Two schools of thought exist over whether the Cleveland Browns should cut wide receiver Josh Gordon.
Already facing a suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy, Gordon got into more trouble last weekend by getting charged with DUI.
Cris Carter, a Hall of Fame receiver, told cleveland.com the Browns should release Gordon, since Carter cleaned up his act after being cut by the Eagles in 1990.
"If you don't get help, you keep falling and it gets worse," Carter said.
Michael Irvin, another Hall of Fame wideout, disagreed in an interview with ESPN's Dan LeBatard.
Irvin had his own drug problems in the past, and he said that Carter urged Irvin's wife to leave him.
"He said to my wife – he said to my wife – 'you know, Michael will never come out of this problem until you leave him.'…I was so irked with Cris because he was out of line then. His ass is out of line now," Irvin said.
Gordon's teammate, safety Donte Whitner, agreed with Irvin that cutting Gordon would be the wrong move.
