After suffering a serious neck injury last season, Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette will announce his retirement today.
In Week 8 against the Dallas Cowboys, Lockette was covering a punt when he got hit by safety Jeff Heath. Lockette suffered a concussion, along with disk and ligament damage in his neck.
Lockette was a standout player on special teams and a weapon used as well in the passing game. The announcement is a big blow to Seattle.
It's sad to see how many players as of late have retired from Football due to serious injuries. I'm sure there is some way we can make the game more safe.
