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 was brought back on October 22, a day after beign dumped by the Bears.
