RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Because of the position he plays, his slide during the NFL draft and the team that selected him, DK Metcalf has spent the offseason in the spotlight.
As much as he’s trying to avoid drawing the same kind of attention during his first training camp with the Seattle Seahawks, the 6-foot-4, 229-pound rookie receiver can’t shake it. Fans are already showing up for practices wearing No. 14 jerseys, even though Metcalf hasn’t caught a single pass in an NFL game. Coach Pete Carroll even joked that there is a Metcalf jersey hanging in the coaches’ locker room.
“I was a nobody at one point in my life,” Metcalf said Monday.
