He posted a picture that reads "CLAIMED BY SEAHAWKS" with the 28-year-old writing "Looove This!" Gordon, 28, might be a free agent at season's finish.
It's a quintessential Carroll move.
"We're looking to Baltimore at this point", he said.
"He's a big-play guy. They rave about his talent and play-making ability".
Josh Gordon #10 of the New England Patriots runs after a catch as Montae Nicholson #35 of the Washington Redskins defends during the first half at FedExField on October 6, 2019 in Landover, Maryland. In six games, he had 20 catches for 287 yards and a touchdown.
In December, Gordon was suspended indefinitely for violating the terms of his conditional reinstatement under the NFL's drug policy.
Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks was briefly with the Browns with Gordon in training camp before the 2018 season.
Finally, the Seahawks are going to like what they see from Gordon and the way he works with Wilson.
"It's lit", Kendricks said.
Throughout this career, Gordon has dealt with various issues off the field, which is one of many reasons so many teams likely passed him up. That suspension was lifted in August. He had just one touchdown which was in the team's season opener.
"He is a unique talent", Carroll said. Until this left knee injury, Gordon was the clear No. 2 receiver for New England. He never played another game for New England.
Gordon was cut by the Patriots on Thursday following a brief stint on injured reserve.
Bill Belichick wasn't feeling particularly sentimental when asked about Gordon on Friday morning.
The Seahawks and Carroll do.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Belichick gave the most Belichickian answer to the Josh Gordon release questions.
The Seahawks claimed him off waivers Friday after 27 other teams skipped over this incredible talent - in 2014 with Cleveland, he became he first player in National Football League history to have back-to-back games of 200 yards receiving - because the risk is relatively small.
