  • I may be in the minority, but I think he's a damn good receiver. And he makes it look easy. Really hoping he ends up back in Seattle.

  • Would welcome him back with open arms. Made some clutch catches for us, could have been the straw that put us over the hump against Green Bay if we had him.

  • I hope this happens soon.

    A healthy and motivated Gordon would significantly upgrade the WR corps.

    I don't think you are in the minority, our offense looked alive when he was playing.

  • He was pretty clutch for us. His catch against Carolina (ended up being his last of the season) was just incredible - maximized the degree of difficulty. I just wish they would use his downfield ability more, he was kind of just a possession guy for us. But one thing he does do is absorb coverages, which opens up Lockett and Metcalf.

    The problem with Josh is that every time he is given another chance, he goons it. It seems like he will always revert back to his bad habits. Yes, I am aware the league changed the marijuana policy (which has been his primary bugaboo), but he strikes me as a guy who will always find his way into trouble.

    It's a tough scenario for a team.

    But, is talent is undeniable. I'd feel much better about our WR group with him in the mix.

  • Hope he does, but I’ll only take him back if he signs dirt cheap. As someone with addiction issues of my own, I sympathize strongly with him, but he’s too unreliable to invest anything significant in. Thankfully, we have a quality WR core, so signing and losing him again likely wouldn’t be a killer.

  • He just seems to run perfect routes, rarely drops the ball, and clearly can make the clutch catch. Add Gordon to DK and Lockett, plus Dis, Olsen and Hollister? Hell yes.

  • I like Gordon and think he is a weapon Russ trusts.

    Lockett
    DK
    Gordon
    Dorsett

    This is a very strong 4 WR group.

    Moore, Ursua, and Swain in a tight competition for #5. Also there are still rumors about Antonio Brown to Seattle.

  • Although I'm excited to see what Dorsett can do Gordon is probably better. Maybe even better than lockett if good to go. I just dont think he can stay clean and not talking about the weed

    That’s a heck of an overstatement. 2013 was a long ass time ago.

    Just say NO! on AB. This player is a head case and would quickly become a distraction.

    I agree with the sentiments here and above expressed that Gordon who'd be a positive addition back to the O would need to be on restricted contract and a short leash as he's been less than dependable previously.

  • I suspect Josh Gordon is getting very close to his very last chance in the NFL.

    We don't know whether he was suspended for PEDs or just the presence of a masking agent with the last suspension. I suspect it might be the later rather than PEDs but we don't know. Given his repeated failures of the drug policy for weed he'll get another chance, and that's good as he is a talented player. However, he'd be wise not to test the league's resolve with further breaches of the drug policy.

    The team might want some particular language in any deal with him to protect themselves. He needs to prove his reliability before any significant contract is offered to him. Re-signing him would be a huge positive for the WR depth if he's cheap.

  • On a 3rd down when the O Line is getting pushed around and Russ is running for his life etc. Quick 3rd down slant, Gordon is $ on those plays. It matters a LOT for a team that doesn't pass block well.

  • I would love to see Gordon back on this team. He played well for us last season. But more importantly I hope he is able to get his life together and not have to rely on drugs. That's even more important.

    Agree. IF Gordon gets another chance I would bet it's his last. But if he can make a go out of it the Lockett/DK/Gordon combo, combines with our barn of TEs and a solid backfield outlet (Beast?) comprises a lineup the equal of any in the league.
    AGREE AB is a deal breaker. Reminds me of another Harvin deal. Would far rather see a return of Richardson than AB.

  • AB would be a low risk high reward signing, considering it's likely that no teams out there will give him much, if any guaranteed money.

    Maybe the team will finally respect Wilson's wishes, and bring in the superstar talent he has been asking for.

    Hell NO on AB. We don't need that diva on this roster. He's not going to magically become some team player who doesn't whine like a 5 year old when he doesn't get the ball enough.

  • Only Lockett and Metcalf deserve any playing time.

    Everyone one else are like, “who?”

    Gordon must return cause our receiving corps are not deep enough without him.

    I’ll take Lockett, Metcalf, Gordon and AB.

    That would be a great receiving four, possibly best in the league.

  • Not just no on AB, a HELL NO. He is an absolute cancer to the locker room. No way he will be ok with being the third WR option on this offense. Stay very far away.

  • I like the current receiving core and don't see a need for additional signings. Let's give the young guys a chance. I trust that Moore and one of the 1st or 2nd-year guys will emerge. And, with the depth at TE we are likely looking at more 12 personnel.

    I love what he can do on the field but don’t necessarily want to bump a young WR prospect for a guy that hasn’t been able to stay available.

    “potential” isn’t a word I’d use for Gordon. He entered the NFL in 2012.
