Seahawks re-sign wide receiver Ricardo Lockette

The 28-year-old wideout returns to Seattle for his fifth NFL season.

What wide receiver Ricardo Lockette tweeted back on March 10 was confirmed by the NFL's transaction report on Tuesday.

"Proud to be a Seahawk another year," Lockette wrote on the social network last month.

Lockette, who was as an exclusive rights free agent, has officially re-signed in Seattle for the 2015 season. The 28-year-old wideout will enter his fifth year in the League and fourth overall with the Seahawks after he spent 2012 on the San Francisco 49ers' practice squad.

A former NCAA Division II 200-meter track champion in 2008 while attending Fort Valley State, Lockette has tallied 18 catches for 382 yards and three touchdowns in 26 regular season games with the Seahawks. Most recently, Lockette made three grabs for 59 yards in the team's Super Bowl XLIX loss to the New England Patriots and was the target of Russell Wilson's goal-line pass that resulted in the game-sealing interception by Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler.

On top of his work in the Seahawks receiving corps, Lockette has been a key contributor on special teams the past two seasons, recording seven tackles and two forced fumbles.

Initially signed by the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2011, Lockette bounced on and off the team's practice squad before securing a spot on Seattle's 53-man roster during the 2013 season.
