SJ - April 6, 2022
The Seahawks have repeatedly stated that they have no intentions of trading wide receiver DK Metcalf. To some that wording sounds like the door is open for a possible trade.
So far that door has remained closed. The Seahawks reportedly aren't even listening to trade offers, not even from the Jets who are said to be willing to include the No. 10 overall pick in a trade offer.
From Pro Football Talk:
Howard Eskin of WIP recently reported that the Jets were ready to send the 10th overall pick in the 2022 draft to Seattle for Metcalf, but that the Seahawks won’t listen to offers for him.
“The Jets were going to offer, and Seattle knew it, the No. 10 pick in the first round,” Eskin said. “I’ve been told by multiple people when somebody calls Seattle about D.K. Metcalf, [they saiy] ‘We’re not trading him. We’re not trading him.’ They don’t even take the offer. They just say ‘Nope’ and they just shut it right down. You can’t even make an offer right now.'”
(Others are reporting the Jets never offered the 10th overall pick to Seattle. But Eskin hasn’t reported that they did; he reported that they were going to. Presumably, it would take more than the 10th overall pick to get Metcalf.)
The post-Russell Wilson era is going to be a rough transition for sure. The Seahawks should really look into any offer for DK. Keeping him on a team that isn't going to be able to utilize his abilities doesn't do anyone any good.
