Seahawks Place WR Tyler Lockett On Injured Reserve, Promote WR Kasen Williams

The Seattle Seahawks announced that they’ve placed WR Tyler Lockett on injured reserve and promoted WR Kasen Williams to their active roster.

Lockett, 24, is a former third-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2015. He’s in the second year of his four-year, $3.318 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $525,000 and $615,000 over the next two years.

In 2016, Lockett had caught 41 passes for 597 yards receiving to go along with six rushing attempts for 114 yards and two total touchdowns. He also contributed 606 kick return yards and another 243 punt return yards over the course of 15 games.

Williams, 24, signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Washington back in May of last year. Seattle, unfortunately, decided to cut him coming out of the preseason but later signed him to the active roster once clearing waivers.

The team promoted him to their active roster late in 2015 for the final two weeks of the season. The Seahawks once again made him one of their final roster cuts back in September and signed him to their practice squad.

In 2015, Williams appeared in two games for the Seahawks and recorded one reception for eight receiving yards, while also having one rushing attempt for five yards.
