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.
