  • Another try at a FA TE for 6/1. Not cheap for a second string TE for a team with little cap space.

    I thought it was Higbee who always gave the Hawks fits?

    Screw it, they both gave this team fits, like most of the opposing TEs throughout the league have for what seems like an eternity.

  • Terrible signing. Cant block. Supposedly we have little cap room and use it on another TE who we dont use(maybe it changes). Still no oline or dline signings. Barely less than the olsen signing, will we ever learn.

    No. Zach Miller was the best TE this regime has ever invested in, and they used him to block 90% of the time. Crazy that he was one of the very first PC/JS signings.

  • Everett comes from the Los Angeles Rams, where he played under new Seahawks offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, who was previously LA’s passing game coordinator and was Rams tight ends coach during Everett’s rookie season.
    Waldron is expected to bring a lot of concepts from the Rams to his offense with Seattle, and tight ends have played a big role in the Los Angeles offense that Waldron helped run under head coach Sean McVay.

  • Not the move I would have made, especially at that price. Hope he makes a fool out of me.
    Helps to have an in with a newly hired coordinator.

  • Good signing IF we actually use him though I’m not sure how, if at all, this appeases RW.

    Lots of needs. Not lots of cap space but maybe we just are not as creative in that area as other teams?

  • I have to admit, I was hoping we'd sign him to a short term deal. Seems like a fit and offers something that Disley and Parkinson don't. Not the same player, but at times he reminds me of a poor man's Anquan Boldin.

  • YEAR / GAMES / REC / YDS / TD
    2020 / 16 / 41 / 417 / 1
    2019 / 13 / 37 / 408 / 2
    2018 / 16 / 33 / 320 / 3
    2017 / 16 / 16 / 244 / 2

    Seriously? This is a $6M tight end? GREAT SIGNING!

    Even if he was productive, Seahawks do not know how to use TEs.

    Glad they spent $6M for $1.1M of value. At least they didn't waste money on a decent DE or RB. They should be able to fill those positions for $1-2M no problem. LOL at this sorry excuse for a front office.

  • An anticipated move. System fit TE for the Seahawks at the right price. He's a $5M player with $10M potential. He's a poor blocker who doesn't show any willingness to become better at that part of the game. He's not good on timing routes and his hands are inconsistent. He's a play-breaks-down receiver who needs an ad-lib QB. He's a medium, (and deeper), receiving threat with enough speed and physicality to create chunk plays. He's been a tease for 4 years in a system that didn't fit him. I'd liken him to a smaller and less explosive Jared Cook.

  • On a side note ....................

    I'm curious about tight end Tyler Mabry. I'm thinking the Shane Waldron hire boosted Tyler's prospects for 2021. He can line up in multiple positions and he can block. The Waldron hire should make Mabry all round ability a good fit in the new offense. But of course he'll have to compete to prove it.

    ............... I'm anticipating a good start to the new Waldron era.

  • Ehh we talked about this before. I saw him coming here, so did others. It's cool. Not sure we needed it. We've always been good at plugging in te we had for cheap but since we had Jimmy we try to force te's in this offense. I thought we would be ok with dissly, Parkinson and bring back Hollister. It's cool though. Everett will be nice. Has a bit of the dropsies, but he could do well here.

    We could have used that money toward more oline.

  • Hate the pick. Strapped for cash and they throw 6 million at a guy who had 400 yards receiving and 1 TD last season. I'm sure Waldron vouched for him because they are buddies or something, but come on. Cant say its unexpected though, Seattle does this every year. Greg Olson part 2 coming up.

    My hope is that he can come here and do better when he’s not behind Higbee, Woods, and Kupp for targets. Here he’ll have to compete with Lockett and DK, and those are longer yardage threats rather than short yardage guys like Kupp and Higbee. Also, Everett averaged the 4th most yards after catch among all TE’s. That’s something we’ve sorely lacked.

  • I am so tired of short term deals

    We are in the cap issue with so many FA players because we have been signing short term deals

    Very few long term solid players have been signed as FA by Hawks and we have no draft picks.

    So next year back in the same boat with no TE

  • Everett is a direct upgrade to Hollister. We could see Hollister dealt for some late draft capital from the 5th to 7th, which in addition to the performance upgrade would further justify the salary.

    He's a free agent already I think.

    Hollister was a sub par player, this is a good upgrade. Now you have an inline blocker in Dissly, a flex tight end in Everett, and a wild card in Parkinson.

    I like the signing. It's a prove it deal and someone who knows the system. I don't care if he only had 400 yards a year, he wasn't the focal point there with Kupp and Woods. He won't be here either. 6m is a little bit high but I would rather have him than a 2m guy like Hollister that shouldn't be out there in the first place.

    You're right. Proceed to ignore me, lol. No idea why I thought he was under contract.

    Regardless, I do enjoy the signing. He knows the coordinator, has great yard after catch ability, and should provide a reliable target for Russ in an offense that figures to utilize tight ends more effectively and more often.

  • Honestly, calm down guys! Plot twists...Hawks trade 1 or 2 TEs for drafts picks, but they have to make sure they got thier upgrade first.

    Is this dude an upgrade? Yes! Do we like upgrades? Yes! I want better OLmen more then anyone, but I love the position up grade and I am willing to see how the next week turns out. What are we, 3 days deep into FA? With trades and draft picks coming up we have plenty of time!

    Is he a 3m dollar upgrade though? Twice the player as Hollister?

    Here's an idea i'm throwing out there. How about drafting a TE thats actually worth a damn. That would be different.

    He's probably a 3m dollar upgrade, yeah. If they drafted a tight end, all you guys would whine about how they shouldn't have drafted a tight end. Not every need can be filled via the draft, it just doesn't work that way.

    If they ever drafted one that was any good, I doubt you would hear any complaining. Lets look at their drafting at the TE position over the years.

    Anthony McCoy, Luke Willson, Nick Vannett, Will Dissly, Colby Parkinson, Stephen Sullivan. Sheesh, they are worse at drafting that position than they are with offensive linemen. Its no wonder they constantly over pay for free agent TEs.

  • I think this makes sense and is a good fit for us. I would have preferred a 2 or 3 year deal. This makes him the 17th highest paid TE in the league and on the similar pay to Cameron Brate, Nick Boyle, Tyler Kroft, CJ Uzomah, Eric Ebron Blake Jarwin.

    Good Size - 6'3" 240lbs
    Good Age - 26
    Good Metrics - 4.6 (40) and 37.5 (vert)
    Familiar with New Coordinators system

    As a former 2nd round pick he is really just starting to show his full potential.
    Has shown improvement each season with increased catches and yards.

  • Is it just me but I’ve been seeing that Everett is decent in his blocking fits. To me it seems Everett is a step-up from getting a 36 year old Greg Olsen or Jimmy Graham as an in-line blocker. Plus, It helps Waldron having someone he’s familiar with to help transition the offense forward . I don’t know if 6 mil is considered an overpay when you have some TEs signing for 10-15 mil apy in this current market. It’s a solid signing and one many thought would happen.

    For me Everett is much more warranted, has much more of a higher ceiling, and perhaps much more guaranteed success to be more impactful on his 1 for 6 than Olsen was on his 1 for 7. Everett can be your seam breaker/crosser trump card while Dissly can be utilized as more of your RZ threat with Parkinson backing both roles.

  • I think the signing was a decent move. Expensive? Well that relative, given the cap situation it was costly, however compared to what the Patriots paid Jonnu Smith it's a deal. What makes it frustrating is the needs at OL and DL and no clear path to fix those this season thus far. Think most folks feel the line on both sides should be addressed first and I think the Seahawks are bidding their time because of all the cash thrown at linemen early on. Look at what the 49ers gave Trent Williams, kind of obscene and risky as heck.
