Doug Baldwin discussed his health this morning with Cliff Avril on Sports Radio 950 KRJ. this morning where he made it clear that more surgeries are planned for the offseason. Baldwin, who just completed his eighth season with the Seahawks, told KJR that “more surgeries [are] on the way.
NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo followed up by reporting that Baldwin is set to visit Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia soon with the possibility of undergoing surgery due to a sports hernia. The meeting is expected to happen in early April with Baldwin fully expecting the surgery to occur.
Dr Meyers has also previously operated on Marshawn Lynch and Robinson Cano.
During the NFL Scouting Combine, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters that Baldwin underwent knee and shoulder surgeries after the 2018 campaign ended with a playoff loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
Baldwin, turning 31 in September, had multiple setbacks throughout the 2018 season in which he hosted his fewest targets since 2013 and finished with only 618 yard and five touchdowns.
It was originally suggested by the team that Baldwin would be ready for training camp and the upcoming season but that is in jeopardy depending on the results of his visit with Dr. Meyers
