Seahawks officially have re-signed WR Josh Gordon, per his agent @davidcanter.

Yesterday we noted this had to be a week of action and things are starting to move.
With covid testing stretching over three days, the weekend is pretty much the deadline for getting business done ahead of the opener in Atlanta.
The Seahawks had another meeting with Justin Britt yesterday as it seems increasingly likely he’ll return as the starting center. They’ve also now made a move to re-sign Josh Gordon.
His status still seems somewhat unclear. The Seahawks were clearly waiting for him to be reinstated but there’s no official word yet (this could be forthcoming).
Either way, it was a no-brainer to bring him in. Russell Wilson needs all the weapons he can get. Gordon’s long list of suspensions and issues don’t change the fact that he’s incredibly talented and now creates a legit three-pronged attack with Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf.
We saw glimpses of his quality last season — including the remarkable downfield grab against Carolina and numerous vital third down conversions.
There’s no risk here because the price will be minimal. If he doesn’t last the season again, there won’t be any major financial ramifications. It’s a common sense signing with plenty of upside.
The question now is what happens next?
Could an end to the Jadeveon Clowney saga be forthcoming?
Per @CharlesRobinson now on @1025TheGame : If Clowney will happen, next couple days. Titans frustrated by "lack of engagement," have wanted to get him in for a physical. He turned down $17-18M range from Browns. It's Titans or Seahawks. Seahawks around $12M. Titans likely similar

Again, if Clowney is going to play in week one something needs to be done by the weekend. We’ll see if deadlines spur results in this instance.
The Seahawks did sign a returning defensive end but it’s Damontre Moore instead. They need someone to fill the hole left by Branden Jackson and there’s still no guarantee that Clowney will sign. It’s a plausible stop-gap for now.
