Seahawks position preview: Breaking down all 11 wide receivers
The Seahawks have a crowded wide receivers room with six vets and five rookies. Meet the new guys and find out who starts and who’s cut.
Going into camp the Seahawks will have 11 wide receivers on their roster. An insanely high number that could get even higher with all the rumors about Seattle looking for help from a potentially reinstated Josh Gordon, or the crazy possibility that the Seahawks go after Antonio Brown.
Seattle had a productive wide receiver duo to go along with Russell Wilson’s MVP-level season in 2019, with Tyler Lockett having another great year and rookie DK Metcalf having a season that showed he could be a future star. Aside from the dynamic duo, there was a lack of production from guys like David Moore and others which had Seattle searching this offseason for a third receiver.
Gordon showed flashes that he might have been a very good third option but wasn’t targeted enough and then was suspended once again. He has been working out in Seattle this offseason, however, and appears to be comfortable around the city and the team. If Seattle wants him back and Gordon can come back, there is a good chance he plays with the Seahawks again.
The Seahawks then resigned Moore, signed Phillip Dorsett II in free agency, drafted two receivers, and then signed three undrafted free agents. With this crowded wide receiver room, it will be interesting to see who steps up and who makes the roster.
But first, its breakdown time.
