Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Friday, June 23 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Tyler Lockett & DK Metcalf Named Seahawks' Best Duo
Having a gamechanger on either side of the ball is ideal for any team, but having a pair of difference-makers is double trouble for opposing teams. Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports breaks down why Seattle wideouts Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf are Seattle’s best duo and a big threat to defenses league-wide.
There were several key factors in determining the best pairs league-wide, for which Kerr stuck to a strict criteria. Duos must play on the same side of the ball (offensively or defensively), can be the same position and can be new teammates (free agents & rookies).
In 2022, both Lockett and Metcalf each recorded 1,000-yard receiving seasons, combining for 174 receptions and 15 touchdowns. While Lockett recorded his fourth-consecutive 1,000-yard campaign to match Legend Steve Largent in the franchise record books, Metcalf's 90 receptions set a new career-high.
Kerr breaks down why Metcalf and Lockett are such a dynamic duo for Seattle.
Tyler Lockett (WR) and DK Metcalf (WR)
Lockett and Metcalf are one of the best wide receiver duos in the NFL, and reliable no matter who is playing quarterback. Lockett recorded his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season in 2022, totaling 84 catches for 1,033 yards and nine touchdowns. He's ninth in the NFL in receptions (339), 11th in yards (4,319) and tied for sixth in touchdowns (35) over the last four seasons.
Metcalf had his second 1,000-yard season of his career, finishing with a career-high 90 catches for 1,048 yards and six touchdowns. Over the last four seasons, Metcalf is 16th in the NFL in receptions (306), 14th in yards (4,218), and tied for sixth in touchdowns (35) with Lockett.
Geno Smith was the Comeback Player of the Year, thanks to the contributions from Lockett and Metcalf. Both players should have more opportunities to get open with Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the fold in 2023.
As year five of Metcalf and Lockett together approaches, it's no longer a secret just how good the pair is together.
