Seahawks Re-Sign Josh Gordon
The Flash is BACK! Josh Gordon is back in the NFL. The former supplemental second-round pick from Baylor has signed back with the Seattle Seahawks. Gordon last played for Seattle during the 2019 season but left the team before the year ended. The man with 1,000 lives is back in the league.
Jeremy Fowler of ESPN was the first to report the news:
Gordon, 29, is still explosive. Since 2012, Josh Gordon leads the NFL in yards per reception (17.2). Gordon is always a tremendous deep threat when on the field. It’s a low-risk move with Gordon signing a 1-year contract for $1 million.
Gordon played five games for Seattle after being claimed off of waivers from the Patriots. In 11 total games, Gordon finished with 27 catches for 426 yards and one touchdown. Gordon hasn’t played in 16 games since his rookie season.
It’s hard to say if this has any impact. I don’t think this move happens without the blessing of Russell Wilson. We also don’t know if Gordon is going to be on the field. If he is, it could steal targets away from DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. It likely wouldn’t matter, but Seattle is so run-heavy that an extra body in there could impact things from a fantasy perspective.
I think the DK Metcalf breakout season is coming. I just hope the Gordon signing doesn’t steal any of that thunder. More likely than not, Gordon won’t be there at the end of the season anyway. Regardless, this feels like the very last chance Gordon has in the NFL.
