Sunday links — Tight ends come to the fore, and more

It’s been obvious since about five minutes into spring practice that the tight end position is going to look a little different this year with the addition of Austin Seferian-Jenkins and the return of Michael Hartvigson.

I wrote about that for today’s paper, including some comments from UW coach Steve Sarkisian that make it clear that while the Huskies didn’t use the the tight end much last year, it wasn’t by choice. Instead, UW simply didn’t have the personnel last year it needed to pull off a lot of the tight end package of its playbook.

That shouldn’t be an issue this year.
