Depth Chart
It seemed like a curious decision when the Seahawks signed Zach Miller prior to the 2011 season to compete with Carlson for the team’s starting tight end position, especially considering Carlson’s solid production during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. However, Seattle’s decision was validated when Carlson suffered a torn labrum in the preseason and was placed on injured reserve and no other team chose to sign him as a starter when he became a free agent at the end of last season. That left Carlson to sign with Minnesota as a backup to second year player Kyle Rudolph. Add it all up and Carlson is waiver wire material for the upcoming season.

Not the best fit for Arians offense
I'd say it's likely the Cardinals will carry four tight ends on the 53-man roster, but will the fourth be Robert Housler? That all depends on how he plays during training camp. I think he's sitting at No. 4 right now behind John Carlson, Jake Ballard and rookie Troy Niklas. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Housler isn't exactly a good fit for Bruce Arians' scheme. The tight end isn't a high-catch, high yardage position in this offense. Housler led all Cardinal tight ends last season with 39 receptions and 454 yards. For now, Carlson would be considered the be fantasy option of the bunch but there are much better TE2's with upside to choose from.
