RENTON, Wash. — Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett is an artist, on the field and off. The eight-year veteran has taken up poetry and spoken word performance over the past few years and even authored a book.
“It’s just a way to express yourself without having to have a conversation with somebody," Lockett said. "So people can’t cut you off. They have to listen to what you’re saying. They have to see it from your perspective whether they agree or not.”
As one of the Hawks' most experienced players, Lockett relishes his role as a team leader and looks forward to a new season with the widely revamped and reenergized lineup.
“I’m excited," he said. "I think that we have a great team at hand. I think that we’re seeing it each and every day. We’re understanding new schemes, new philosophies, new offense, new defense. I think that it’s going to be a great season. Honestly, I do.”
Lockett spoke to Evening's Jim Dever as part of our celebration of the new partnership between the team and KING 5, the Seahawk's official local television partner.
