Report: Former WSU QB Anthony Gordon signs with Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks

Anthony Gordon didn't hear his name called during the three-day 2020 NFL Draft, but it didn't take long for him to find his future home. 

The Washington State quarterback has signed with the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. He will have the opportunity to learn from seven-time Pro Bowler Russell Wilson, as the Seahawks have just one quarterback on their roster as of now. 

During his two years in Pullman, Gordon threw for 5,579 yards and 48 touchdowns for the Cougars, while leading the NCAA in passing yards per game with 429.2. 

He was named Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Week on three occasions, All-Pac-12 Second-team and a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award, a prestigious honor given to the nation’s best quarterback. Gordon became the third-straight Washington State quarterback to receive an NFL Scouting Combine invite in February. 

Now, the nation's leading passer will have the opportunity to compete to be Russell Wilson's backup.
