The NFL cancelled the 2020 preseason Monday.

Russell Wilson does not miss games at quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, but they resigned the same player that backed him up last year in Geno Smith.

Washington State’s quarterback last year, Anthony Gordon, was signed as a free agent by Seattle just moments after the NFL draft concluded and Gordon was not selected. Gordon and Smith are the only other two quarterbacks on Seattle’s roster.

The Hawks made the same move last year in adding Smith, making the deal on May 15th, so they make it happen one day sooner in 2020.
