Tight end turncoat

As for that team’s passing attack, in his first press conference as a Seahawk, ex-Rams TE Gerald Everett called Waldron an offensive “mastermind.” Even said the presence of Waldron was a deciding factor in his move to Seattle. Methinks the deciding factor was the presence of more Benjamins, not Waldron. It was blatant pandering to the new team, the new fanbase. Ironically, they only signed Everett on a one-year prove-it deal.

Besides, we are gonna throw a penalty flag here for unsportsmanlike conduct: sucking up to the new boss, flagrant foul for excessive brown-nose bootlicking action. If Everett believes his only chance of sticking with the Seahawks is to shower compliments on everyone in his press conferences before he does a single practice? Buyer beware.

How many TD passes did you catch in the red zone last year for the Rams, Everett? Ummm, one. Perhaps there’s a valid reason why the Rams other TE Tyler Higbee caught five (count ’em) five TD passes in the red zone last year? No one’s presence will be missed all that much when all you accounted for was one fantasy-league score the entire season.

But on the bright side, Everett will probably get a lot more playing time up there in the PNW because that other tight end who plays up there by the name of Will Dissly seems to get injured by little more than stiff wind. (or maybe it’s all the artificial faux crowd noise they piped in at Lumen Field last season).
