Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Tuesday, Nov. 9 – for your Seattle Seahawks.

Gerald Everett Joins 710 ESPN Seattle's 'Wyman and Bob'

In his first game as a Seahawk after playing for the division rival Rams, tight end Gerald Everett made an immediate impact.

His first catch went for a first down, and his second was a touchdown. In Week 3, he had a season high five receptions and 54 yards. Despite missing two games after being placed on the Covid/Injury Reserve list, Everett has caught 82.4% of his targets this season, well ahead of his previous career high (66.1). And with Russell Wilson returning, the arrow continues to point up for the fifth-year pro.

On Monday, Everett joined 710 ESPN Seattle's "Wyman and Bob" for their player spotlight interview. In the chat, he discussed how his bye week went, how he's developing chemistry with the offense and what it's like working with Wilson. He also talked about confidence carrying through the bye week, Geno Smith's solid play and if he keeps up with news around the NFL.

On how he feels after the bye week:

"I feel good. It was a good break for me, and I'm sure the rest of the guys would say the same. But I was ready to get back to playing and ready to get this season back on track. … Typically I like to watch some of the games (while on the bye), but for me it's about spending time with family and doing things I can't normally do due to me being far away from home. That's what I did for the most part -- just enjoy family and spend some quality time."

On how his chemistry has developed with the offense:

"It's been great since the day I got here. Even back when I signed, the atmosphere that they surrounded me with (was great). Definitely just put our heads together, just brought me in and made me feel like a Seahawk. I definitely appreciate everything from Pete (Carroll) and Russell (Wilson) and the rest of the guys on the staff and team."

On what jumps out after working with Russell Wilson:

"Russell is a great guy above all else, football or no football. Russell is just a great guy, a great individual, family-oriented man, great leader. That leads him to having a great work ethic and having all the success he's had up to this point in his career. I'm glad to work with him, glad to meet him and glad to call him my friend. I hope we get to work together for a long time."

On how much confidence carries over through the bye week:

"As much as we can, really. We wanted to embrace the feeling of winning again. Just getting that vibe back in the building and getting everybody having uplifting spirits. And that's exactly what happened, it just happened to take the Jaguars to give us that ignition back. We definitely appreciate it and we're going to keep striving for more wins."
