Completely Unexpected Behavior From NFL Player Who’s Career May Be Over
Seattle Seahawk's wide receiver Ricardo Lockette's season came to an end on November 1 after absorbing a brutal hit against Dallas, and with his career now looming the balance, his post-surgery behavior was completely unexpected.
According to a report on TMZ, Lockette was leaving the hospital following neck surgery and noticed a large group of homeless people. He told his driver to go on by - and head to McDonalds.
Once at the Golden Arches, Lockette proceeded to buy 100 cheeseburgers, and then returned to the people to pass out the burgers -- in a neck brace from the surgery.
Lockette's father apparently confirmed the story to TMZ saying "it was a beautiful thing."
The season may be over for Lockette - and possibly his career -but his kind deed is a great example to the rest of the NFL, where off the field problems have grabbed the headlines. There are plenty of good guys in the NFL who are doing good things off the field, and when it happens we need to stand up and take notice.
By the way, here's the hit that ended Lockette's season. We wish him a speedy recovery.
