Go behind-the-scenes with rookie wide receiver Tyler Lockett during a day at Seahawks training camp.
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Sept. 3 - about your Seattle Seahawks as the team readies for its preseason finale against the Oakland Raiders at CenturyLink Field.
This Is Training Camp
Rookie wideout Tyler Lockett was kind enough to let team photographer Rod Mar follow him around during a day at Seahawks training camp last month (photo gallery embedded above) and together the pair produced a unique behind-the-scenes look at camp for The Players' Tribune.
Lockett, a standout pass catcher and return specialist at Kansas State who the Seahawks traded up to select in the third round of this year's draft, returned a kickoff 103 yards for a touchdown in the preseason opener, led the team in receiving the next week, and brought back a punt 67 yards for a score this past Saturday. But in his story for The Players' Tribune, Lockett admits he still has plenty to prove.
Lockett writes: "People have been buzzing because I've returned a kickoff and a punt for touchdowns this preseason. That's great and all, but the truth is, those don't count. Until I prove I can do it when it matters — in the regular season and in the playoffs — and do it consistently, I haven't accomplished anything. And even then, I have to continue to work every day towards mastering my craft. The work never stops."
