  • Waldron the #1 reason he signed with Seattle? Well duh. I'm sure they are buddies. "The element of surprise"? Yeah, i'll be surprised if he even has the weak numbers he had last season.

    Oh well, they cant draft one so I suppose they have to pick one up every couple of years.

    If you must be a pessimist, why don't you root for the Mariners? Learn what REAL suffering is.

  • After reading the .com content, it’s hard not to like Everett as a person, he seems really grounded, and understands his opportunity to really establish himself as a premier TE now that he’s out of the shadow of Tyler Higbee.

    I know people want to see a name WR take over WR3 but I think as is in a Waldron/McVay passing scheme Wilson options will look like this:

    1a, b) WR Lockett, WR Metcalf
    3a, b) TE Everett, RB Carson
    5.) TE Dissly
    6.) WR Swain
    7.) RB Penny
    8.) RB Dallas

    Lockett and Metcalf are as elite duo you’ll find in this league
    Everett is capable of moving out wide or inside as a slot, his potential a big time chess piece that can force mismatches whether as a receiver or blocker is a welcoming addition to an offense not trying to be stagnant and predictable.
    Carson took big steps as receiver and now is under an OC that prominently schemes it’s RB open into space.
    Dissly can be a ninja chain-mover/RZ threat.
    Swain has looked more promising than any of the WRs Seahawks have drafted in Rounds 4-7 than maybe Moore.

    And a lot of these guys have YAC potential whether it’s through finesse or physicality or both.

  • Dude has 8.5" hand, and never overwhelmed except for one game against the Hawks while played for a offense genius.

    Is he a good blocker?

  • TE Gerald Everett may not be the end blocker the Seahawks already have in Will Dissly. But, he likely brings a versatility and enabling improvisation to the tight end position. It may prove to be somewhat analogous to what Tyler Lockett brings to the wide receiver group. Teams need complementary personnel who offer a mix of skills to successfully match up well in week to week contests.

    P.S. I thought Everett's press conference offered useful insight into his mental orientation. For me, it provided a good indication that he will likely fit in quickly.

    EDIT: There remains a massive systemic bias against players with small hands. But not so with John Schneider. Tyler Lockett's 8 3/8-inch hands pretty much ended the myth of hand size as a stand alone predictor of success in Seattle.

    Smaller hands can be stronger hands also, the thing is it really isn't about catching but securing. Remember these guys have been using those same hands their whole life, larger hands can encompass more of the ball when you put it away, yes longer fingers can act like a web so to speak, but they also may not be as strong in holding and gripping a pass. How many WR get broken fingers. If that extra inch is a pass going away doubtful that that last knuckle is going to be able to control it.

    I am willing to bet Steve Largent didn't have hands that were excess of 9 inches also. With no gloves at that.
