DK Metcalf's Future Looks Bright As He Celebrates 25th Birthday
Today, wideout DK Metcalf reaches the quarter-century mark, turning 25-years-old. Seattle's fourth-year receiver continues to blossom into one of the league's premiere young targets, as he rings in his birthday in reach of personal and historic milestones.
Through 13 games, Metcalf has recorded 72 receptions for 869 yards and six touchdowns. In addition to nearing his second 1,000-yard season, Metcalf has a shot to surpass 100 receptions for the first time. Metcalf was one of five receivers in league history to record at least 3,100 yards and 29 touchdowns in their first three seasons.
Now, Metcalf approaches his third-consecutive double-digit touchdown season as the Seahawks fight for a playoff berth. In November, Metcalf ranked No.13 on ESPN’s Top 25 under 25 rankings
After surpassing Seahawks Legend Darrell Jackson, Metcalf (4,039) ranks second behind Joey Galloway (4,122) for most yards in a player's first four seasons in franchise history. As Metcalf looks for his seventh-consecutive game with five or more receptions, Seattle looks to earn a playoff berth. Regardless of this season's outcome, they have a cornerstone piece to further build around at wideout.
