Pete Carroll: Seahawks will “do everything we can” to re-sign DK Metcalf

Not long ago, Russell Wilson and DK Metcalf were joined at the hip. Now, Wilson is gone and Metcalf is entering the final year of his rookie contract.

So what will the Seahawks do about Metcalf, who has become one of the best young receivers in the NFL? Coach Pete Carroll says the team wants to keep Metcalf around.

Via Gregg Bell of the Tacoma News Tribune, Carroll said in an appearance on KJR radio that the Seahawks will try to get Metcalf signed to a new contract before the 2022 season commences.

It’s really important to us,” Carroll said. “We love him. He maybe will go down as one of the great draft picks we’ve ever had here. We are going to do everything we can to get it done.”

Of course, the best draft pick they’ve ever had was Wilson. Even though they clumsily tried to suggest last week that Wilson is “one of” the best quarterbacks in franchise history.

The best news for Seahawks fans is that Carroll didn’t say the team has “no intention” to trade Metcalf. Because we all know how that ends.

  1. If he’s smart, see how this year shakes out before committing to long term failure or a painful rebuild

  2. I’m hoping he wants to sign up for a long stint with Seattle. If not, he will undoubtedly be franchise tagged at least twice. That, by the way, is the amount of guaranteed $ that he will be getting in any long term deal he signs.

  3. Has Pete talked with his GM? I sounds like he is ready to resign everyone. I guess there is no cap in Seattle.

  4. Imagine committing to a WR long term with no QB and in a rebuild. I’d argue it’s best to trade him while you can still get value for him

  5. Dude is big and fast but the route tree is seriously incomplete. The reason he fell in the draft still exists. Let him walk. Russ made him look way better than he is. His big passes came from extended plays.

  6. Translation: We have 6 offers on the table and none of you have come with enough draft picks.

  7. “I still dont think that Wilson was that good.”

    He WAS that good. He ISN’T that good anymore. He cannot move very well anymore. I feel like he cannot really see the field as well without his mobility.

  8. DK is a beast, and brings great energy to the field. I hope they do re-sign him! 👍

  9. DK runs his mouth a lot and seems to be a Primadonna as of late. Let’s see if he turns out to be another AB before they commit long term. Not a winning mentality, no matter how fast the guy can run.

  10. DK is a beast but no Qb developed and you’ve wasted him. Trade now to the Eagles because they should have drafted him and take those three number ones from them!!!!
