Seattle Seahawks release Josh Gordon, Greg Olsen

The Seattle Seahawks on Thursday officially released wide receiver Josh Gordon, who was suspended indefinitely, and retired tight end Greg Olsen.

The moves were procedural, with Gordon having joined another league and Olsen having already announced his retirement on Jan. 24.

Gordon is joining the startup Fan Controlled Football league as a member of the FCF Zappers, where he'll again be a teammate of former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, team owner Bob Menery told ESPN's Adam Schefter on Saturday.

Gordon returned to the Seahawks on a one-year deal last offseason, technically making him an unrestricted free agent in 2021.
