Seahawks receiver DK Metcalf wants a contract extension, which has prompted much discussion about his future. But when the team begins its nine-week offseason program Tuesday, Metcalf is expected to be among those participating, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

Some players seeking new deals stay away from the voluntary work to make a point, but Metcalf has given the team “no indications that he would not show up for the program.”

The Seahawks traded Russell Wilson to the Broncos only weeks after Pete Carroll said they had “no intention” of dealing the franchise quarterback. Reportedly, the Seahawks aren’t listening to offers for Metcalf, though the Jets were ready to send the 10th overall pick in the 2022 draft for him.

Metcalf, 24, is entering the final year of his rookie deal due to make $3.986 million in 2022. He set a franchise record with 1,303 yards receiving in 2020 and has 216 receptions for 3,170 yards and 29 touchdowns.

  1. By staying in Seattle I feel like he may have to endure the frustration of being a part of a team that really doesn’t have a shot – indeed the second coming of Megatron in that way as well. If they are rebuilding then rebuild. Save paying out the contract & grab a couple of picks. The curiosity for me regarding Seattle is how Carroll still has the HC job?

  2. Seattle shouldn’t trade him unless they are not willing to pay him. If they are going to pay him they should do it sooner rather than later. Waiting until next year will only drive up the cost of keeping him. Plus paying him now will keep him from becoming a distraction later on. Personally I think that they should just pay the man.

  3. Looks like Steve Largent may have to pull the ol’ #80 jersey off moth balls and catch a few passes this upcoming season.

  4. He has been very professional since the Wilson trade. and if you look at the actual stats from last season, he was much more productive while catching balls from Geno the 4 games he started, than he was at any point with Wilson last season….

    Go Hawks

  5. I was saying over on a Deebo Samuel thread that if the Niners could get a deal going, I’d LOVE to have him on the Titans across from A.J. Brown (Could you imagine!?!), but I doubt there’s enough money for that. I feel exactly the same about D.K., with the added thought that the two of them would be so excited to play together, they might spontaneously combust
