Seahawks re-sign tight end Will Dissly to three-year deal

The Seattle Seahawks have re-signed tight end Will Dissly to a three-year, $24 million deal, Tom Pelissero reports.

What It Means:

It's a fairly surprising move after the team acquired Noah Fant from the Denver Broncos in their most recent trade, though the Seahawks did utilize 12-personnel (when the team uses two tight ends on an offensive snap) at the sixth-highest rate in the league last year (26% of snaps). Brutal injuries cut Dissly's first two seasons short, but he has been healthy enough to play in 31 games over the past two seasons.

Dissly has caught 76 passes for 900 yards and 9 scores in his four seasons and has graded out well in PFF's blocking grades since entering the league (especially in pass blocking). Dissly has not been a reliable tight end for fantasy but should remain a consistent piece of Seattle's plans on offense for the 2022 season.
