Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett, who signed a four-year, $69.2 million contract extension with the franchise, including $37 million in guaranteed money, has other types of contracts in his base: real estate.

Lockett got his real estate license in Washington during the NFL’s offseason, KOMO News reported. He is also studying to take his exam in Texas. good.

Lockett passed his Washington test in February and received his license in March. He dove straight into the fast-moving residential market, listing a home for $3.2 million in Sammamish, 20 miles east of Seattle.

The house eventually sold for the asking price and was on hold after just seven days. He described the sales process as “really cool”.

He is still working, despite the fact that training camp is underway. Last Friday, Lockett told reporters he had another deal pending, joking that he used his estate phone more often than his home phone.

The athlete said he decided to get into the business after buying his first home, building on the time he spent watching HGTV when he was younger. Agent may just be the start: Lockett has also floated the idea that he could eventually move into development.

For now, Lockett will soon enter the NFL season, where expectations for his team are dwindling after the franchise traded superstar quarterback Russell Wilson. He will be part of a receiving body that will capture passes from Geno Smith or Drew Lock.

Lockett caught 73 passes for eight touchdowns and a career-high 1,175 receiving yards last season. The wide receiver was first-team All-Pro once and second-team twice during his seven-year career.
