Seattle Seahawks Claim Josh Gordon

Shockingly the Seattle Seahawks have claimed Josh Gordon off waivers.

I’ve been talking to people over the last week about potential landing spots for Gordon and Seattle was at the top of all of their lists. Seattle offers the perfect mix of opportunity and structure for Gordon.

Seattle is a team that has a solid foundation and positive culture. Players love playing for Pete Carroll and Gordon has a built in relationship with quarterback Russell Wilson. The Seahawks also have a need at wide receiver.

Gordon will start at receiver along Tyler Lockett in the slot and opposite rookie DK Metcalf. This landing spot is a great opportunity that could turn into a long term deal for “Flash” Gordon in Seattle.

Many teams likely passed on Gordon’s talent due to his off field history, a history that hopefully is just that. Carroll has been successful bringing in players with off field issues in the past. I hope for both parties this pairing is another success.
