Locke, 28, if a former fifth-round pick by the Vikings in the 2013 NFL Draft. He finished his four-year rookie contract with Minnesota before signing a two-year, $3.45 million deal with $1.25 million in guaranteed with the Colts last year.

Unfortunately, the Colts cut him loose coming out of the preseason and later signed on with the Lions for a short stint.

In 2017, Locke has appeared in five games for the Lions and totaled 1,140 punt yards on 27 attempts (42.22 YPA).
