It’s exciting times for the Seattle Seahawks as they aim to capitalize on their success from last season.

However, the franchise finds itself in the news cycle for a completely different reason and it has NFL fans calling foul.

According to Adam Schefter, the Seahawks have made Tyler Lockett’s Real Estate Company, LivNServe Real Estate, an official team sponsor.

Look, that’s a pretty cool situation for Lockett. Not only does he play for the Seahawks, but his company is also an official sponsor.

However, that is the exact reason why NFL fans are so unsure about this announcement.

Many suggest Seattle may be circumventing the salary cap with this sponsorship deal. Even NFL talking heads are bringing it up.

Maybe Tyler Lockett should’ve waited until retirement to do this deal with the Seahawks.

It wouldn’t be surprising if the league looked more into this situation.

Nothing is getting by NFL fans.

Meanwhile, Seahawks fans do not seem to care. They’re just happy for Tyler Lockett.

For now, the sponsorship deal between the Seahawks and Tyler Lockett’s company is finalized. Even though fans are questioning the situation.

Perhaps the NFL will look more into this decision by Seattle. But that will only happen if the league feels the franchise may actually be circumventing the salary cap.

Lockett’s current deal was signed in 2021 for four years $69 million. He’s set to be a free agent in 2026.

It’s unclear whether or not the Seahawks tried to circumvent the salary cap with this sponsorship deal with Tyler Lockett. But NFL fans are clearly questioning the decision.
