Position need: And holy crap! We have a position mostly filled! Carlson is a sub-elite tight end that is hopefully freed from blocking so dang much. Baker is much like Owens, but able to receive some. Morrah gives Seattle a little depth behind Carlson, and Owens behind Baker - though it seems unlikely Owens sticks with the team. If Seattle is committed to two-tight end sets, it could add another player to back up Baker, but there is no need to speak of.
