Ricardo Lockette’s wait ended today when the rookie wide receiver was signed off the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
Lockette fills the spot that opened Tuesday when cornerback Ron Parker was placed on injured reserve.
Asked what Lockette’s role would be, coach Pete Carroll smiled and offered, “Fast guy.”
That’s because Lockette won the Division II National Championship in the 200 meters in 2008 while at Fort Valley State.
As for the pecking order at wide receiver, where the team already has Doug Baldwin, Mike Williams, Golden Tate, Ben Obomanu and Deon Butler, Carroll added, “Right now, Ricardo is the next guy up.”
