  • Stephen Sullivan: Heads to waivers

    Sullivan was waived by the Panthers on Tuesday, Darin Gantt of the team's official site reports.

    Sullivan spent most of the 2020 season with the Seahawks' practice squad, suiting up in just one game. Though the LSU product is listed as a tight end, he has tried switching to defensive end in the past and could experiment on the practice squad again.

  • Panthers' Stephen Sullivan: Off COVID-19 list

    The Panthers activated Sullivan (undisclosed) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday, David Newton of ESPN.com reports.

    Sullivan can attend team activities now that he's fully cleared the league's COVID protocols. The 2020 seventh-round pick, who appeared in one game with the Seahawks as a rookie, is vying for a depth role with the Panthers.

  • Panthers' Stephen Sullivan: Links up with Carolina

    The Panthers signed Sullivan (abdomen) to a reserve/future contract Wednesday, Will Bryan of the team's official site reports.

    As a rookie with Seattle this past season, Sullivan only appeared in one game a Week 8 contest against the 49ers in which he played one snap on special teams. The 2020 seventh-round pick should at least now be fully recovered from his November sports hernia surgery, but he'll be looking to impress with a new organization heading into the 2021 campaign.

  • Stephen Sullivan: Goes under knife

    Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Sullivan underwent sports hernia surgery and will miss at least three weeks, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    Sullivan, a practice squad member for Seattle, was practicing both as a tight end and a defensive end prior to this injury. Carroll relayed that the rookie out of LSU will focus on tight end once he's healthy again.

  • Stephen Sullivan: Out with injury

    Sullivan (undisclosed) was placed on the Seahawks' practice squad injured list Monday, Logan Reardon of the team's official site reports.

    The 23-year-old only appearance of the season came Week 8 against the 49ers, and he had one tackle in 22 defensive snaps. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but Sullivan will be unavailable for the next few weeks.

  • Seahawks' Stephen Sullivan: Bumps to active roster

    The Seahawks elevated Sullivan from the practice squad Saturday, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    Sullivan played wide receiver in college, but the Seahawks drafted him in the seventh round with the hopes of converting him to tight end. That didn't pan out, and he's been taking reps at defensive end on the practice squad. The Seahawks already have five other healthy tight ends on the active roster, so Sullivan could see a bulk of his usage on defense if he indeed gets in the game.

  • Stephen Sullivan: Unable to lock down roster spot

    Sullivan was waived by the Seahawks on Saturday, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    The Seahawks selected Sullivan in the seventh round of April's draft with hopes that the 6-foot-5, 245-pound wide receiver could be converted to tight end. However, the LSU product couldn't effectively make the switch, so the Seahawks opted to keep four established tight ends. If Sullivan clears waivers, expect the Seahawks to continue to develop him on the practice squad.

  • Seahawks' Stephen Sullivan: Could play tight end

    Coach Pete Carroll expects Sullivan to start off as a tight end, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    The Seahawks list Sullivan as a wide receiver on their roster but apparently intend to test him out at tight end once they're able to practice. The seventh-round pick was a wideout during his sophomore and junior seasons at LSU, catching 34 passes for 582 yards and three touchdowns before lagging to a 12-130-0 receiving line as a tight end during his senior campaign. At 6-foot-5, 248 pounds with 4.66 speed, Sullivan looks like a TE more so than a WR, but he could still play the latter position if he were to drop some weight. It'll be tough for him to earn a roster spot as a tight end in Seattle, where the depth chart already holds Greg Olsen, Will Dissly (Achilles), Jacob Hollister, Luke Willson and rookie fourth-round pick Colby Parkinson.

  • Seahawks' Stephen Sullivan: Likely to start career at receiver

    The Seahawks listed Sullivan as a receiver after selecting him in the seventh round of last week's draft and are expected to have him begin his career at that position, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    The 6-foot-5, 248-pound Sullivan played wideout at LSU during most of his time in college, but he spent most of his senior season at tight end, recording 12 receptions for 130 yards. While he may need to drop some weight if the Seahawks are serious about using him at receiver, Sullivan should at least have a better path to making the roster at that position than at tight end. Seattle already boasts four fairly established tight ends in Greg Olsen, Will Dissly, Jacob Hollister and Luke Willson and added another tight end through the draft in fourth-round pick Colby Parkinson, so Sullivan likely wouldn't have found himself any higher than fifth or sixth in the pecking order.

  • Seahawks' Stephen Sullivan: Scooped by Seattle

    The Seahawks selected Sullivan in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 251st overall.

    Seattle traded back into the draft to nab Sullivan out of LSU, making him the second tight end selected by the club on Day 3 of the draft, joining Colby Parkinson out of Stanford. It was surprising to see Sullivan get drafted before LSU teammate Thaddeus Moss, but Sullivan's profile is intriguing. He's 6-foot-5 and 248 pounds with 35.38-inch arms, and with his 123-inch broad jump and 36.5-inch vertical, Sullivan has a rare catch radius. His production lagged at LSU, as he never recorded more than 363 receiving yards in a season. Sullivan started out as a receiver before moving to tight end, so he's still a project in terms of learning the position. Still, his physical traits make him worthy of a late-round flier.
