Seahawks waived TE Cooper Helfet with an injury settlement.

Helfet appeared in 24 games over the past two seasons, catching 25 passes. Helfet has value on special teams. He's recovering from a "cracked bone" in his foot. Once he gets back to full health, he'll be worth a flier for TE-desperate teams like the Steelers.

Seahawks TE Cooper Helfet is out indefinitely with a cracked bone in his foot that will require surgery.

Cooper Helfet caught 4-of-6 targets for 42 yards in the Seahawks' Week 17 win over the Cardinals.

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.

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.
