  • He's not on the roster while suspended, and he only takes up a roster spot down the road as long as he is active and contributing. This is minimal risk for the Hawks as long as Gordon isn't a negative influence on other players.

  • Dude was supposed to come back and now is out again "indefinitely" again.

    It doesn't cost us to sign him but c'mon, if he's let off again, that same situation could happen regardless of how the club feels about it.

    AFAIK, I don't think JG is a daily hardcore user. Personally I've always felt like he was like many players in the league or many of us who enjoy a drink or a toke. Thing is he's under intensive indefinite probation/drug tests that really many normal adults wouldn't pass let alone someone with a more intensive problem.

    So he's a good guy and all, but he's not going to be that ideal 12 stepper type worried about no vanilla extract and making sure his cold remedies are alcohol free for his football life, which might be the only way he could make it. He's not going to be that guy and while it is unfair that he sort of is, we have no advantage in keeping him.

    Just let himm go.

  • Until there is some official announcement I will hold off from being excited by this situation. Perhaps he just rolled his contract upon the request of the team as it’d be doubtful there would much of any interest in him around the league.

    JG is a talented player but a flawed individual and it’s a no risk/high potential reward situation keeping him around to see if he will be re-instated by the league. So far Ursua is JAG from what we’ve seen up to now, he was pretty amazing in college though for the team to draft him late.

  • It's obvious to me there is more going on then meets the eye, the Seahawks know there is an issue with the NFL and must me trying to resolve it or they would not have opted in so soon to resign him.

    This story is strange at best.

  • True that!

    The wonderful world of life with drugs.

    I’m sure there are zero breaks afforded him by the NFL and the whole drug testing thing is frequently questionable. Suspect the team knows more than the league about this guy.

    I would be happy to see this player “break on through to the other side” and be as great as his physical talent would let him be.

  • Disagree...pending league info on what caused the last rescinding offense. Players may be bound by a "no comment' clause which, by making public statement, could be construed as not meeting leagues requirements. Because Gordon commented on his training and rehab arrangements he may have violated that clause resulting in the league returning him to the dead list. However, if he failed another drug test (which would mean he lied about getting that part of his life turned around) then I agree he should not be considered for reinstatement.

    Yep. This is the part everyone is missing by jumping to conclusions. We haven't got a shred of information from the NFL about his return to the list, which is highly unusual for a cut-and-dry substance abuse relapse situation.

  • I think we only ended up paying Gordon 100k, but his cap hit was 1M.

    So no thanks, I wish Josh the best but in a cap strapped year I'd rather not waste another 1M on a player that hasn't played in over a year.

    I saw the value last year of adding an elite WR mid season, I do not see that same value this year.

  • I'm assuming there is no cap relief for this. Since he was suspended, he was basically free unless re-instated. Right?

  • As for Gordon, he has signed with the Fan Controlled Football league and being released allows him to see action immediately.

    Gordon, in fact, took to Twitter late Thursday afternoon to state that he requested his release, apparently with an eye toward playing immediately in the FCF.

    “I personally asked Seahawks for release,” Gordon wrote. “The contract was expired but still legally binding.”

    Without their contracts being terminated both Gordon and Olsen would simply have become unrestricted free agents on March 17.

    Gordon also remains suspended by the NFL after having what was reported to be “a setback’’ in his recovery from substance abuse issues in December, and it’s unclear if he will ever play in the NFL again (the NFL’s official notice of Gordon’s termination Thursday noted he was released “from Reserve/Suspended by Commissioner-At Least One Year” list).

    Playing in the Fan Controlled Football league, a seven-on-seven league in which all games are played in Duluth, Georgia, will at least allow Gordon to show where he is from a football standpoint should his suspension be lifted. Gordon did not play in any games for Seattle in 2020 but played in five in 2019 after being claimed off waivers from the Patriots.

    Gordon’s signing with FCF was reported over the weekend and became official Tuesday. His team, the Zappers, also includes former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel. The Zappers are scheduled to play again on Saturday.

    We hardly knew you.

    Hope you get reinstated and have your issues under control.

  • This is good for Josh unless he gets hurt, he can stay in shape and maintain skills in a football environment, if and when the NFL says ok you can play with us again he will of course need to get screened but can do it when he dictates the first time and then just have to maintain it. He is no longer under the Monopoly of the NFL.
