A hospital stay is rarely an enjoyable experience, yet Seattle Seahawks receiver Ricardo Lockette found a way to make his in Dallas exactly that, as on his way home he handed out some food to homeless people.

As reported by TMZ, Lockette, who underwent neck surgery that has ended his 2015 season, decided to do the good deed as he passed through an area of town with a large homeless population.

We reached out to Lockette’s dad who confirmed the whole thing — telling us his son was adamant about helping out on Nov. 5th, so he told the driver to head to McDonald’s and bought 100 CHEESEBURGERS!

“He had a neck brace on while he was passing out the burgers,” Earl Lockette tells us … “So some people were like, ‘What happened to you?’ But Ricardo didn’t try and bring attention to who he was.”

“Some people knew who he was. But this was more about Ricardo seeing people who were in worse shape than him, and wanting to help them however he could.”
