Seahawks Re-Sign Suspended Wide Receiver Josh Gordon to 1-Year Deal
Josh Gordon’s agent, David Canter has confirmed that the veteran wide receiver has signed with the Seattle Seahawks on a 1-year deal.
The #Seahawks have re-signed WR Josh Gordon, per agent @davidcanter. Gordon gets a 1-year deal with some upside to get him over $1M upon reinstatement. As of now, Gordon is still waiting for that.

Gordon applied for reinstatement to the league in mid-June after he was suspended indefinitely last December for violating the league’s policies on substance abuse and performance-enhancing substances.
His most recent suspension was the sixth time Gordon has been suspended from the league since the 2013 season, and the fifth that involved some form of substance abuse.
In five games last season with the Seattle, Gordon caught seven passes for 139 yards. The Seahawks claimed the one-time Pro Bowl receiver when he was released off injured reserve by the New England Patriots in November 2019.
