Good morning, 12s. Here's a look at what's happening today – Wednesday, June 9 – for your Seattle Seahawks.
NFL Network Ranks Seahawks WR Duo Among Best For 2021
Only two teams in the NFL had two wide receivers top 1,000 yards last season: the Seattle Seahawks and the Carolina Panthers. The Seahawks were the only team with two wide receivers to score 10 touchdowns. Simply put, DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett brought their games to a new level in 2020, and it paid off with an NFC West title.
Metcalf followed up a strong rookie season with an even better second act. He totaled 1,303 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns on 83 receptions while earning his first Pro Bowl appearance.
Lockett's sixth season was his best overall, posting a career-high 100 catches and 10 touchdowns. He added 1,054 receiving yards, which was just three yards off his career-high set in 2019.
On Tuesday, NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala appeared on Good Morning Football to rank her top five wide receiver duos for the upcoming season. The Seahawks' duo was fourth on her list, just behind three other 2020 playoff teams' duos. The division-rival Rams were also on the list, just below the Seahawks at No. 5.
Here's a look at Kinkhabwala's full rankings:
"If we're going to talk about quarterbacks and how they make wide receivers (better), then obviously we talk about Russell Wilson's two guys," Kinkhabwala said. "Both of these guys had 1,000 yards a year ago. They both had 10 touchdowns. Metcalf is the big-play wide receiver that every coach in the NFL wants. And then Lockett is just an inside-outside, totally dependable guy all over the field. I feel like this is a pair that is very hard to pick your poison on, which one are you focusing on stopping?"
