Wyman: Why Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett’s 69-yard TD catch was so impressive
Much of the attention after the Seahawks’ 28-16 win over the Colts in Week 1 of the NFL season was given to new offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, but if there’s any one player who shined the most in Seattle’s new offense – quarterback Russell Wilson notwithstanding – it was Tyler Lockett.
The veteran wide receiver and franchise record-holder for most receptions in a season got off to a stellar start Sunday, hauling in four catches for 100 yards, including two touchdowns. Both of Lockett’s touchdowns were highlight reel-worthy, but it was the second – a 69-yarder on a long bomb from Wilson – that really turned former NFL linebacker Dave Wyman’s head.
