Analysis and 3 Year Stats for all Tight Ends
Player Change Was Now Date
Dwayne Carswell NR 27 09/06/04
With Chamberlain and Weaver cut, the most likely candidate for stepping into any TE receiving role of note would be Carswell who was converted to a tackle but will likely be shifted back to TE. Chances are best that big TE numbers from the Broncos will finally stop happening.
Byron Chamberlain 15 NR 09/06/04
Perhaps one of the biggest surprises on Black Sunday, Chamberlain was cut by the Broncos.
Jed Weaver 28 NR 09/06/04
Weaver was released by the Broncos in spite of signing a contract in the spring that carried a $400K signing bonus.
Jeremy Stevens 23 16 08/27/04
Stevens was considered the most improved player when training camp closed this year. With the way the Seahawks like to use tight ends, he could prove better than even this ranking.
Ben Troupe 31 40 08/27/04
Troupe has continued to struggle and is unlikely to be a factor until late in the season if even then this year.
Freddie Jones 13 11 08/20/04
With the continuing injury woes for the Cardinals wideouts, Jones should figure in well this year and HC Denny Green says Jones is going to the Pro Bowl. He may not get there, but he gets a bump up with a coach talking big about a tight end.
Jeremy Stevens 34 23 08/16/04
Stevens has finally looked sharp in camp this summer and seems to have finally gained progress and maturity that might meet his expectations. The Seahawks will feature both Mili and Stevens, but the youngster is making definite inroads to being the primary.
Teyo Johnson 22 16 08/16/04
The converted wideout has looked sharp in his second training camp and Norv Turner's offense loves a receiving tight end. And this is the one.
Ituli Mili 16 20 08/16/04
Mili falls from the progress of Stevens this summer.
Randy McMichael 6 5 08/12/04
The loss of the running game in Miami, coupled with the injury to David Boston means that Chris Chambers will have an entourage following him around on most plays. McMichael may be the only Dolphin player that sees better numbers from all that has happened there.
Kellen Winslow Jr 7 6 08/11/04
Finally signed, we can see what all the hype is about. If he turns in half what he thinks he can, he is still a bargain at this slot.
