Patriots release WR Josh Gordon, now subject to waivers

The New England Patriots will be releasing WR Josh Gordon off of IR, subjecting him now to the waiver wire. He could be with a new team as soon as Friday.

He left New England's Week 6 matchup against the New York Giants with a knee injury. In six games with the Patriots, he had 20 receptions for 287 yards and a touchdown.

With a banged-up offense, is this a move the Lions should consider?
