NFL Network’s Mike Garofalo reported Metcalf and the Seattle Seahawks agreed to a three-year, $72 million extension. The deal includes $58.2 million guaranteed and a $30 million bonus, which is the most for any wide receiver. Metcalf still has one year left on his rookie deal, which is worth just under $4 million. The $24 million new-money average of the extension makes Metcalf the Seahawks’ highest-paid player.
Metcalf is only 24 years old, so he should still be in his prime by the time this deal is up. He did admit to bluffing in his contract talks but always wanted to remain in Seattle. However, this will be his first season without Russell Wilson, who was traded to the Denver Broncos this offseason. Even with Wilson’s up-and-down play last year, he’s still had a far better NFL career than Geno Smith, Drew Lock, and Jacob Eason, who are competing to earn the starting quarterback job for the Seahawks.
On the flip side, having Metcalf to throw passes to will certainly be a boost for whoever wins the quarterback job. After offseason surgery on his foot, the receiver should be coming in much healthier than last season.
Metcalf has already broken the Seahawks’ single-season franchise record for receiving yards (1,303 in 2020). Now, his goal is to get the team back to the playoffs and give them a chance to win a Super Bowl. That turnaround would be even more impressive than his chase-down tackle.
