Do Seahawks need a third receiver?
So the Seahawks are looking good so far. But how important is it to have a good third receiver? Whether that be another wideout, a tight end or a receiving back.
Adding the third receiver (bracketed) into the mix produces the following top ten:
- Minnesota (Irv Smith)
- Atlanta (Gage)
- Kansas City (Kelce)
- Tampa Bay (Gronkowski)
- San Francisco (Kittle)
- Buffalo (Sanders)
- Seattle (Everett)
- Carolina (McCaffrey)
- Washington (Logan Thomas)
- Miami (Gesicki)
Only half of this list made the playoffs last season, whilst three of the final four fill positions 3,4 & 6 in the list. Green Bay dropped to twelfth in this list. So ultimately their receiver does not make a great deal of difference to a trams chances of success.
Although seven of the teams in the top ten above have a tight end as their third receiving option, emphasizing the import of a good receiving tight end in the modern game. So despite dropping from 3 to 7 in this list, Seattle’s addition of Gerald Everett could be crucial to the team’s success in 2021.
