Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin may be unable to continue his career due to the effects of multiple injuries, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The team confirmed on Friday night that Baldwin is considering retirement.

"We know Doug is going to have a hard time. There's a process we need to go through with Doug," Seahawks general manager John Schneider said in a press conference with head coach Pete Carroll after Day 2 of the draft wrapped up.

"He is working through it," Carroll said.

The 30-year-old wideout has battled various ailments recently. He played through knee, hip, and shoulder injuries during the 2018 season, missing three games as a result.

Baldwin underwent hernia surgery last month and Schneider recently admitted that the receiver is without a timetable for a return.

Seattle traded up to the final pick of the second round to select wide receiver D.K. Metcalf in the 2019 draft.
