Good afternoon, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today — Thursday, November 16 — about your Seattle Seahawks.
Tyler Lockett enters Week 11 with an opportunity to rise to No. 2 in the record books in multiple receiving categories.
On Sunday, the 6-3 Seahawks will take on the 3-6 Los Angeles Rams, as they look to avenge a 30-13 Week 1 loss at home. Team Captain and ninth-year wideout Tyler Lockett needs three catches and 27 receiving yards to pass Seahawks Legend Brian Blades for No. 2 All-Time in receptions and receiving yards in franchise history.
Seattle selected the Kansas State receiver and return specialist in the third round of the 2015 draft. Lockett finished his college career as a two-time Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Year, earning All-American honors in 2011 and 2014. In nine seasons spent with Seattle, Lockett has risen to become one of the Seahawks' greats, accumulating 7,594 receiving yards, 58 touchdowns and 579 receptions. Through nine games played, Lockett has caught 46 passes for 494 yards (10.7 YPC) and four touchdowns in 2023. On Wednesday, wideout DK Metcalf discussed what he admires about Lockett's work ethic, as the veteran continues to be a consistent weapon at 31-years-old.
"Just how he works," said Metcalf. "How he gets open, just how he goes about his business. He's a true one-of-one person - I don't think I've ever met anybody quite like Tyler Lockett. Just for him to have the longevity where he's been able to move to second place in franchise history. Hopefully he gets to first place here, next year or in a couple of years. It's just been fun to watch - just how he grows, how he learns, he's just a fun person to watch and just talk to and get to know. So, congratulations to him."
Lockett has plenty in common with No. 1 on the receiving list - fellow Tulsa, Oklahoma native Steve Largent. The Pro Football Hall of Famer sits atop the record books with 819 receptions, 13,089 yards and 100 touchdowns. The pair of Tulsa natives also share the same birthday (September 28). Largent spent his entire 14-season career with Seattle, calling it a career in 1989 at 35-years-old. Time will tell if Lockett will be able to surpass Largent in any of those receiving categories, but the focus this week is squarely on Sunday's Week 11 divisional matchup against the Rams.
