The 29-year-old recently joined the Fan Controlled Football league in February with the Zappers, a franchise that includes former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel. Gordon’s release from the Seahawks allows him to officially join the Zappers in the new football league.

Gordon caught seven passes for 139 yards in five games with the Seahawks in 2019 before being suspended in December 2019.
