Seattle Seahawks Sign Josh Gordon to a One Year Deal

Josh Gordon

The Seattle Seahawks were up bright and early to announce they had re-signed wide receiver Josh Gordon. The troubled wideout signed a one year deal that could be worth over $1 million in on the field incentives.

But first Josh Gordon must be reinstated into the NFL.

Last December we saw Gordon suspended indefinitely from the league after he once again failed to follow the league’s substance abuse policy. As many might know, Josh Gordon has had a long lasting battle with substance abuse in the past, and even has missed two full seasons due to this issue. 

When he is on the field though, he makes plays. In just 14 games we saw Gordon led the league in receiving yards and was voted First Team All-Pro with the Cleveland Browns in 2013. Last season he played five games with New England before being waived and picked up by Seattle. While he only started one game with the Seahawks, he was able to average nearly 20 yards a catch in his short time there. 

Sources following the situation have described his reinstatement process as “going good” and “imminent”, thus giving Seattle the confidence to go ahead and pull the trigger on resigning him. If Josh Gordon can stay on the field, clean and healthy, hopefully he can find a significant role in the Seahawks offense.
