Tyler Lockett Signs Three-Year, $31.8M Extension With Seahawks

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has agreed to a three-year, $31.8m extension that puts him under contract through to the 2021 season, according to NFL Media. He has generally been used as a No. 2/3 receiver over the course of his career, amassing 137 catches for 1,816 yards and nine touchdowns through his first three seasons in Seattle.

In his first three years in the league with the Seahawks, Lockett has proven to be a valuable asset to the passing game as he has provided consistent production.

The Seahawks drafted Lockett, 25, in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He set new franchise records for longest kick return (105), most kick return yards by a rookie (1,231), most punt return yards in a single game (139) and most all-purpose yards in a rookie season (1,915).

He suffered a broken right tibia and fibula in a game against the Cardinals in 2016 but recovered to play in all 16 games last season with 45 receptions for 555 yards and two touchdowns.

Lockett becomes the second potential free agent following the 2018 season who has been re-signed by Seattle this summer, the other being left tackle Duane Brown, who also signed for three more years. That list includes linebacker K.J. Wright, defensive end Earl Thomas, and - under the biggest spotlight this offseason - free safety Earl Thomas.
