Seattle appears to be in a full rebuild mode after their trade of Russell Wilson and release of Bobby Wagner. Ever since the trade was announced there have been multiple reports of Tyler Lockett being on the trading block. With Green Bay’s wide receiver position currently up in the air, Lockett may be an affordable splash move.
Per source, following the #Seahawks trading Russell Wilson to the #Broncos, they are also open for business on wide receiver Tyler Lockett. With plenty of teams needing WR help, he's a name to keep a close eye on.

Current Green Bay Wide Receivers:
Green Bay’s 2022 wide receivers may look drastically different than 2021:
- Davante Adams: Isn’t going anywhere.
- Randall Cobb: Seems extremely likely he won’t be coming back to Green Bay, has said goodbye on Social Media
- E.Q. St. Brown: Seems extremely likely he won’t be coming back to Green Bay, has said goodbye on Social Media
- Marquez Valdes-Scantling: It has been expressed that there is mutual interest to bring back MVS. He has been the only true deep threat (go route) wide receiver in Green Bay for the last 3-4 years. His inconsistency however begs the questions if Green Bay should bring him back,
- Allen Lazard: Outside of Adams, Lazard has been the most consistent wide receiver over the last few years and it isn’t particularly close. However Lazard and Lockett are completely different types of wide receivers and would compliment each other well. While there has been no official talk of Lazard being resigned, I would be surprised if Green Bay let him walk.
That makes 2 of Green Bay’s top 5 wide receivers likely to return in 2022 (and Lazard isn’t guaranteed). Green Bay will be in the market for a wide receiver this off-season, that is certain. Whether it is one of their own, a trade, free agency, or the draft is yet to be determined.
What does Tyler Lockett Bring to an Offense?
Tyler Lockett would bring an immediate reliable deep threat. Lockett is a big play waiting to happen down after down. He is coming off three straight seasons with 100+ catches and 1,000 yards.

Being that Tyler Lockett is 30 years old his price will be far from a first round draft pick. Plus with Seattle seemingly loading up on youth and draft picks, they may entertain multiple mid round picks in exchange. Tyler Lockett would certainly become the second best wide receiver on the roster a bolster a position that is going into the off-season as a major unknown.
