Gerald Everett Bio

Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Gerald Everett began his football career as a senior at Columbia High School in Decatur, Georgia after playing three seasons of high school basketball. He attended Community College for two seasons prior to transferring to University of Alabama at Birmingham. After one season playing tight end for the Blazers, Everett transferred to South Alabama in 2015 where he broke out and led the team in several college stats such as receiving yards, receptions, and touchdowns. Everett continued his collegiate growth as a tight end in 2016 posting a career-high 49 receptions and 717 receiving yards which led to Senior Bowl invite.

At the NFL Combine, Gerald Everett ran a 4.62 second 40 time and showcased his elite athleticism posting a 120.1 SPARQ-X score and impressive 10.22 Catch Radius. He was drafted in the second round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Los Angeles Rams becoming the first player drafted in South Alabama history. Despite his day two draft capital, Everett never saw starter snaps for the Rams topping out at a 56.2% snap share in 2019 and running only 270 routes in 2020. Prior to the 2021 season, Everett signed a one-year contract with the Seattle Seahawks. In Seattle, he went onto have his best fantasy season posting career highs with a 15% target share, 321 routes run, and 342 Air Yards. Unfortunately, Everett’s best fantasy season saw him average only 7.9 fantasy points per game.

2021 was Gerald Everett’s most utilized season in the NFL. 2022 could eclipse that mark, however, after the Los Angeles Chargers signed him to a two-year $12 million contract that inked him $8 million in guaranteed money. With Jared Cook on the way out, a starting gig in a Justin Herbert-led offense is Everett's for the taking. He will be a popular tight end target in 2022, or at least should be.
