With training camp just underway, the Seahawks and wide receiver DK Metcalf have agreed on a big new contract.

It’s a three-year, $72 million extension with $58.2 million guaranteed, PFT has confirmed.

The 24-year-old Metcalf arrived in Seattle as the last pick of the second round of the 2019 NFL draft and has exceeded all expectations in his first three seasons, totaling 3,170 receiving yards and 29 touchdowns.

Metcalf would have been heading into the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, but he and the Seahawks both indicated this offseason that they wanted to extend him beyond this year, and now they’ve done so, with a deal that will make Metcalf very well compensated now, and will give him the opportunity to hit free agency when he’s still in his prime.

  1. It’s going to be a lucky QB that jumps into the starter role after next years draft. Rebuilt LOB2 crushing on defense, overhauled young and nasty OL, a stout running game and two of the best WR’s in the game. Feels awfully familiar with PC/JS building another juggernaut.

  2. The QB who will be throwing to DK next year is not on the team. With the insane contracts given to WR’s by next year this will either be a bargain for the Seahawks or a valuable trade asset at the draft for picks.

    Why pay a WR with Geno under center?
    =====================

    Because he won’t be by year end and certainly won’t be next season.

  4. Sounds like a pretty reasonable deal for a great WR in todays market.
    Now as to who is throwing the ball to him….

  5. He’ll get over 1000 yards this yr. Don’t be surprise that Seahawks will make the playoff this yr.

  6. So you pay a guy you can double who runs 5 routes 20 mil
    per?

    Schneider is trying to get fired. Seattle is going to be a bad team for a long time.

  7. Is there a clause in his contract that voids his guarantees if he has X number of drops?

  8. The sign of a bad franchise, overpaying wide receivers. Especially without a quarterback.

    Worth every penny. Now just get a qb in 2023 to utilize DK>>>

    Don’t worry, Hawks will have the Number 1 overall pick in 2023.

  10. Thought DK might hold out for top $$ ++. This is still good money and he’s gotta’ be pleased with the bonus and guarantees. Good deal all around.

    Go Hawks-!!

    Why pay a WR with Geno under center?

    —————————-

    With that logic, why pay anyone?

    FYI: In the 4 games Geno played in:

    Metcalf 19 catches (23 targets) 295 yards 5 TDs

    Over 17 games that would be 1295 yards 21 TDs

    Yea, why pay a WR for that kind of production?

  12. Seachickens should have canned Pete, went after Daboll and paid Russ. Let DK prove his worth in his last year on that rook contract. Absolutely mental paying a WR nearly 60 mil guaranteed with absolutely NO QB talent in the building. Seattle once the toast of the NFC West, looking like an absolute JOKE behind LAR, AZ and SF. Bravo! At least you still have SEVENTY year old Pete Carroll as your HC.

  13. Some were saying this guy might sneak into the first round. But that ‘workout warrior’ label and he looked like anything but a WR or CB. He looked too good to be true? Then he just fell and kept falling until the end of round 2. Best thing that ever happened to him.

    The failed 1st round players get more money. But the successful ones are sitting around clamoring away for a new contract as we speak. He’s now set for life, instead of risking it out there this year, which he would be doing if he was a 1st rounder.

    Good for him. He deserves it.

    PS: I’d rather be the first pick in the 2nd round than the last pick in round 1. That’s a flaw in the system. Same as it’s better to be a FA than a 7th rounder. Another uncorrected flaw.

  14. So Jalen Ramsey shutting him down will break down to about 5 mil/pass over the next 3 years?

  15. A beast, but not a complete reciever yet. A 3 year free agent deal is nothing. He’s on his way somewhere in 1 or 2 seasons to probably Denver.

  16. “Feels awfully familiar with PC/JS building another juggernaut.”

    PC/JS haven’t built a “juggernaut” in 7 years. Ever since Scott McClough left it’s been downhill

    The season will show Jody Allen let the wrong person go

  17. By the time next years drafted QB is ready to throw for a championship, DK will moving on to his next team. There’s no Joe Burrow coming up.

  18. Good deal for both sides.

    DK can get another big payday.

    And for Hawks, this kid has the potential to Terrell Owens himself off the team 3 years from now.

  19. Schneider is trying to get fired. Seattle is going to be a bad team for a long time.
    ==========

    I’m not sure they’ll find their mojo again. Its not looking like it.

    But Schneider had his chance to get out. He re-upped in 2021. He’s under contract through 2027.

  20. WRs are a disposable asset. Every yr, 5 or 6 good ones come out of college. Why sign a guy just because he looks like a bodybuilder? No more Wilson throwing the ball – do the Hawks realize that?

  21. He’s a great wide receiver. Glad the team secured the deal. I just find it fascinating that all the same folks who said Russell Wilson was nothing special are all suddenly saying the team is nothing without him.

  22. PC/JS haven’t built a “juggernaut” in 7 years. Ever since Scott McClough left it’s been downhill

    The season will show Jody Allen let the wrong person go
    ==========

    Are you aware of McCloughans personal issues?

    No chance Seattle could make him the GM. Schneider was his closer friend, he could even keep him on as his top scout.

    =============================================

    Metcalf had two TDs off Ramsey in the 2020 Wild Card playoff game

    Not exactly “shutdown”

    Prior to that it was VERY one-sided. A blind squirrel finds a nut every now and again? Enjoy watching him catch passes next year. I’m sure they will be throwing it a lot as they will likely be behind in every game.
