Any interest? I say yes...if very cheap, incentive laden, and short term.

If they put in a claim on him, they would pick up his current contract, no? Or has he already passed waivers?

Pretty sure he is a vested veteran.
With all his suspensions, he may not be.
Anyway if he is vested, he does not have to clear waivers.
He is a FA and can sign with anyone.
His old contract is void.
What was his injury?
I really don't see him fitting in Green Bay.

He has to pass waivers before becoming a free agent. If picked up off of waivers, his current contract will still be in place.

My understanding was that since he's missed so much time due to suspensions etc, that he isn't vested. Or at least he wasn't fairly recently. It's possible that he is now though.

The way this is written on PFT suggests that he's only a free agent if no team claims him: https://profootballtalk....-indeed-waived-thursday/ 

I think there may be some obscure post trade deadline rule at play here too.

Very Correct! (As far as I think)

1) I believe anyone release after the trade deadline goes on waivers... even the veterans.

2) You need four years of 6 games or more played (or being in the IR for that time) to be Considered a veteran.

NFL.com says he's in his 4 year now (and he played 6 games, so next time his contract is up, he'll be a veteran FA... but he wasn't going I to this season.

Also he has two different years of only 5 games with the Browns... which kinda killed (severely delayed) his veteran status.

As said earlier, post trade deadline everyone has to pass through waivers, even vested veterans. We won't be getting him.

I would welcome Josh Gordon. He is very talented.


Update: Talk in New England that Josh Gordon’s work ethic was a concern

That has always been his problem, along with the drugs and alcohol.

He has come to the point where his god given talent isn't enough anymore to stay elite and it seems he doesn't want to do the work.

How many chances can a player get?

The Patriots didn't want to kerp him is a big enough red flag for me.

He has to go thru waivers to become a FA unless the article I found is just wrong.
He had a golden ticket in NE and blew it after several previous opportunities to get his act together.
Hope he finds his way....somewhere else!
If Adams wasn't on the verge I would maybe say maybe.

Has talent.... but another head case.
Probably would have been more trouble then help.

Over/under on the number of days he remains on the Seahawks roster? I'm starting it at 17.5.

Zero2Cool (20-May) : Research projects can be tons of fun!
Nonstopdrivel (20-May) : I don't have any hospital responsibilities, just the endless onboarding process. I'm working on some research projects too.

Nonstopdrivel (14-May) : Watching my medical school commencement from by living room. 😂
Cheesey (14-May) : My favorite position on the Packers is the PUNter!😝
Cheesey (14-May) : Does that mean I should be PUNished?🤪
Nonstopdrivel (12-May) : I'd say most of your puns recently have been more of a stretch than string cheese, but Nostridamus was a masterpiece. I wouldn't nominate it for a Pullitzer anyway.
Cheesey (12-May) : LOL Wayne! I appreciate your comment. You and Non made me feel my “cheesiness” is still worth something here.
wpr (12-May) : I will apologize Cheesey. I saw it and considered it to be the typical cheese spread. I failed to recognize the masterpiece of pun it truly is. mea culpa
Cheesey (12-May) : Nonstop, I honestly wondered if anyone would get it! And you probably were the only one! Good job!🤪
Nonstopdrivel (11-May) : "Nostridamus" -- that might be your best pun yet, not least because it took me almost an entire day to get it.
Cheesey (11-May) : Wayne...is she gonna keep YOU?😂
Cheesey (11-May) : Nostridamis told me that Booger was being released....from the end of my finger!😁
wpr (10-May) : last December. I think I'll keep her.

KRK (10-May) : Seriously, IMO he was excellent in the role he was in the previous year
KRK (10-May) : To be fair to the guy it snot all his fault.

Nonstopdrivel (10-May) : Booger McFarland won't be back in the MNF booth this year. And there is much rejoicing.
Nonstopdrivel (10-May) : Happy Mothers Day to our resident Kevins: Zero2Cool and KRK.
Nonstopdrivel (10-May) : Nah, my record is squeaky clean. It's just a reminder of better times and bad mistakes.
KRK (10-May) : NSD, when you have a history of crime, it can't be easy :-)
beast (9-May) : A link to it on twitter
Nonstopdrivel (9-May) : Filling out background check applications is so fucking depressing.
KRK (9-May) : Beast, where did you see that...re Watson/Bears.
beast (9-May) : And PFT pulls back information from before his draft (including his own words), to suggest Watson might currently be mistaken.
beast (9-May) : Deshaun Watson tweets "The bears NEVER ONCE talked to me.." when aruging against the Bears evaluating him... on a discussion about teams choicing QB based on race.
Zero2Cool (8-May) : Yup. Make it like week 11 or something. Have some Hall of Fame induction thing or something.
Nonstopdrivel (8-May) : I would rather the entire league took off the same week.
Cheesey (8-May) : I don’t like it either, Zero. But there’s not much we can do about it.
Zero2Cool (8-May) : It'd be more important if the BYE was later. I don't like how the NFL does their BYE weeks.
Smokey (8-May) : Week 5 Bye as important as a game !
Zero2Cool (7-May) : And now it's being said Vikings week 1 vs Packers.
