After former Seahawks receiver Josh Gordon was reinstated by the NFL late last week, speculation has swirled about a potential reunion between the former Baylor star and the ‘Hawks.
Now, some concrete evidence of a potential reunion has surfaced, with Seahawks General Manager John Schneider suggesting that the Seahawks are ready to begin speaking with Gordon right away.
Seahawks GM John Schneider says on pregame radio show he can't comment officially on Josh Gordon yet because he has not been reinstated by the league yet. But he then added "when things are taken care of officially we'd like to get rolling with him.''— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) September 26, 2021
Gordon’s most recent reinstatement comes after he was indefinitely suspended by the league in January 2021 for violating the substance abuse policy. He had previously been granted conditional reinstatement from a suspension stemming from a 2019 violation of the league’s policy while he was with the Seahawks. During his time with the Seahawks, Gordon had 7 catches for 139 yards in five appearances.
The Seahawks don’t necessarily have a need for Gordon at the moment, but should Freddie Swain, Dee Eskridge, or Penny Hart go down with an injury (and Eskridge has already missed time), a signing couldn’t hurt too badly. Add in Tyler Lockett’s injury scare in Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings and it’s perhaps something Seattle could explore once again.
