Report: DK Metcalf believed to be available for 'the right price'

By , Audacy Sports

While the Seahawks have maintained that their "intent" is to sign DK Metcalf to a contract extension, rumors continue to swirl that a trade involving the star wide receiver could be in the offing.

The latest comes from ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler, who indicated on Sunday's edition of SportsCenter that front offices around the NFL continue to believe that Metcalf could be acquired at "the right price" despite the team's insistence that he's not on the trade block.

The Seahawks have been in a precarious situation this offseason, essentially tearing down the core of their roster without wanting to frame it as such publicly, perhaps understandably.

Like Metcalf, the team had insisted longtime quarterback Russell Wilson was not going anywhere -- until they surprised the league by sending him to the Denver Broncos.

While there are some important differences between the situations of Wilson and Metcalf -- notably that Wilson was long reported to be interested in moving on -- it's only reasonable to suspect that Metcalf too could be had given that the Seahawks are now facing a rebuild in a very tough NFC West.

Trading Metcalf could net the Seahawks yet more draft picks toward that rebuild, and there would likely be a considerable list of potential suitors for his services.

Already the Chiefs, Jets, Packers and Eagles have been cited as potential landing spots for the 2020 Pro Bowler, who has 29 touchdown receptions and an average of 14.7 yards per catch in 49 career games.
