Report: Seahawks shopping Sean Locklear

Published on September 5, 2010 by     Seahawks.Com News (Feed)

Remember what happened the last time someone reported a Seahawk starter was being shopped around the league?
T.J. Houshmandzadeh was cut by the Seahawks two days later.

Well, now it’s tackle Sean Locklear, a starter in Seattle the previous five seasons. He is being offered around the league in a trade, according to ESPN’s John Clayton. Not only that, but Clayton expects him to be gone by the time the Seahawks play their first game.

“While it was a nice move to pick up Stacy Andrews from the Eagles for a seventh-round pick, the trade is going to lead to the departure of right tackle Sean Locklear, who, according to multiple sources, is being shopped in a trade and isn’t expected to be around by opening day.”
— John Clayton, ESPN.com

Locklear became a starter in 2005, his second year after being drafted out of North Carolina State.

The Seahawks re-signed him in 2008, and just before the 2009 season, president Tim Ruskell disclosed the deal with Locklear was made with the idea he could be the successor to Walter Jones at left tackle.

Well, that didn’t work out so well last season. Locklear began the season at left tackle with Jones out, but suffered a high ankle sprain in the second game and missed seven games.

After showing great promise in his first year as a starter, he has been inconsistent these past two years as the talent around him on the line deteriorated.

Seattle not only acquired Andrews, but it also traded a late-round pick for Tyler Polumbus, who played right tackle in the exhibition finale.
