The Seattle Seahawks don't have to worry about a standoff with DK Metcalf, as the sides agreed to a three-year, $72 million extension -- $58.2 million guaranteed

Metcalf was heading into the final year of his rookie contract.  

Metcalf will receive a $30 million signing bonus, the highest for a wide receiver in league history.  

The deal will keep Metcalf in Seattle until he's 27 years old, as he'll be tied with Stefon Diggs as the sixth-highest paid wide receiver in the NFL.  

Only Tyreek Hill ($30 million), Davante Adams ($28 million), DeAndre Hopkins ($27,250,000), Cooper Kupp ($26,700,000), and A.J. Brown ($25 million) are higher. 

Metcalf, who reported to Seahawks camp but wouldn't practice without a new deal, didn't seem concerned a long-term extension couldn't be reached. 

Former Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson congratulated his ex-teammate on his new deal.
