The Seattle Seahawks are one of the best teams in the league this season at 8-3, and they could be adding another weapon to their offense. The league has reinstated wide receiver Josh Gordon after almost a year-long suspension, giving quarterback Russell Wilson another potential big-play option.

However, Wilson hopes Gordon seizes the opportunity he's been given and doesn't squander it.

Gordon played in five games for the Seahawks in 2019 after being waived by the New England Patriots. He totaled 7 receptions and 139 yards in those five contests before being suspended by the league for violating its substance-abuse policy. The wideout re-signed with Seattle ahead of the 2020 season but hasn't been on the active roster.

Gordon won't be eligible to return until Week 16 when the Seahawks play the Los Angeles Rams on Dec. 27, and his production has been down since his early breakout years, but his presence alone could be valuable. He led the league in receiving in 2013 with 1,646 yards. He's not likely the same player in 2020, but he remains at least a threat that defenses have to prepare for.

Gordon's pass-catching ability will only elevate a Seattle passing attack that averages the fourth-most passing yards per game (273.8) in the league this year.
