ESPN Seahawks reporter Terry Blount believes TE Cooper Helfet is "likely" to make the team.
A fourth-year UDFA out of Duke, Helfet saw his first game action last season, hauling in 12 passes for 185 yards and two touchdowns in 10 games. Helfet does not offer much as a blocker and will not be given many chances in the passing game behind Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson, but he is a special teams asset. Helfet will battle Anthony McCoy for what will likely be one roster spot. Jul 11 - 1:31 PM

Seahawks TE Cooper Helfet caught three passes for 61 yards and one touchdown in Seattle's Week 7 loss at St. Louis.

Helfet, a 25-year-old third-year UDFA out of Duke, got the start at tight end with Zach Miller and Luke Willson hurt. His 61 yards were second-most on the team Sunday, while his six targets were good for third behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse. At 6'4/240, Helfet ran a 4.71 forty with a 32-inch vertical at the Blue Devils' Pro Day in 2012. He's an average athlete with zero fantasy value. Both Miller and Willson should return to the lineup shortly.
