The Seattle Seahawks wrapped up their losing year with a win Sunday afternoon against the Cardinals in Arizona. After returning home, coach Pete Carroll addressed the media for the final time this season. One of the questions he was asked was about the progression of rookie wide receiver, Dee Eskridge.

“Without hesitation, he’s going to be a really impactful player, I don’t have any hesitation in saying that,” Carroll told reporters. “He has so much going for him, he’s such a talented kid, a good worker, and all of that, when we come back around, it’s going to look so much different to him.”

Eskridge got a late start to his rookie campaign after sustaining a concussion in the season opener and sitting out the first half of the year. He finished 2021 with 10 receptions for 64 yards and a touchdown.

“The jump that guys make from year one to year two is the most significant jump for the most part,” Carroll explained. “Dee Eskridge is going to make a huge jump and be a very impactful player. We will get him involved in the kicking game more so, we worked with him all year on that, but we weren’t quite ready to feature his opportunity there.

“He can run it, he can catch it, he can block, and he has a great work ethic, so there is nothing holding him back.”
