Analysis: How Did Seahawks Tight Ends Perform in 2021?

Teaming Gerald Everett up with Will Dissly and Colby Parkinson in a new scheme, Seattle expected its tight end group to be a focal point in the passing game. Unfortunately, for the most part, that never came to fruition due to a number of factors.

Despite entering the 2021 season with championship aspirations, the Seahawks lost five of their first eight games and never fully recovered, finishing in last place in the NFC West with a 7-10 record.

With the arrival of a new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron and his pupil Gerald Everett from the Rams, the Seahawks expected to utilize tight ends more heavily in the passing game. While Everett put up decent numbers in his first season with the team, however, that didn't come to fruition as hoped with quarterback Russell Wilson sidelined for three games due to injury and the offense as a whole unable to get untracked until late in the season.

Looking back at the season in retrospect, how did Seattle's tight ends perform as a group in 2021? And what comes next at the position?
