Metcalf: Star On The Field, In The Kitchen

Hustle. Sizzle. Savor.

These are the three words DK Metcalf thinks about when looking forward to his plan after football. The Seahawks rookie receiver recently sat down with The Player's Tribune and John Hancock to talk about his passion for cooking and how he plans to open his own restaurant in the future.

Metcalf says that he found his passion for food while he was in high school and had planned to go to culinary school in Chicago if football hadn't worked out.

"I know when I'm done playing football, I want to open up my own restaurant… I'm more than just an athlete, I can be a chef or a restaurateur if I want to," explains Metcalf when asked about his future.

On top of the high school dreams, the first-year receiver also worked at "probably the only Italian restaurant in Oxford Mississippi," said Metcalf. "Working at the restaurant, I used to always just sit in the back, eat the bread and watch the chefs cook and how they can, like, come together, basically like a football team."

Keep an eye out for DK as he continues to make an impact for the Seahawks both on and off the field. And who knows, maybe one day you'll find yourself dining in one of Metcalf's famous restaurants.
