Wednesday Round-Up: Seahawks Wide Receiver Ricardo Lockette Hands Out Cheeseburgers to Homeless in Dallas

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s, and happy Veterans Day.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Nov. 11 - about your Seattle Seahawks:


On his way home from surgery at Baylor Medical Center in Dallas, Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette stopped to hand out 100 cheeseburgers to homeless people, according to a TMZ report.

TMZ writes that Lockette and his parents were leaving the hospital and passed through an area with a large homeless population. Lockette's father, Earl, confirmed the story to TMZ.

"Some people knew who he was," Earl said. "But this was more about Ricardo seeing people who were in worse shape than him, and wanting to help them however he could.

"It was a beautiful thing," Earl added. "Through helping other people, he helped heal himself. It was therapeutic for everyone."

Lockette's operation stabilized ligament damage in his neck that he suffered during a hit from Cowboys safety Jeff Heath in Seattle's Week 7 win at Arlington's AT&T Stadium. It's an injury that will end Lockette's 2015 season early and one Seattle coach Pete Carroll said will require a "considerable recovery."
