Seahawks stay in house to replace Rice

Lockette AP

The Seahawks likely had an inkling before Tuesday’s trade deadline that receiver Sidney Rice was done for the year.  But in lieu of making a trade for a wideout or bringing back, say, an aging wideout known widely by his initials who was in camp last season, the Seahawks have decided to stay in house to replace Rice.

The team announced that Ricardo Lockette has been bumped up from the practice squad to the 53-man roster, and that Rice has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Receiver Josh Lenz has taken Lockette’s place on the practice squad.

Lockette got his career started with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent in 2011.  He appeared in a pair of regular season games that year, notching two receptions for 105 yards, including a 61-yard touchdown.

Cut before the 2012 season, Lockette spent all of 2012 on the 49ers’ practice squad, establishing a close friendship with quarterback Colin Kaepernick.  But Lockette was cut by the 49ers in August, and he spent September and most of October on Chicago’s practice squad.

Dumped by the Bears on October 21, the Seahawks brought Lockette back to the practice squad the next day.  Eight days later, he’s back on the 53-man roster.

Lockette officially rejoins the Seahawks on the same day the 49ers waived receiver Marlon Moore, an undrafted free agent in 2013.

It’s not known whether Kaepernick demands an explanation.

    This might have been a good article to mention the status of Percy Harvin.

    Yep, the best is yet to come!

    As a 49ers fan, I hope both teams are able to get healthy for the late game matchup. It would suck if either side was dealing with serious injuries when that game came around

    Marlon Moore was an UDFA in 2010 with Miami. Spent the past 3 seasons with Miami prior to signing with SF.

    Hopefully WR Ricardo (Rocket) Lockette can stretch the field for the Hawks.

    By the way, do you know what the Redskins, Jets, Rams, Giants, Vikings, and Colts have in common?

    They all have more PED violations than Seattle for the 2013 year! Look it up!
