Seahawks could trade for tight end Mark Andrews

Andrews was banged up quite a bit in 2023 and missed nine games. He also suffered a pretty bad ankle injury. But he is still 28 years old and his contract isn't so ridiculous that another team might not be open to adding him should the Ravens want to trade him. He is also just 28 years old so he could have several good years left to play at a high level if he can show he can overcome the ankle problem.

The good thing for the Seahawks when it comes to Andrews is that new coach Mike Macdonald was the defensive coordinator for the Baltimore Ravens in the two previous seasons so Macdonald should have a good idea of how bad Andrew's injury could be. He would also know Andrews' strengths and weaknesses.

But one thing the entire league knows is how well Andrews can catch the ball and then run once he has it. He has a 67.7 percent catch rate in his career and four seasons where has at least 6 touchdown receptions, including 2023. While he will never again likely reach his career high of 107 receptions and 1,361 yards receiving, Seattle would not need that. The Seahawks just need him to remain dangerous.

Seattle also needs to add another tight end. The team lost Colby Parkinson and Will Dissly in free agency. New Offensive coordinator Ryan Grubb is probably going to have a better idea of how to involve the tight ends than former OC Shane Waldron did. Noah Fant was re-signed this offseason, but recently signed Pharaoh Brown is more of a blocker. Seattle can use another tight end who can catch and run.
