The Seattle Seahawks have locked up one of their young weapons by giving him a new shiny deal. As NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo first revealed, wide receiver/returner Tyler Lockett has agreed to a three-year contract extension worth $31.8 million in base salary and $20 million in guarantees.
As you can see, the max value of the deal is worth $37.8 million, which includes bonuses likely performance-based incentives. Purely on the base value of the contract, the $10.6 million annually would make Lockett the No. 21 highest-paid wideout in the league, just behind teammate Doug Baldwin, who makes $11.5 million per year, according to Spotrac.
