Tyler Lockett A Potential Cap Casualty?

Tuesday, February 20, 12:11 PM

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett could be a salary cap casualty this offseason. He's 31 years old and will carry a $27.8 million cap hit while coming off a sub-1,000-yard season in 2023. Lockett has been in his nine years in Seattle, but ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said it might be a tough dynamic to overcome in 2024. Lockett had 79 receptions on 122 targets for 894 yards and five touchdowns in 17 starts in 2023, but his yardage total was his lowest since his third year in the league in 2017. His contract also has an out clause in it for the 2024 season, so if it looks like he may not be back, he could exercise it and test the free-agent market. If Lockett were to leave, it would be great news for second-year wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba, as he would become the No. 2 behind DK Metcalf.

Nico Collins Open To Extension Talks

Monday, February 26, 2:07 PM

Houston Texans wide receiver Nico Collins made it known that he'd be open to contract-extension talks if the team approached him. After three seasons in the NFL, Collins is now eligible for an extension. He'll be entering the final year of his four-year, $4.871 million rookie contract in 2024, which includes a $902,990 signing bonus and a base salary of $1.324 million this year. "Oh man, I would love that," Collins said when asked about potentially launching early contract discussions. "That would be great." Coming off a breakthrough 2023 campaign in which he caught 80 passes for 1,297 yards and eight touchdowns in 15 regular-season games, Collins will be in high demands in fantasy drafts this fall while paired with impressive young quarterback C.J. Stroud. In two playoff games, Collins had 11 receptions for 164 yards and a touchdown on 17 targets.
