According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has likely played his final down in the NFL. Schefter said multiple injuries have taken a toll on him.

If this is the end, the 30-year-old Gulf Breeze, Florida native spent his entire career with the Seahawks. He completed his eighth season with the team in 2018.

Baldwin — if he cannot play again — was one of the most popular players with the Seahawks in this era of the team.

If this is the end of the road for Baldwin, this will be the third Seahawks player, who had his career cut short due to injuries. Both defensive end Cliff Avril and hard-hitting safety Kam Chancellor were forced to retire following neck injuries.

The Seahawks are planning a post-June 1 designation to release Chancellor. Avril was released by the team on May 4, 2018, as the team saved $71.25 million by making the move.

Baldwin has two years left on his contract. He is slated to make $19.5 million over those two seasons.

He was expected to make $9.25 million during the 2019 season. He was also expected slated to make $10.25 million in 2020.

This off-season, Baldwin has undergone surgery on his groin and his shoulder. The Seahawks may have known this, as they used the last pick in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft on wide receiver D.K. Metcalf.

During the 2018 season, he had 50 receptions for 618 yards and five touchdowns. The 618 yards were the fewest yardage in a season when he had 366 yards in 2012.

In his playing career, he had 123 appearances, including 90 starts. He had 493 receptions for 6,563 yards and 49 touchdowns. The longest reception of his career was for 80 yards during the 2015 season.
