Tyler Lockett was born on September 28, 1992 to the former NFL wide receiver Kevin Lockett. So the talent on the gridiron runs in his blood.

A phenomenal collegiate career got him selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2015 NFL Draft. Details of his rookie contract are not available.
As Lockett moved from a rookie to a player with amazing professional stats, the Seahawks saw a bankable athlete in him. So in August 2018, they signed a three-year contract extension with him.
The contract is worth a whopping $31.8 million and would keep him with the team until 2022. A $9.0 million signing bonus was part of the contract. Along with a guaranteed $14.9 million, he has an increasing salary until 2022.
