Wide receiver DK Metcalf was present for voluntary workouts over the course of the Seahawks’ offseason program, but he’s reportedly absent as they move to the only mandatory work on the schedule.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Metcalf is not present as the Seahawks kick off their mandatory minicamp on Tuesday. There’s no word on whether or not it is an excused absence and Metcalf is still working his way back from foot surgery.

Metcalf is one of many fourth-year wideouts whose bids for contract extensions have been the subject of attention over the last few months. Metcalf’s college teammate A.J. Brown got one from the Eagles after an April trade, but Metcalf, Deebo Samuel, Terry McLaurin, and Diontae Johnson are still looking for them.

Metcalf and the Seahawks both expressed confidence that a deal will come together. For now, though, the wait continues.

  1. Why go to practice? The Seahawks haven’t got a starting QB. To risk getting hurt and lose the payday just to play with guys who couldn’t start for 31 other teams???

  2. The Hawks cannot blow this one. The dudes a beast and a great teammate please break the bank for this man!

  3. Considering all the blockbuster contracts going around, and the apparent ability to just work around the CAP, I feel this is going by way of the NBA – which hasn’t worked well for the NBA viewership.

    The Davante Adams effect.. except.. these guys aren’t Adams.
    ———-
    DK is only 24, a beast and just getting better. Adams is 30. As my much as it’s painful to see Metcalf will far surpass Adams. Deebo may too if Lance turns out to be good.

  5. Pair this man with Justin Herbert. The lights, the cameras and the action of Los Angeles pair perfectly with Metcalfs larger than life personality. Send Mike Williams and some draft capital to Seattle. Get it done!

  6. What’s more annoying…? Malcontent wideouts or Pete Carroll’s maniacal gum chewing on the sideline?

  7. Trainwreck franchise. Why would he show up to catch lame duck passes from Geno Smith?

    I see why you didn’t include “people who don’t read the article before commenting” in your list, because they are unquestionably the most annoying of all.

  9. Adams had Rodgers throwing to him , who is undeniably the best QB around. His production will now suffer , although he has got paid.
    DK and Deebo have no chance of improving , with their QB situation.

  10. Pair this man with Justin Herbert. The lights, the cameras and the action of Los Angeles pair perfectly with Metcalfs larger than life personality. Send Mike Williams and some draft capital to Seattle. Get it done!

    Lights , camera , action , no fans ?

    Chiefs on line 1. JuJu and Scantling-? for DK

    Throw in some draft picks and this may be worth considering
