Seahawks, TE Gerald Everett Agree To Deal

Gerald Everett will stay in the NFC West. The four-year Rams tight end agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets. The deal is worth $7MM, including $6MM guaranteed (per Rapoport on Twitter).

There were some high hopes for Everett when he was selected in the second round of the 2017 draft, but he’s yet to put together a standout NFL season. 2020 was arguably a career year for the 26-year-old, but he still only finished with 41 receptions for 417 yards and one touchdown (plus the first rushing touchdown of his career).

It seemed clear that his stint with the Rams was coming to a close when the organization inked fellow tight end Tyler Higbee to an extension. Everett was also mentioned as a potential trade candidate towards the beginning of the 2020 season.

He will now join a Seahawks team that has been searching for tight end stability for a bit now. Seattle relied on the trio of Greg Olsen, Jacob Hollister, and Will Dissly in 2020, with that grouping combining for 73 receptions, 709 yards, and six touchdowns. Olsen has since announced his retirement, opening a spot on the depth chart.

    Seems kinda low, Everett has huge upside. Would have thought 3/4 years at 3/4 million per season

    ‘hawks are in for a long year. Russ trade speculation won’t go away, & they still refuse to build him a OL. I’m guessing around a 500 season with big changes next season.

      That’s laughable. They will win a minimum of 10 games as they stand now. Love Shaq but no way was he worth what Jacksonville gave him and he’s replaceable with what they already have on the roster. They upgrade at center which honestly won’t be that hard and a few other pieces they will win at least 12. They still have the best QB in the division, by a long, long ways.

        They very well could win 10 games (assuming 16 game schedule) but assuming that’s their floor is just wrong. The franchise is headed off a cliff and they will get there a lot faster if Russ finally wants out. Gap between them and the Rams is very big. Seattle is a .500 team as it stands right now.

    If they pay for 4net instead of Chris Carson then yes……they are doomed to mediocrity
