Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Tyler Lockett has agreed to a three-year, $31.8 million extension that puts him under contract through the 2021 season, according to a report by the NFL Media.

Lockett's deal reportedly includes $20 million in guaranteed money and a max value of $37.8 million. The incentives that could trigger the additional $6 million are not known.

Lockett, 25, was entering the final year of his four-year, $3.32 million rookie contract and is slated to earn $705,000 million in base salary this season.

The 5-foot-10, 182-pound former Kansas State star has emerged as a starter opposite Doug Baldwin for a Seahawks offense that lost tight end Jimmy Graham and wide receiver Paul Richardson in free agency this offseason.

Lockett has 137 receptions for 1,816 yards and nine touchdowns through his first three NFL seasons. He is also one of the league's most explosive return men, averaging 25.9 yards with two touchdowns on 93 career kick returns and 8.2 yards with one score on 105 punt returns.
