Panthers placed CB Cletis Gordon (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.
Gordon was vying for a special teams and fourth corner job in camp. As long as the shoulder injury isn't serious, he could resurface with another team during the season after a settlement with the Panthers. Thu, Aug 25, 2011 06:20:00 PM

Date:

Panthers signed CB Cletis Gordon, S De'Von Hall, and FB Richie Brockel to one-year contracts.

They're all camp body types. Gordon is a big corner at 6-foot-1, 212, but almost strictly a special teamer. Brockel and Hall have played under Ron Rivera before, but none of the above will be likely to make the roster.

Giants worked out free agent CB Cletis Gordon on Tuesday.

Gordon is a capable fourth corner who could provide depth with Aaron Ross nursing a plantar fasciitis injury.

Cowboys released CB Cletis Gordon.

After cutting both Gordon and Barry McCann today, it appears the Cowboys are prepared to roll with three corners, not including rookie S/CB Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. Gordon is still only 27 and can help a team as a fourth corner.

Cowboys reserve CB Cletis Gordon has made a positive impression thus far in training camp.

Gordon is competing with sixth-round pick Jamar Wall and undrafted rookie Bryan McCann for the fourth corner spot. "If you pinned me down and said who is the guy right now, I'd say Cletis Gordon," Cowboys secondary coach Dave Campo said. "He's been in the league. I like what he's doing."

Cowboys agreed to terms with CB Cletis Gordon on a one-year contract.

The team originally wasn't going to tender Gordon as a restricted free agent, so he agreed to a reduced salary. Gordon is only of special teams help.
Thu, Mar 4, 2010 05:23:00 PM

Cowboys re-signed CB Cletis Gordon.

Dallas is thin because Alan Ball has taken over as the club's starting free safety with Ken Hamlin (high ankle sprain) out indefinitely. Gordon, 26, knows Wade Phillips' scheme and can immediately step in as a dime corner.

Cowboys released CB Cletis Gordon.

He was just signed last week. Dallas needed an option on punt returns, so Allen Rossum will take Gordon's place on the roster.
Tue, Oct 13, 2009 05:07:00 PM

Cowboys signed DB Cletis Gordon.

Gordon played under Wade Phillips in San Diego three years ago, but he's just being brought in for emergency depth with Gerald Sensabaugh (thumb) and Mike Hamlin (wrist) out.

Lions waived CB Cletis Gordon.

They're going with former Vikings third-round pick Marcus McCauley instead. Gordon has a $1.545 million salary and will likely clear waivers this time.

Lions claimed CB Cletis Gordon off waivers from the Texans.

Gordon is versed in man coverage, which new Detroit coordinator Gunther Cunningham will use plenty of, but the 26-year-old isn't a candidate to start.
Wed, Sep 2, 2009 05:51:00 PM

Texans waived CB Cletis Gordon.

Gordon immediately becomes a candidate to return to San Diego, where the team is desperate for a fourth cornerback. Gordon can also return kicks.
Tue, Sep 1, 2009 04:56:00 PM

Texans signed CB Cletis Gordon, formerly of the Chargers.

Gordon, a dime back/special teamer, will provide depth with Dunta Robinson holding out and Jacques Reeves sidelined.
Thu, Aug 27, 2009 05:51:00 PM

Chargers released CB Cletis Gordon.

The Chargers were reportedly unhappy with his "lack of physicality" on special teams, so they're giving him a chance to catch on elsewhere. 2008 first-round pick Antoine Cason will be the Bolts' nickel back this season.
Tue, Aug 25, 2009 08:56:00 AM

Chargers signed restricted free agent CB Cletis Gordon to a one-year, $1.545 million contract.

While we try to figure out why the release of the regular season schedule is even remotely a big deal when we already knew who everyone will play, Cletis Gordon is signing one-year deals. The special teams performer/dime back will compete for playing time with Antoine Cason in training camp.
