Free agent WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) "realizes his career might be over."

Lockette has yet to get cleared from November surgery. He played only 112 snaps before going down in Week 8. Even if cleared, 29-year-old Lockette won't be more than a special teams flyer.

Free agent WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) "hopes" to get cleared to resume his career.

In a recent interview, Lockette said his life was in danger following the brutal hit he took from Cowboys S Jeff Heath last November. He is still recovering from surgery. Going on 30, Lockette has already done a lot of bouncing around in his career. He'll likely have a hard time cracking someone's 53-man roster in '16.

Seahawks placed WR Ricardo Lockette (neck) on season-ending injured reserve.

Lockette had surgery last week and was already ruled out for the year. The move opens a spot for Paul Richardson on the active roster. An impending free agent, Lockette appeared in all eight games (113 snaps) and had four special-teams tackles.

Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette (neck surgery, injured reserve) has been released from the hospital.

It's excellent news after Lockette went under the knife on Monday. It appears he's on track for a full recovery. An impending free agent, Lockette turns 30 next May.

Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette needs surgery to repair ligament damage in his neck and is done for the season.

Lockette took a scary hit on an illegal blindside block from Cowboys S Jeff Heath while covering a punt late in the second quarter on Sunday. He was down on the field motionless for several minutes before being taken off on a stretcher. Lockette had full motion and feeling in all his extremities, and the Seahawks said "his prognosis is good." His surgery is scheduled for Monday.

Ricardo Lockette left the Seahawks' Week 8 game against the Cowboys with a concussion after making helmet to helmet contact with Jeff Heath.

The Cowboys safety was flagged 15 yards for an illegal blindside block. The injury occurred while Lockette was covering a punt return late in the second quarter. Lockette lay on the field motionless for quite some time before being taken off on a stretcher. He gave the crowd a slight wave as he left the field. Lockette was taken to the hospital for evaluation. He caught one of two targets for three yards before exiting,

Ricardo Lockette caught both of his targets for 41 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks’ Week 6 loss to the Panthers.

He also threw an incomplete pass. Lockette’s touchdown came on a beautifully executed flea flicker from Russell Wilson. He finished the play with a leaping grab over Panthers safety Kurt Coleman. Including Sunday, Lockette has been targeted just four times in six games this season. He won’t be on the fantasy map Thursday against the 49ers.
Sun, Oct 18, 2015 08:38:00 PM

Seahawks re-signed WR Ricardo Lockette to a one-year, $660,000 contract.

Lockette was only targeted 15 times last season and could see even fewer looks now that Jimmy Graham has become the focal point of Seattle's passing game. Lockette famously botched his route on the Patriots' Super Bowl-clinching interception.
Thu, Mar 12, 2015 09:41:00 AM

Seahawks declined to tender restricted free agent WRs Ricardo Lockette and Bryan Walters.

They didn't deem either worthy of the $1.5 million base salary that comes with the lowest possible RFA tender. Lockette and Walters could return on salaries closer to the league minimum. Lockette secured 3-of-5 targets for 59 yards in Seattle's Super Bowl 49 loss to the Patriots, but failed to run his route with enough aggressiveness on the game's final play. The result was an interception by Malcolm Butler, sealing Seattle's fate.

Seahawks WR Ricardo Lockette secured 3-of-5 targets for 59 yards in Seattle's Super Bowl 49 loss to New England.

Sharing time with Chris Matthews behind Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse, Lockette made a clutch 23-yard catch with under ten seconds left in the second quarter to set up Matthews' game-tying touchdown. Lockette added a 25-yard grab deep down the middle late in the third quarter. Turning 29 in May, Lockette is an unrefined speedster with some special teams value. He is a restricted free agent and may not be tendered by the club.
Sun, Feb 1, 2015 10:46:00 PM

Ricardo Lockette caught one pass for a 39-yard touchdown in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

In the upset of the day, Lockette burned Aqib Talib for the score. It was the 10th catch of his three-year career. Lockette remains a No. 4 or 5 WR for the Seahawks.
Sun, Sep 21, 2014 08:30:00 PM

Ricardo Lockette caught 2-of-3 targets for 38 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's Week 1 win over the Packers.

The touchdown was just the second of Lockette's career, while the catches were only his eighth and ninth. The score came on a "pop pass" option play from Russell Wilson, who faked a handoff before finding Lockette wide open for a 33-yard scamper. Lockette has big-play potential, but won't find any volume in Seattle's run-first offense. He's miles from fantasy relevance.
Fri, Sep 5, 2014 12:32:00 AM

Seahawks promoted WR Ricardo Lockette from the practice squad.

Lockette takes the roster spot vacated by Sidney Rice (torn ACL, injured reserve). Lockette has some long speed but it's never translated to game action.
Wed, Oct 30, 2013 04:14:00 PM

Bears signed WR Ricardo Lockette, RB Harvey Unga, QB Jerrod Johnson, and TE Fendi Onobun to the practice squad.

Lockette spent the summer with the 49ers before being cut ten days ago. He has some long speed, but it's never translated to games. Unga and Onobun were in training camp with the Bears before being part of final cuts.
