Call him The Forgotten Man, or at least the forgotten tight end. Just a year ago he was seen by many as a potential rising star, and now he’s clearly second fiddle to Jimmy Graham. But the Seahawks have wanted to feature two outstanding TE’s in their offense together for a long time. First they tried pairing John Carlson and Zach Miller, but Carlson kept getting hurt and was ultimately released. Then there were reports last year at the trading deadline that they were trying to deal for a field-stretching TE and inquired on Julius Thomas, Coby Fleener and Jordan Cameron. Now they have Graham AND Willson, and with opposing defenses keying so much on #88, Willson will get some big-play opportunities.
