Two Rookies, Fifty Years Apart


The Seahawks’ Tyler Lockett is only the second rookie in NFL history with at least five receiving touchdowns, a kick return touchdown and a punt return touchdown. The other is a fella named Gale Sayers, who did it when my parents were still in high school, in 1965. For anyone doing, or not doing, the math, that’s 50 years ago! I don’t know anything about Sayers. I’ll have to look him up on the Google. I know Lockett is a special player, but this is a remarkable feat.
