Tyler Lockett Up For Rookie of the Week

Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who celebrated his 23rd birthday yesterday, is up for Rookie of the Week at after returning a kickoff a franchise-record 105 yards for a touchdown in the team's Week 3 win over the Chicago Bears. Lockett's score, which topped the previous club record of 101 yards set by Leon Washington in 2010, ignited a strong second half for Seattle that saw the team put up 20 of its 26 points.

Coupled with his 57-yard punt return for a touchdown in Week 1, this past Sunday's kickoff return made Lockett the first Seahawks player to have punt and kick returns for touchdowns in the same season since Nate Burleson did it in 2007. Lockett also became just the second rookie in NFL history (Tony Green, 1978) to have both punt- and kick-return scores in his team's first three games to start a season.

The Rookie of the Week winner is determined solely by fan vote, and you can submit yours right here.

Nominated alongside Lockett is the Buffalo Bills' Karlos Williams, Philadelphia Eagles' Jordan Hicks, Oakland Raiders' Amari Cooper, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Kwon Alexander. Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston (Week 2) and Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota (Week 1), the first two picks in the 2015 NFL Draft, were winners of's Rookie of the Week honor through the season's first two weeks.
