The Seahawks have shown no signs of being willing to trade wide receiver DK Metcalf ahead of the final year of his contract and Metcalf is showing no urgency when it comes to forcing his way out of Seattle.

During an appearance on the Club Shay Shay podcast with Shannon Sharpe, Metcalf said that “it’s all smiles right now” in response to a question about being up for a new deal at a moment when we his college teammate A.J. Brown and other wideouts have agreed to lucrative pacts. He said it is “just a matter of when” it is his turn to cash in and expressed confidence that he’ll be doing so as a member of the Seahawks.

“We’re going to get something done. I think I’m going to be in Seattle for the next coming years,” Metcalf said.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said after the draft that “we’ve been on a great wavelength to move forward” and Metcalf appears to be in the same frame of mind, so the stage is set for things to progress toward a happy ending in Seattle.

  1. Why would he possibly want to stay with the Seahawks? They will be lucky to win 4 games this season

  2. Hah. $25 mill/yr for DK when Russ is no longer there to throw him that sweet deep ball, and playing on a run first offense doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Plus, we’ll see how DK likes playing out of the limelight on a 6 win (at best) team. Enjoy, Seahawks fans!!

  3. I’m going out a limb and saying DK’s numbers will be down this year. And next year. And…

  4. This isn’t haters hating…this is realistic talk that he should not stay on a very very bad team, one with no QB and an old D focused coach. DK is foolish to stay, and so are supporters being foolish not realizing the facts.

    I had the same thought about DK when Russ went down but then I watched Seahawks games and saw DK catch TD passes from Geno Smith. With an improved o line Lock and DK can do a little something something let’s not get ignorant.

  8. DK doesn’t need Russell to be able to run & catch. He just needs someone competent to get the ball downfield. He is going to have that. In addition, the run game will help free him up a bit. Why everyone is commenting like the sky is falling, is beyond me. The roster I see is quite good. I’m okay with the moves made & the confidence shown by the team in themselves. Go Hawks!
