The Seahawks exited the draft with one quarterback on their roster. Over the past few years, they have not poured much in the way of resources into the spot. But they now have two QBs, as of Sunday afternoon.
Washington State product Anthony Gordon will sign with the Seahawks as a UDFA, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets.
A one-year starter with the Cougars, Gordon took over for Gardner Minshew after he became a sixth-round Jaguars pick in 2019. In Mike Leach’s final Washington State offense, Gordon put up monster numbers and surpassed Minshew statistically. Among Division I-FBS passers, only Joe Burrow bettered Gordon’s 5,579 yards and 48 touchdown passes — accomplished in 13 games compared to Burrow’s 15. Gordon completed 72% of his throws last season and played in the Senior Bowl.
Wilson and Gordon are the Seahawks’ only QBs for the time being. Wilson has never missed a start in his eight-season run as Seattle’s quarterback. Geno Smith spent 2019 as Wilson’s backup, but he remains in free agency. While it’s likely the team will add a third quarterback before training camp, another two-QB setup in Seattle will be likely for the 2020 regular season.

Blake Bortles would be a solid back up QB
wow those are crazy one year numbers. might be a good get.
They’re not as good as they look. I’m a big WSU fan, he probably attempted 65 passes a game. He got eaten alive if he couldn’t abuse a team underneath, but he did have some balls on deep shots. More accurate than Minshew but not as smart or charismatic.
Cam Newton is still available and Andy Dalton will be soon.
Be ready, RW plays run for your life football.
I have no clue why New England didn’t draft him at any point in the draft, let alone anyone. Then they proceed to sign some nobody with disgusting numbers, especially for a college kid.
