Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett noticed a striking detail in the NFL game versus the Broncos. His old teammate and Broncos QB, Russell Wilson, used the same hand signals from his time in Seattle. Lockett was mic’d up for the game. So, he sensed the opportunity and passed the information to his teammates. In the videos, he can be heard decoding hand signals of Wilson to the other Seahawks players.

If you see this, it’s a go,” Lockett told Seahawks safety, Tariq Woolen, with a hand gesture. Sitting on the sideline, he later yelled, “He’s running a go! He’s running a go,” while talking to the Seahawks defense. Meanwhile, the 29-year-old’s gestures become a talking point on Twitter. Several NFL fans shared their views on social media.
