The Seahawks needed a tight end with the retirement of Greg Olsen. So, of course, Gerald Everett made perfect sense given his relationship with Shane Waldron.

Everett will sign a one-year deal worth $6 million with Seattle, according to multiple reports.

Everett reunites with Waldron, the Seahawks’ offensive coordinator, whom the tight end played for all four seasons he was with the Rams. In 2017, when the Rams made Everett a second-round choice, Waldron was the Rams’ tight ends coach.

Everett played all 16 games with seven starts last season, getting 42 touches for 419 yards and two touchdowns.

He had a career game against the Seahawks in 2019, with seven receptions for a personal-best 136 yards.

Everett ranked 60th on PFT’s list of top 100 free agents.

  1. Same level as Hollister, 63 PFF rank for 2020.
    Another “hope he does better as in previous years” Seahawks acquisition.

  2. Higbee is a little bit better when healthy.

    Sorry to see Gerald go, to the hated Hawks!

  3. Everett made some nice catches but never really took off like Higbee has. I wish him the best of luck.

  4. I have mixed feelings about this one. Glad to see the Hawks get another TE, but frankly they already have two good ones under contract and a 3rd that is a FA they could likely have gotten for less than $6M. The Seahawks need to get Dunlop back plus one other edge rusher AND another o-lineman in addition to Jackson.

  5. D.K. Metcalf, Tyler Lockett, Gerald Everett, and Will Dissly…those four could cause problems in a play action pass situation…not sure who is going to be the starting running back for Seattle next year….

  6. Don’t they have highly touted Disley? Didn’t they draft another highly touted tight end out of Stanford last year whose a red zone target because of his height? The guy that never dropped a pass thrown to him. How about a highly touted offensive lineman.

  7. This could be the underrated signing of the year.

    Really like their targets. It will be interesting to see if they can put together an O-line to make Shannys system work.
