    RENTON, Wash. - Ahead of Sunday’s matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, Detroit Lions tight end Luke Willson still has his time in Seattle on his mind. 

    Seattle-area media members who arrived at the VMAC on Wednesday were greeted with desserts sent by Willson to show his appreciation for his five years in Seattle. 

    In addition to the desserts, Willson left the following note: 

    “Seattle Media, 

    My 5 years in Seattle were some of the best of my life and you guys were a big part of that. I appreciate the working relationship we had together and your role in covering our team. I can’t even imagine how much you all miss me. Enjoy some desserts on me, it’s the least that I could do. Travel safe and see you on Sunday.

    Travel safe and see you on Sunday. 

    -Luke Willson”

    Willson was originally a fifth round pick by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2013 draft. In his five seasons with the team, Willson played in 81 games and recorded 102 catches, 1283 yards and 12 touchdowns (playoff stats included).

    Willson left the Seahawks in March to sign a one-year deal with the Lions.
