Rookie Wide Receiver Tyler Lockett Sets Seahawks Record with 105-Yard Kick Return Touchdown

The Seahawks wideout topped Leon Washington's 101-yard kickoff return touchdown from 2010.

It didn't take long for the Seahawks to find the end zone in the second half of their home-opener against the Chicago Bears.

Rookie wideout Tyler Lockett returned the third-quarter-opening kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown to help give Seattle a 13-0 lead at CenturyLink Field. The play set a record for the longest kick return in club history, topping former Seahawks running back Leon Washington's 101-yard kick return for a touchdown that came back on Sept. 26, 2010 against the San Diego Chargers.

With his 57-yard punt return for a touchdown against the St. Louis Rams in Week 1 and his score in Week 3 against the Bears, Lockett becomes the first Seahawks player to have punt and kick returns for touchdowns in the same season since Nate Burleson did it in 2007.
