RENTON, Wash. -- T.J. Houshmandzadeh says he's "shocked" with the fuss Seattle's making over him.
The outspoken receiver said Friday he's been getting messages from former teammates in Cincinnati asking why people on and around the Seahawks have been making a big deal about his angry gestures and comments about not getting the ball more.
Houshmandzadeh, who signed a $40 million, five-year contract in the spring, has just 35 receptions through seven games. He had 92, 112 and 90 catches in his last three years with the Bengals.
Last weekend he angrily gestured toward Matt Hasselbeck to throw the ball with more loft after he tried to zing a hard pass to the tightly guarded receiver in Dallas. The discussion continued at the bench.
In other news, tackle Sean Locklear was listed as probable for Sunday's game. But head coach Jim Mora said he's not positive Locklear will start over Damion McIntosh at left tackle.
