Seattle Seahawks receivers Tyler Lockett and David Moore put on the red and white swag for their Canadian teammate Luke Willson.

Lockett and Moore made quite the entrance to CenturyLink Field for the Monday Night Football stage in advance of taking on the Minnesota Vikings. The Seahawks have a strong following from Canadians in the West, especially British Columbia.

Locket is in the midst of his best season in the NFL. He’s on pace for the first 1,000-yard campaign of his career becoming a go-to target for Russell Wilson.

Willson re-signed with Seattle after being released by the Oakland Raiders following training camp. He’s played with Lockett for four seasons and Moore two.

The LaSalle, Ontario native spent the 2018 season playing for the Detroit Lions. Willson grew up a 30-minute drive across theĀ border from FordĀ Field where theĀ Lions play theirĀ home games.

The 29-year-old has 110 career catches for 1,295 yards with 11 touchdowns in 93 games through seven years, the first five with the Seahawks. He has 13 catches for 154 yards and one score in the playoffs, including two receptions when Seattle routed Denver in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Seattle drafted the Rice University product in the fifth round, 15th overall in 2013. A year earlier the Toronto Argonauts picked Wilson in the fifth round, 32nd overall during the CFL draft.

It shows Willson has been fully embraced by his American teammates.
