Bears Agree With Gerald Everett On Tuesday

Tuesday, March 12, 2:55 PM

The Chicago Bears have agreed to undisclosed terms with veteran free-agent tight end Gerald Everett on Tuesday, according to a source. Everett is heading into his age-30 season in 2024 and is coming off a year in which he caught a modest 51 passes on 70 targets for 411 receiving yards and three touchdowns in his second season with the Los Angeles Chargers in 15 games (12 starts). With the move to Chicago, where he's expected to play second fiddle to Cole Kmet, Everett can no longer be considered in the TE1 grouping in fantasy. In his seven-year career, Everett has never had more than 58 receptions, 478 yards or four touchdowns in a single season. There's basically no upside here for fantasy managers, especially with Chicago expected to be using a rookie quarterback in 2024.

Isaiah Likely Working To Become "Chess Piece" On Offense

Monday, June 24, 2:53 PM

Baltimore Ravens tight end Isaiah Likely said he's focused on learning all of the receiving positions in Year 2 of offensive coordinator Todd Monken's scheme. "It's being a chess piece, being anywhere 'Monk' needs me to be in this offense -; whether it's in the slot, in-line, in the backfield, split out wide by myself," Likely said. "The more you know, the more you can stay on the field." The Ravens already have All-Pro tight end Mark Andrews, but the team wants to get both Andrews and Likely on the field more at the same time in 2024. In eight games after Likely stepped in for the injured Andrews last year, he caught 25 passes for 372 yards and six touchdowns. With an expanded role in 2024, Likely could be a TE2 in fantasy, but his ceiling will remain limited as long as Andrews stays healthy.
