One dealer predicts the Seahawks will trade DK Metcalf.

According to a representative, the Seattle Seahawks will soon be trading one of their star players.

As noted by ESPN’s Brady Henderson on Friday, June 24, three agents were polled about their predictions for Metcalf’s contract situation. While the two believe the Seahawks will extend the contract for their 24-year-old recipient, one agent believes Seattle would rather trade Metcalf than sign him to a big deal.

“ESPN polled three NFL agents who were not involved in the Metcalf negotiations but are well versed in the receiver market,” said Henderson. “One predicts the Seahawks will have an average annual Metcalf expansion similar to (AJ) Brown’s $25 million. Another reckons they won’t be higher than $25 million per season and guarantees about $60 million — assuming a 4-year extension, Seattle’s preferred length. The third employee didn’t think the Seahawks would go that high and predicted the team would trade Metcalf. “

Seahawks remain bullish on Metcalf . trade

Metcalf is entering the final year of his rookie contract, a deal that will pay him just $4.3 million this season, ranking 41st among all players widely received in the Premier League. Tournaments. According to Spotrac, Metcalf’s market value is $22 million per season for 4 years, which would make him the seventh highest paid receiver in the league.

All indications are that the Seahawks plan to keep Metcalf in Seattle. Even after the youngster decided to sit out the mandatory mini-field earlier this month, head coach Pete Carroll insisted he was optimistic that a deal would be done.

“We’ve been through this for years, and we know it’s been a challenging time,” explains Carroll. “We’ve had a lot of celebrities go through this process and how has it worked for us? We figured it out in time. Johnny (Schneider) was on board and he’s as experienced as you can be in handling these things. “

If the Seahawks re-sign Metcalf to renew their contract, the fair basis is AJ Brown of the Philadelphia Eagles. Brown signed a four-year, $100 million contract extension when traded from the Tennessee Titans during the 2022 NFL draft.

Brown and Metcalf not only share the same agent, they are from the same draft class and are both 24 years old. Furthermore, Metcalf’s career stats so far – 216 3170 yard touches and 29 touchdowns – have actually exceeded Brown’s stats of 185 contacts for 2,995 yards and 24 touchdowns.


Cowherd: Seahawks won’t pay Metcalf

With all that said, there’s a big difference – the Brown’s Eagles are trying to compete a year after winning a playoff spot. The Seahawks, on the other hand, are in clear rebuilding mode after their trade with franchise quarterback Russell Wilson.

While the Eagles are trying to hoard key players in an attempt to stop the Dallas Cowboys for NFC East supremacy, the Seahawks are content to start Geno Smith or Drew Lock in quarterback. In other words, Seattle could end up with the worst performance in the NFL next season.

The Seahawks’ lack of a solid future has led some analysts – such as Fox Sports’ Colin Cowherd – to believe that Seattle is in no hurry to actually sign the Metcalf he desires.

Cowherd predicts: “His numbers will plummet. “And he wants to get paid early. He knew his numbers would plummet. And the Seahawks do. And the Seahawks won’t pay him. “

“Seahawks for three reasons have leverage here,” Cowherd continued. “First, losing a little bit more is not the worst thing in the world this year for Seattle. They want a top four in next year’s draft. Second, Seattle – due to the Russell Wilson trade – is loaded with the next two drafts with first and second picks. And third is college football which gives us 25 college players playing a year. “

The Seahawks remain adamant that they want Metcalf to stay with the team moving forward. But Seattle’s rebuilding direction could result in a contract offer slightly lower than what’s currently being offered in similar receivers on the market.
