There’s (still) no update on Seahawks WR Josh Gordon’s reinstatement


It’s been 125 days since Josh Gordon applied for reinstatement. That happened on June 18. The Seahawks re-signed Gordon a few months later on Sept. 3.

Other than that, we still don’t know any more about where Gordon stands with the league. It’s been radio silence for months now, and Pete Carroll reiterated again on Wednesday that he is in the dark just like the rest of us.

“We really don’t know and don’t have contact to speak of,” he said. “We don’t know any more than you do at this point. We’re just waiting it out for word from the league unfortunately.”

Gordon played five games for the Seahawks in 2019 after being picked up midseason off of waivers. He caught seven passes for 139 yards in those five contests.

Of note, Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that the Seahawks might make a push to sign Antonio Brown after Brown’s suspension is lifted following Week 8. Carroll didn’t share much on Seattle’s interest to Brown, but he did say that any potential signing has nothing to do with the delay in Gordon’s reinstatement.

“Those situations are not connected,” Carroll said. “They’re being handled independently.”

The wait continues…
