Seahawks open to Josh Gordon returning this season
Apparently it isn’t too late for a reunion in the Pacific Northwest with the month of August now officially upon us. Although many Seattle Seahawks fans would like the franchise to bring back Pro Bowl pass rusher Jadeveon Clowney, this reunion would actually involve free agent wide receiver Josh Gordon, who spent part of last season in the state of Washington.
According to a Monday evening report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Seahawks are “open” to the notion of Gordon returning to Seattle for the upcoming 2020 campaign.
With the rest of the NFC West continuing to get better throughout the offseason, it appears as though the Seahawks are looking to keep an even playing field on both sides of the line of scrimmage. After recently acquiring Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams via trade from the New York Jets, the Seahawks remain vigilant in terms of making an upgrade at the wide receiver position.
Outside of Seattle, the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers made a slew of roster moves en route to bolstering a variety of different positions, while the up-and-coming Arizona Cardinals infamously managed to acquire All-Pro wide out DeAndre Hopkins by way of a trade with the Houston Texans.
The 29-year-old Gordon was once again suspended by the NFL on an indefinite basis back in December as the veteran pass catcher violated the league’s policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse. When on the field, Gordon has repeatedly shown that he can be one of the best in the game at his position. However, remaining on the field has been the biggest obstacle of his NFL tenure.
