The Seahawks have struggled to find offensive consistency.

The Seahawks are not a high-volume passing offense, but 900 yards and eight touchdowns is a reasonable projection for Lockett, and he has upside.

“I think I’m at a good place right now,” Lockett said. “I think that it also depends on what the trainers want to do, whether they want to speed up my process or whether they want to take it slow. It all depends on what they are looking for me to do, if they want me to do [organized team activities] and minicamp or do they want me to just wait until August so for me I’m just preparing myself for August and if I get to do OTAs and stuff then hey, that’s cool. But I’ve got the end goal in mind, which is getting myself ready for camp.”

Even if the Seattle passing game never becomes a volume-driven attack, the inherent verticality of Lockett’s role remains intriguing.

“You’ve got to see who has the ball,” Lockett said. “It’s hard to see if the quarterback handed it off or not. Sometimes you have a fake hand off, hand off to the running back. So they have to take a split second to see what’s going on. And the end comes down. He doesn’t even know what’s going on because nobody sees the exchange.”

It’s totally understandable if you’d given up on Lockett by now. If you did, you missed his 138 scrimmage yards (75 rushing!) and a touchdown. Maybe it happens again next week on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field, but are you confident enough to put him in your lineup?

Tyler Lockett suffered a gruesome leg injury in Week 16, but the Seattle Seahawks receiver believes he’ll come back even stronger in 2017 china wholesale online.

Wilson’s biggest weapon against the Rams was Tyler Lockett. The second-year wide receiver got the start in place of Jermaine Kearse and caught 7 of 8 targets for 130 yards and a touchdown.

The Seahawks were in three-receiver sets for 68 percent of their snaps in 2016. If healthy, Lockett will have the opportunity to compete for a starting spot opposite Doug Baldwin in 2017.

“The biggest thing is I’ve been going against Richard about 95 percent of the camp, and he’s just made me a better player,” Lockett said. “Going against Richard, I’ve got to be able to move him and get him off at the line, and I can’t use the same stuff every time because he’s a smart defender, so I’ve got to switch some things up.

By just about any statistical measure, his rookie season was a success. Lockett caught 51 balls for 664 yards and six touchdowns. He found the end zone two more times as a returner and earned a Pro Bowl berth.


The Seahawks have struggled to find offensive consistency. Last week in a 38-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers, they turned the ball over six times and scored one offensive touchdown. In a Week 12 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle produced one field goal.

Paul Richardson does appear to have the inside track for the No. 2 wide receiver spot over Tyler Lockett. Lockett was only on the field for 52 percent of the team’s offensive plays, whereas Richardson handled a more full-time 83 percent role.

When Lockett suffered the injury in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals, his teammates were visibly shaken up on the field. But Lockett said he was able to remain calm.

“It hardly bothered me,” he said. “It probably bothered other people. I didn’t feel anything, so people felt the pain more than I did. I was in a good place even when they carried me off.”

Lockett caught 41 balls for 597 yards in 15 games last season, but he was playing at less than 100 percent for much of the year because of a knee injury suffered early in the season.

While NFL cut down week is grim and represents a massive hurdle for hundreds of players attempting to make a roster, it has also brought about a heavy increase in player for player deals or simply player for pick trades before rosters get trimmed. The stock market floor-type frenzy has taken on a smaller scale baseball trade deadline feel, with teams rapidly making one call after another to try and pluck the best soon to be free agents.
