Seahawks Claim "Unique Talent" Josh Gordon Off Waivers

Share

Gordon was released by the New England Patriots off injured reserve this week, a calculated move so contenders couldn't get him as it subjected him to the waiver process.

When everything is said and done, Gordon doesn't seem terribly likely to play this week. It ended what had been strong year for the Gordon, who had 40 catches for 720 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games.

This season, Gordon has 20 receptions for 287 yards and a touchdown. If part of Bill Belichick's reasoning for getting Gordon on waivers was to prevent the WR from joining a contending team in the AFC, his plan worked.

Gordon had been positioned on injured reserve on October 23 with a "minor harm designation" that required the Patriots to launch him as soon as wholesome, which the group did on October 31.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll made it clear that the team felt Gordon's talent was too unique to pass up.

"... He's a big-play guy and can stretch the field".

It's a bit of a surprise because it means several teams with higher waiver priority passed, but it's also a almost ideal fit for Gordon, whose big-play ability could see him return to Fantasy relevance in Seattle.

The New England Patriots gambled on the superstar talent in September of 2018. Around that time the NFL suspended him indefinitely for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement under the league's substance-abuse policy.

"We released him because he was healthy", Belichick said. That suspension was lifted in August.

In his breakout sophomore season of 2013, he led the National Football League with 1,646 receiving yards, 117.6 yards per game and a season-long 95-yard reception. They already have Tyler Lockett and their own talented rookie, D.K. Metcalf.
