Pete Carroll optimistic deal will get done with Seahawks WR DK Metcalf

Pete Carroll optimistic deal will get done with Seahawks WR DK Metcalf

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf skipped out on the team’s mandatory minicamp, most likely holding out for a contract extension that still hasn’t materialized entering the summer break.

Coach Pete Carroll told reporters at the close of minicamp that he was still optimistic a deal would get done.

“We’ve been through this for years, and we know it’s a challenging time,” Carroll explained. “We’ve had so many high-profile guys that have gone through this process and how’s that worked out for us? We’ve figured it out in time. Johnny (Schneider) is on it and he’s as experienced as you can get at handling this stuff.”

With wide receivers around the league commanding more and more cash with each signing, there is no denying Metcalf is in for a huge payday. Seattle fans are just hoping it’s with the Seahawks.

“You got to go through it, so that’s just what it is, and our guys have to too” Carroll continued. “We have to go through it again and start all over fresh, knowing that it’s brand new for us and a kid like DK and he’s a remarkable person. He’s a wonderful player, he has so much to offer the world, and I just don’t want him to miss this opportunity, where we can’t figure it out. So, we’ll do everything that we can.”

The Seahawks and Metcalf have just a little over a month to sort things out if they plan to do so before the start of training camp at the end of July.
