Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Josh Gordon has only spent a little over a month in the Emerald City, but it sounds like he is already satisfied with his current living environment.
“Oh yeah, absolutely,” Gordon told reporters via NBC Sports Northwest. “Seattle is amazing. Football aside, I’d definitely love to live in a place like this.”
However, Gordon also praised the Seahawks’ culture and chemistry on the field, as well as the competitive nature of the team.
“I think I’m just fortunate in general to have landed in a place like this with a coach like this,” Gordon said. “It’s real family-like. It’s real close, real tight-knit – a real lively, energetic group. And competitive more than anything. They love the game of football. You can see it. It’s a great feeling to come back to football and enjoy what you do.”
With six receptions for 81 yards through four games and most of them being crucial catches, Gordon is taking things from game to game and from play to play in the Seahawks offense.
“Anywhere I can be of use to the team, to the offense, to try and get us a catch, move the chains, five yards, it doesn’t matter,” Gordon said. “Any way to try and make a positive influence on the game plan, I’m there for it.”
In addition to making contributions to the Seahawks’ ambitions this season, Gordon wishes to stay in Seattle for the long-term future.
“That’s my hope,” Gordon said. “Thinking optimistically, I think that’s every player’s goal: to try and find a place you can call home. In all aspects I think that’s a bonus.”
