Another award for Tyler Lockett: This time, it's special teams player of the month

SEATTLE – The awards just keep coming for Tyler Lockett.

A day after he was named the NFC’s special teams player of the week, the Seattle Seahawks rookie was named NFC special teams player of the month for December and January.

Over the last five games of the season, Lockett had 244 yards on nine kickoff returns and 183 yards on 11 punt returns. That includes his Seahawks record 139 punt-return yards in the team’s game against Arizona on Sunday, in which he became the first player in NFL history to have three punt returns of more than 30 yards.

"I’m really happy that happened after getting selected to the Pro Bowl and all of that for returns and to have a game like that to jump out and kind of prove it," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday.

Lockett had 1,915 all-purpose yards during the regular season – fourth-most in Seahawks history and the most ever for a Seahawks rookie.

Lockett also won the award in September – the second rookie to ever win multiple player of the month awards, following Tamarick Vanover in 1995 - and was also named to the Pro Bowl last month.
