Seahawks WR Metcalf Says He’s Ready for Bigger and Better in 2020

Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf had an outstanding rookie season. But not everyone was convinced he could play the part, which is why he fell to the end of the NFL draft’s second round, where the Seahawks traded up to take him, Adam Jude of the Seattle Times reports.
Metcalf looked and played the part of a budding superstar as a rookie, quickly emerging as Seattle’s No. 2 receiver and posting 58 receptions for 900 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 regular-season games. A few weeks after his 22nd birthday, he then set an NFL rookie playoff record with 160 yards receiving in the Seahawks’ first-round playoff victory at Philadelphia.

“Just showing everyone what I already knew I could do,” Metcalf said in a phone interview Friday afternoon. He is in Miami this week of Sunday’s Super Bowl to promote his work with Panini NFL trading cards. On Friday, he was among a group of NFL players to participate in a skills camp for kids hosted by Panini.

Reflecting on his rookie season, Metcalf said he was most proud that he was able to play in all 18 games for the Seahawks, a year after a cervical neck fracture at Ole Miss in October 2018 ended his college career and threatened to prematurely end his football career period.

“Just going out there and playing every game and being able to play as many snaps as I needed to, knowing I had the injury history in college,” he said.

“It’s a mountain I’m still climbing,” he added. “I haven’t reached the peak, and that peak is still 10, 15 years from now. But I’m just trying to enjoy the moment, because I know football can be taken away from you at any point in time. Ever since the neck injury, each moment I have with football — being in the weight room, being around my teammates — I just try to enjoy as much as I can. And I want to give back as much as I can.”

It’s the game of the week in the NFL, as the NFC West will be on the line as the Seahawks and 49ers will do battle in Seattle on Sunday Night Football.

Here’s a preview:

Details on the Contract for New Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch

The Hawks are looking forward to having Marshawn Lynch back in their offense, and according to Ian Rapoport, the running back will make just over $60,000 for the week 17 game against the 49ers.

Seahawks Visiting with Former RB Marshawn Lynch as the Team Looks for Healthy Running Backs

The Seahawks need help at the running back spot, and are turning to an old friend to possibly try and settle their issues at the position.

Reports say that the team is visiting with former Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch, and some think that he could ink a deal with the team as early as Monday evening.

“He’ll be flying in there this morning, and we’re going to give him a really good chance to come back and play for us,” coach Pete Carroll said Monday morning on 710 ESPN Seattle.

“He’s really excited about the chance to help us,” Carroll added, per the Seattle Times.

Hawks leading rusher Chris Carson is out for the rest of the season with a broken hip, and the team will miss his 1,230 yards.

The team also won’t have C.J. Prosise, who suffered a broken arm in Seattle’s Week 16 loss to Arizona, and tackle Duane Brown, who has a knee issue that requires surgery.

They need to pickup someone, and fast, as the team will have the premiere game in week 17 when they take on the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night football.

Seahawks WR Josh Gordon Suspended Indefinitely by NFL for PED’s

The Seahawks took a chance on troubled wide receiver Josh Gordon, and Monday that chance came back to bite them as Gordon has been suspended yet again by the league.

Seattle announced that Gordon, whom they claimed off waivers in November, was suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL policies on performance-enhancing substances and substances of abuse.

“My heart goes out to Josh to have to face this again,” Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Monday.

“The fact that he’s up against it and all, it poses a great challenge to him. Fortunately, he’ll have the benefit of all of the league’s resources to support him and to help him and we’ll wish him the very best in taking care of business. It was very unfortunate.”

The suspension is the sixth for Gordon since the 2013 season and the fifth for some form of substance abuse.

He didn’t have a huge impact for the Hawks in his time with the franchise, making seven grabs for 139 yards including a 58-yard reception during a 30-24 victory over the Panthers on Sunday.
