Gordon has thousand-yard receiving potential and has a chance to take the ball to the endzone every single time he touches it. He’s had two season-long suspensions for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, but the Seahawks think this is a good move.
With Tom Brady, this season Gordon has 20 receptions for 287 yards and a touchdown. He has career totals of 240 receptions, 4113 yards, and 20 touchdowns. And has only lost one fumble.
Let’s see how this affects the run first options of Pete Carroll and Brian Schottenheimer.
The Seahawks were 28th in waiver order.
Update: Gordon should be available for the 49ers game next Monday according to Pete Carroll. They need to run him through some physical drills first to confirm availability.
