Josh Gordon Joins Seahawks as Russell Wilson's New Weapon

By , WEEI 93.7

A day after being released by the Patriots and put on waivers, Josh Gordon has been claimed.

According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the former Patriots wide out is now a member of the Seahawks. New England is likely happy that he is not in the AFC and likely will not impact any of its games the rest of the season.

Bill Belichick didn't have much to say about him when speaking earlier on Friday.

“We released him because he was healthy. Passed his physical," he said.

In six games this year, Gordon recorded 20 receptions for 287 yards and one touchdown. Overall, in 17 games with the Patriots Gordon totaled 60 receptions for 1,007 yards and three touchdowns.
