The Facts: On Christmas Eve 2016, Lockett suffered a gruesome broken fibula and tibia. Four months later, the 24-year-old speedster is completely confident he'll be ready for the start of the 2017 season. "I mean I'm sure I'll be ready," Lockett said last week. "If I don't it will be news to me like it's news to you.'
Diehards Line: When Lockett will return to the practice field remains a question. The receiver said he believes training camp in August is a realistic target. Whatever the case, expect the Seahawks to play it slow with Lockett's return. Even if he's ready by training camp, Seattle could hold him out of preseason games to ensure he's ready Week 1. If Lockett returns to form, the speedster provides the Seahawks a field-stretching element that complements Doug Baldwin. With Paul Richardson's emergence after Lockett's injury, Seattle enters 2017 with a potentially deep receiver corps for Russell Wilson to exploit -- if he can get any protection this season.
