Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett named to All-Pro second team

Despite being hampered and eventually completely hindered by injury in 2016, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett was recognized on Friday by the Associated Press.

The speedster was named to the All-Pro team for the second consecutive year, as a return man, but this time, only managed a second-team selection. He made the first team at the same position in 2015.

The feat is impressive considering Lockett dealt with a severe knee sprain for the first half of the season and then missed the last game and half with a broken leg. As a return man, Lockett didn't log a kick or punt return touchdown. However, he did manage 243 yards on 29 punt returns and 606 yards on 23 kick returns.

Lockett season, though over, now enjoys some award recognition.
