One interesting thing about Lockett’s contract is how he can make a $1.05 million incentive when he has a season with 55 catches, 800 receiving yards and or eight touchdowns.

So if Russell Wilson can continue to get him the ball like he has been doing, he makes Lockett some extra money on the side.

Lockett’s contract also saves the Seahawks $5.7 million in cap space, according to Jason from Overthecap.com. Essentially dropping his 2021 cap number to $9.25 million from $14.95 million.

Here are some of the Seahawks' offseason moves and the cap hit, thus far.

The offseason isn’t over just yet as linebacker KJ Wright hasn’t been signed yet.

That will be the next domino to fall.
