Lockette has signed his contract tender to remain with the Seahawks, 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

His one-year deal with the team is reportedly worth $660,000, with Lockette now set to reprise his depth wideout/special teams role with the Seahawks. The 28-year-old recorded 11 catches for 195 yards and and two touchdowns in 2014, while adding three catches for 59 yards in the Seahawks' Super Bowl loss to the Patriots.

Lockette played only three offensive plays and saw no targets in Sunday's loss to the Rams.

It's a little surprising that the special-teams speedster wasn't used in the passing game following the trade of Percy Harvin. But the Seahawks also wanted to get rookies Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood involved too. The Seahawks still show no inclination to stretch the field, so until that happens, Lockette won't have much of a role.

Lockette could see more targets after the Seahawks traded Percy Harvin on Friday.

Lockette is a speedster and seems to be a natural choice to stretch the field, but the Seahawks weren't using Harvin to stretch the field anyway. Rookies Paul Richardson and Kevin Norwood likely will be given increased opportunities to prove themselves. Lockette's role will depend on which way the offense evolves.

Lockette caught a 39-yard touchdown in Sunday's overtime win against Denver.

It was Lockette's lone catch, but it was pretty nonetheless. He's primarily a special teams player, although he has scored two touchdowns already this year, showing a nice blend of size and speed.

Lockette did not catch a pass on one target in Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

He carried once for two yards. Expect a similar line most weeks as Lockette is mainly a special teams player.

Lockette caught two passes for 38 yards and a touchdown on three targets in Thursday's season opener against the Packers.

Lockette caught a 33-yard touchdown in the second quarter when Russell Wilson pulled up to pass on what appeared to be a read-option running play. Though uncovered by the defense, Lockette did have to break a tackle to reach the end zone, thus doing his part to score the second touchdown of his career. Despite his strong start to the season, Lockette is unlikely to play more than 10-15 snaps per game in the coming weeks, as he's competing with Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson for playing time behind starters Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin. Kearse, who caught one pass for eight yards on three targets Thursday, is still a better bet to produce than either Lockette or Richardson.
