Source — DK Metcalf, Seattle Seahawks agree to three-year, $72 million extension

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has signed a three-year, $72 million extension that includes $58.2 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Thursday.

The deal, the source said, includes a $30 million signing bonus, the highest ever for a recipient.

Metcalf will be a free agent again at the age of 27.

He reported with the rest of the team on Tuesday, then did not attend any part of Wednesday’s first practice session during contract negotiations, instead opting for the increasingly popular approach that became known as ‘hold-in’.

Nonetheless, coach Pete Carroll remained optimistic that the sides would reach an agreement, saying on Wednesday: “We’re working.”

A day later this work was realized, and now Metcalf will be in Seattle long-term.

Metcalf is the last second-round pick of 2019 and has totaled 216 catches for 3,170 yards and 29 touchdowns in his first three seasons. He made his only Pro Bowl of 2020 after breaking Steve Largent’s franchise record for a season with 1,303 receiving yards.

Metcalf has never missed a game in his career. He played for most of last season with a broken bone in his foot that required surgery.
