The Seattle Seahawks fourth round pick Colby Parkinson suffered an injury similar to Deebo Samuel and will be forced to miss time to start the year. The Seahawks are in an interesting position because they have a number of starting caliber tight ends on the roster like Will Dissly and Greg Olsen, however both have injury concerns that may force the front office to add some more depth.
The tight end position is one of the deeper groups for the Bills with Dawson Knox, Tyler Kroft, Tommy Sweeney, Lee Smith and Jason Croom. A trade for Tyler Kroft would make sense but Kroft has had his own injury history and isn’t the most durable.
If the Buffalo Bills want to go into the season with Knox as their starter, Kroft as the veteran and Lee Smith as the blocking specialist, the Seahawks could be interested in a player like Tommy Sweeney.
The former seventh round pick saw extended playing time during the preseason after Tyler Kroft and Dawson Knox were forced to miss time due to injuries. He finished the year with 8 receptions for 114 yards and could be a good depth option for the Seahawks.
