2015 Outlook
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 teamís starting tight end position, especially considering Carlsonís solid production during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. However, Seattleís 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.

News From The Past 90 Days
TE John Carlson calls it a career     -- Tue May 5 1:20 pm --

Seven-year veteran had a history of concussions
Tight end leaves the game after one season in Arizona and seven NFL seasons. John Carlson signed as a free agent before the 2014 season. Itís the second straight year the Cardinals have lost a tight end to retirement. Last year in the middle of training camp, Jake Ballard, whose knees could no longer take the pounding of the game, called it a career. (

FF Today's Take: With Carlson's retirement, Troy Niklas becomes the favorite to lead the team in receiving from the tight end position with Darren Fells filling a secondary role. However, the Cardinals don't feature the tight end in their offense and as a result, Niklas will have very little fantasy value in 2015.
