DK Metcalf Needs More Time to Improve

Seattle, WA- After the Seattle Seahawks defeated the Denver Broncos 22-14 in their preseason debut, many people wanted to know why was DK Metcalf pulled early and why did he not get more touches.


Metcalf had only one catch for eight yards and dropped two passes that Geno Smith threw him that could have been some big gains for the Seahawks. He’s made a couple of those catches (in practice),” Carroll said. “He clicked heels with the (defender) and almost got the first one, and the second one was just off his fingertips. You could see him. He got behind them just like we’re hoping. He’s a big threat.”

Metcalf has speed and a body frame that will make it hard for defenders to keep up with him and he is very aware of it. “It was great,” Metcalf said about his first NFL experience. “I’m just happy I got to be out there in front of all the Seahawks fans showcasing what I can do. “The speed of my play,” Metcalf said regarding what he hopes to work on in the coming weeks. “I feel like I was just trying to get used to the speed of the game for the first time. Just playing with speed.”

This is just the first game for the Seahawks and improvement will come with more reps with the starting team, but Metcalf has made it known that he is willing to put in the time and effort to be the best person that he can be on the field.
