NFL Rumors: Seahawks Claim Former Patriots WR Josh Gordon Off Waivers

Josh Gordon reportedly has a new home.

The Patriots placed the wide receiver on injured reserve Oct. 23 before being released from IR by New England on Thursday. But it didn’t take long for the 28-year-old to land somewhere else, as NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported the Seattle Seahawks claimed Gordon off waivers Friday afternoon.

Seattle was No. 28 on the waiver wire.

Gordon certainly will boost the Seahawks’ offense and provides Russell Wilson with another weapon on the gridiron. He won’t be available for Week 9, but it’s probably smart to assume he will be ready for Week 10 if he is healthy.

The 28-year-old had 20 catches for 287 yards in six games for the Patriots this season.
