Gerald Everett News

Signing with Chargers

Everett is signing with the Chargers on Sunday, Aaron Wilson of ProFootballNetwork.com reports.

Analysis: Everett spent the first four seasons of his career with the Rams but signed with Seattle ahead of the 2021 campaign. He appeared in 15 games for the Seahawks and hauled in 48 of 63 targets for 478 yards and four touchdowns while rushing three times for 20 yards. Everett should compete with Donald Parham for targets ahead of the 2022 campaign.

Makes one catch

Everett caught a 20-yard pass on three targets against Arizona on Sunday.

Analysis: Everett could have had a touchdown catch but didn't reel it in, and he was otherwise doomed by lack of opportunity on a day where Russell Wilson attempted only 26 pass attempts. Everett finishes the season with 48 receptions for 478 yards and four touchdowns on 63 targets -- a catch rate of 76.2 percent at 7.6 yards per target, which is quite efficient per-target production. The volume was never really there for Everett in 2021, but that's arguably more due to the incredibly slow pace of the Seattle offense rather than anything in Everett's control. His fantasy prospects for 2022 depend on where he'll play -- he's a free agent after playing on a one-year contract in 2021.

Catches three passes

Everett caught three passes for 36 yards on five targets against Detroit on Sunday.

Analysis: Everett had been on a bit of a surge recently, catching four passes for over 60 yards in each of the two games prior to Sunday, but against Detroit wideout DK Metcalf made more noise than he had in some time, drawing nine targets and scoring three touchdowns. If Metcalf and Tyler Lockett are both producing it might not leave enough of a pie for Everett to post big stats, but the Seahawks will need all of their pass catchers playing sharp to hold their own against the tough Cardinals defense in Week 18.

Scores TD in loss

Everett caught four of five targets for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-24 loss to the Bears.

Analysis: On a snowy day in Seattle, Everett wound up leading the Seahawks in receiving yards as Russell Wilson didn't have much success stretching the field. The tight end's third-quarter TD gave Seattle a 24-14 lead, but the defense faltered in the fourth. Everett is finding some chemistry with Wilson late in his first season with the club, scoring three touchdowns in the last five games, giving him some fantasy appeal in a Week 17 clash with the Lions.

Leading receiver versus former team

Everett caught all four of his targets for 60 yards in Tuesday's 20-10 loss to the Rams.

Analysis: Tyler Lockett was in COVID-19 protocol and sat out Tuesday's game, and Everett was able to capitalize on the extra reps, leading the Seahawks in receiving yards. Everett has had an underwhelming season with 40 receptions for 354 yards and three touchdowns. However, he should have a chance to surpass his career high of 417 receiving yards over the final three games.

Seahawks-Rams moved to Tuesday

Everett and the Seahawks will no longer play the Rams on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

Analysis: Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within the Rams organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, Los Angeles will be able to restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. After Tuesday's game, the Seahawks will face a quick turnaround for Week 16 with a Sunday matchup versus the Bears on Dec. 26.

Dec 17, 2021 1:31 PM EST


Scores third touchdown

Everett caught both of his targets for 15 yards and rushed once for 13 yards in Sunday's 33-13 win over the Texans.

Analysis: Everett (35 snaps) was out-snapped by Will Dissly (39) for the first time since Week 6. Although the Seahawks won by 20 points, the game wasn't actually put away until the fourth quarter, so perhaps Everett saw fewer reps after losing two fumbles in the Week 13 win over the 49ers. Nevertheless, he scored for the third time this season. Everett will continue to be a touchdown-dependant fantasy option against the Rams -- his former team -- next week.

Dec 13, 2021 6:44 AM EST


Notches just seven yards

Everett caught four of six targets for seven yards in Sunday's 30-23 win over the 49ers.

Analysis: Everett wasn't efficient with his targets Sunday. Still, the fifth-year tight end has logged at least 75 percent of the offensive snaps in four straight games while Will Dissly hasn't handled more than 53 percent of the snaps in that stretch. It's clear who the No. 1 tight end is in Seattle. Nevertheless, Everett is averaging just 27.9 yards per game with two total touchdowns this year.

Dec 6, 2021 9:59 AM EST


Scores in defeat

Everett caught five of nine targets for 37 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 17-15 loss to Washington.

Analysis: Everett opened the scoring for Seattle with a six-yard touchdown to end the first quarter, marking his first end-zone trip since Week 1. The tight end then proceeded to lead his team in targets while tying for the most receptions, making for a busy evening. Despite the Seahawks' recent offensive struggles, Everett has now hauled in at least three passes in three straight games, giving him modest individual momentum ahead of Week 13's matchup versus the 49ers.

Makes three catches

Everett caught three passes for 37 yards on four targets against Arizona on Sunday.

Analysis: Everett was Seattle's second-leading producer of receiving yardage behind Tyler Lockett (115), so it was generally a difficult day for the Seahawks passing game. While it reflects well on Everett that he produced efficiently, the volume wasn't enough to make much difference. The Seattle offense hasn't made much room for tight end pass catching functions to this point in the year, and that's without factoring in the workload split between Everett and Will Dissly (one catch for 16 yards on three targets).

Avoids Week 11 designation

Everett (groin) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Though the groin injury prevented Everett from practicing Wednesday and Thursday, the Seahawks were comfortable enough with his health coming out of Friday's session to give him the green light for the Week 11 matchup. At least for one game, Seattle's top tight end was the top beneficiary of Russell Wilson's (finger) return from a four-week absence in last week's 17-0 loss to the Packers. Everett set new season highs in receptions (eight), receiving yards (63) and targets (eight) in that game.

Nov 19, 2021 1:40 PM EST


Another DNP on Thursday

Everett (groin) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: With back-to-back absences to open Week 11 prep, Everett doesn't appear to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's contest against the Cardinals. Fortunately for the fifth-year pro, he has one more session to mix into individual drills (or more) before the Seahawks tab him with a designation. If Everett ends up missing his third game of the season, Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson will cover for him at tight end, while Tyler Mabry and Ryan Izzo would be candidates for elevation from the team's practice squad.

Nov 18, 2021 5:45 PM EST


Tending to groin injury

Everett (groin) was unable to practice Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Analysis: Aside from sitting out Weeks 4 and 5 due to contracting COVID-19, Everett has been healthy this season and earned at least 70 percent of offensive snaps in five of his seven appearances with the Seahawks. The results have been hit or miss on his way to a 22-198-1 line on 25 targets. Everett is coming off season highs in catches (eight) and yards (63) from Sunday's loss at Green Bay, but he now is dealing with a health concern. The fifth-year tight end has a pair of chances remaining this week to return to the practice field.

Nov 17, 2021 5:01 PM EST


Busy in loss

Everett caught eight passes for 63 yards on eight targets against Green Bay on Sunday.

Analysis: Everett wasn't explosive, but he was automatic with his targets and was the sole means of moving the chains for Seattle on Sunday. Part of that was due to the poor play of Russell Wilson (finger) -- DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett were both shut down by Wilson's inaccuracy, and that probably funneled some usage toward Everett. He'll try to keep the momentum going against Arizona in Week 11.

Nov 14, 2021 5:24 PM EST


Two touches in win

Everett caught one of two targets for seven yards and rushed once for minus-5 yards in Sunday's 31-7 win over the Jaguars.

Analysis: Everett out-snapped Will Dissly 44-36 but failed to get involved much on offense. The 2017 second-round picks only produced 77 yards and a touchdown over three games with Russell Wilson (finger) under center, so his lack of production lately likely isn't a factor of Geno Smith. Still, Wilson's possible Week 10 return would raise the ceiling of all Seattle pass-catchers.

Nov 1, 2021 7:40 AM EST


Rings up 23 yards

Everett caught all three of his targets for 11 yards and rushed once for 12 yards in Monday's 13-10 loss to the Saints.

Analysis: The Seahawks leaned heavily on the ground game, rushing the ball 28 times compared to just 22 passing attempts, so Will Dissly out-snapped Everett 40-33. However, Dissly didn't receive a target. Everett has now produced 13 receptions (15 targets) for 128 yards and a touchdown through five games.

Oct 26, 2021 8:23 PM EST


Activated from COVID list

The Seahawks reinstated Everett (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: After landing on the list Sept. 29 and sitting out Week 4 in San Francisco, Everett looked like he might have had a chance to play last Thursday in the Seahawks' loss to the Rams. However, the results of his second consecutive negative COVID-19 test didn't become available in time, resulting in Everett missing his second straight contest. Since Everett likely would have been available to play last week had the Seahawks suited up Sunday, his activation Monday as Seattle resumes practicing comes as little surprise. Seattle's top tight end will return to a new-look offense that is expected to be without Russell Wilson (finger) for at least the next month, leaving veteran journeyman Geno Smith to direct the offense beginning with Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.

Oct 11, 2021 1:42 PM EST


Doesn't meet protocols for return

Everett (illness) tested negative twice for COVID-19 in advance of Thursday's game against the Rams, but the results didn't come through in time for the NFL to approve him to play, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports.

Analysis: Everett needed to test negative twice 24 hours apart to be eligible for activation from the reserve/COVID-19 list. Apparently, he just missed out on doing so and will miss a second consecutive contest as a result. Everett will have plenty of time to get back on the active roster with the Seahawks' next outing on Sunday, Oct. 17 at Pittsburgh. In the meantime, Will Dissly, Colby Parkinson and even Tyler Mabry will handle TE duties for Seattle.

Oct 7, 2021 5:08 PM EST


Not activated for TNF

Everett wasn't activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list in advance of Thursday night's game against the Rams, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: In Everett's continued absence, Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson are in line to head the Seahawks' Week 5 tight end corps. Neither of the two look like high-percentage fantasy plays, however, after making a minimal impact in Seattle's Week 4 win over the 49ers.

Oct 7, 2021 3:00 PM EST


Could return for TNF

Everett (illness) has a chance to play in Thursday's game against the Rams, needing one more negative test for COVID-19, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Analysis: Everett was placed on the COVID list last Wednesday and missed Sunday's win over the 49ers. In his absence, Will Dissly played 82 percent of snaps and Colby Parkinson took 68 percent, though neither did much damage in the passing game. It sounds like the Seahawks are tentatively expecting Everett back for Thursday night, though it wasn't yet official at the conclusion of Wednesday's practice.
