According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Seattle Seahawks and standout wide receiver DK Metcalf have reached a three-year, $72 million deal agreement.

Pete Carroll, the head coach of the Seahawks, revealed to the media in March that the team was attempting to renew Metcalf's contract before to the start of the 2022 campaign.

Carroll at the time stated to 93.3 KJR that "it's incredibly essential to us." "I adore him.

He could be remembered as one of our best draft picks in history. We're going to use every effort to complete it."

However, once Seattle traded quarterback Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos, there was some conjecture that Metcalf may want out.

But it's evident from the veteran wideout's outspoken support for Drew Lock, who the team acquired in the Wilson deal, that he shares the team's philosophy.

The Seahawks took Metcalf in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft, and he has been a mainstay ever since.

The 24-year-old caught 58 catches for 900 yards and seven touchdowns in a stellar first season.

He improved on that in his sophomore year of 2020, catching 83 passes for a career-high 1,303 yards and 10 touchdowns

In 2021, he caught 75 catches for 967 yards and 12 touchdowns.

The Seahawks won't have to worry about the No. 1 receiver position for some time now that Metcalf has committed.
