Commanders pure pass-catcher: Gerald Everett

Gerald Everett is arguably the best get among this year's tight-end free-agent class. The 29-year-old snared 109 catches over the last two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Everett knows how to get open. He's also a prolific chain-mover, having accounted for 54 first downs in a Chargers uniform. His success moving the sticks owes a lot to a knack for amassing yards after the catch.

A four-season run of five-plus yards after catch per reception, per Pro Football Reference, shows Everett's value. Like on this catch and run against the New York Jets, highlighted by Garrett Sisti.

Putting Everett into the same lineup with Zach Ertz, Terry McLaurin, and Jahan Dotson would leave a rookie quarterback spoilt for choice for quality targets. That's an exciting quartet, but the veteran isn't the only receiving tight end the Washington Commanders should consider.
