Key Facts

  • DK Metcalf has agreed to a three-year, $72 million extension with the Seattle Seahawks, a deal that includes $58.2 million guaranteed and a $30 million signing bonus, the highest ever for a wide receiver.
  • The news comes shortly after Metcalf, who will be a free agent again at 27 years old, was a spectator and not a participant on the first day of training camp amid extension talks with the team.
  • Metcalf was one of the last of a class of wide receivers in line for new contracts in an offseason filled with deals for pass catchers.
  • His new deal is the latest example of how Seattle is well adept at dealing with players seeking new deals showing up but not practicing until the contract situation is settled, having gone through this in recent years with the likes of Bobby Wagner, Jamal Adams and Duane Brown.
