Gordon would like to be traded to San Francisco or Dallas, looking to join a pair of NFC squads with a shallow crop of wide receivers. The two teams fit Cleveland's reported goal of dealing Gordon to an NFC team. 

However, Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the Cowboys will not pursue Gordon and will instead sign wide receiver Brice Butler.

Cleveland announced its intent to release Gordon on Saturday night. The five-year veteran was ruled out for Sunday's contest at New Orleans with a hamstring injury, reportedly injuring his hamstring during a promotional photoshoot.

“For the past six years, the Browns have fully supported and invested in Josh, both personally and professionally, and wanted the best for him, but unfortunately we’ve reached a point where we feel it’s best to part ways and move forward,” Browns general manager John Dorsey said in a statement. “We wish Josh well.”

Cleveland lost to the Saints without Gordon on Sunday.
