As NFL training camps and OTAs ramp up this summer, there's a major question still surrounding the Seattle Seahawks' current roster. That stems from the tight end position, which was left with a number of question marks following Greg Olsen's retirement.
Even with Olsen, although he was nearing the end of his Hall of Fame career, the tight end unit struggled for Seattle. No TE on Seattle's 2020 roster eclipsed 260+ receiving yards last season while the group combined for just six touchdowns. By comparison, Darren Waller of the Las Vegas Raiders caught 9 touchdowns and 1,196 receiving yards last season.
Heading into camp, the Seahawks recently added another depth piece to the roster with the addition of Cam Sutton, a 2020 undrafted free agent from Fresno State. This is in addition to the signing of Gerald Everett, as the 15th-highest-paid TE in the league.
Still, there's a lot of questions about who will earn the most snaps. With that in mind, check out the Seahawks' updated TE depth chart for 2021.
Seahawks TE Depth Chart 2021
1. Will Dissly
Will Dissly enters Seahawks camp as the most accomplished returning member of the tight end corps. Still, it's a small sample size. Dissly caught 24 passes for 2 touchdowns and 251 yards a season ago. He caught better than 82% of his targets in these 12 starts, and has an opportunity to take over the No. 1 spot this season.
2. Gerald Everett
Gerald Everett offers the biggest competition to Dissly for the No. 1 TE spot. The Seahawks signed Everett to a one-year, $6 million deal this offseason. He saw action in all 16 games for the Los Angeles Rams in 2020, catching 41 receptions for 417 yards and 1 touchdown. It should be an entertaining competition between Everett and Dissly this summer.
