You probably heard this once or twice or several times over the course of this 2018-2019 Seahawks regular season, but Tyler Lockett was stellar this season. No matter the down or distance, the chemistry between Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson and his go-to No. 1 wide receiver Tyler Lockett was nearly unstoppable.

This season was just different for Lockett. Yes he is fast and typically has 3-5 yards on his defender when going deep, but this season, it was his hands that made all the difference for Wilson down field making tough catch after tough catch with defenders in his face.

Wilson and Lockett achieved perfection this season.
According to Seahawks reporter John Boyle: "Over the course of the entire regular season, Wilson completed 80.3 percent of his attempts to Lockett (57 for 71) for 965 yards, giving him a 13.6 yards-per-attempt average, and Wilson did not throw an interception when targeting Lockett. Add those numbers up, along with the 10 touchdowns, and Wilson had a perfect 158.3 passer rating when targeting Lockett."
On Friday, Lockett was guaranteed $3.907 million from the Seahawks.
The former third round, No. 69 overall pick out of Kansas State in the 2015 NFL Draft is a matchup nightmare. Lucky for Seattle, Lockett signed a contract extension in August 2018 for three years worth up to $37.8 million.
Safe to say this duo will be locked in for more seasons to come in Seattle.
