Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today - Wednesday, November 14 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Lockett Among Nominees For 2018 Sportsmanship Award

Receiver Tyler Lockett is the Seahawks' nominee for the fifth annual Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award, the NFL announced. For the honor, each of the league's 32 teams selected one of its players who best exemplifies outstanding sportsmanship on the field, including fair play, respect for the game and opponents, and integrity in competition.

The winner of the award, named after the late founding owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Art Rooney, Sr., will be announced on Saturday, February 2, 2019, the night before Super Bowl LIII. The decision will be made by current NFL players, who will make their selection based off a group of eight finalists that includes four players from the AFC and four from the NFC. Finalists will be chosen by a panel of former players from the NFL Legends Community and will be listed on this year's Pro Bowl ballot when players vote on December 14 (players can't vote for someone on their own team).

A $25,000 donation to a charity of the winner's choice will be made from the NFL Foundation and the 2018 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award winner will also receive a trophy that represents "the important role that sportsmanship plays in the game and how NFL players that demonstrate integrity and honor on the field serve as role models for players at all levels."

Since the award's inception, winners include Arizona Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald (2014), Oakland Raiders cornerback Charles Woodson (2015), Indianapolis Colts running back Frank Gore (2016), and Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly (2017).

A complete list of this year's nominees can be found right here.
