Seahawks wideout Tyler Lockett and the rest of Seattle’s wide receiving corps have some adjusting to do this offseason without their usual quarterback under center. Now that Russell Wilson is with the Denver Broncos, Lockett and crew need to get used to Geno Smith, Drew Lock and Jacob Eason tossing balls their way.

Wilson and Lockett played together for seven seasons so the change is noticeable on the field. Lockett was asked about the adjustment period after the team’s OTA practice on Tuesday.

“There’s going to be a lot of differences, I think,” Lockett told reporters. “Just being able to understand football and understanding what we all have in the room and understanding what we are all really good at and what we all need to work on. All those things come into play during OTAs.”

Lockett said this time of the year is when the squad is really able to test limits and the coaches are able to get a good feel before breaking for training camp at the start of summer.

“I think Drew is doing good, I think Geno is doing good, I think Eason is doing good. Whatever happens is going to happen at the end of the day but as a whole, we all just want to make sure that we are doing our part.

“And I think everybody is doing that so far.”

Lockett said he played with two quarterbacks in the rotation at times both in high school and in college at Kansas State so having three different signal-callers throughout the offseason is almost familiar, in a way.

“It always worked out,” Lockett explained. “So I think that it’s something that’s new but it’s something that’s interesting to see when it comes to that competitive nature. Two people, three people being able to compete for a spot.”

Lockett and the rest of us will be eagerly awaiting the outcome of the Seahawks’ quarterback competition this summer.

Seattle has another OTA open to the media on Thursday.
