Here Is How $72 Million Pro Bowler And Wide Receiver, DK Metcalf May Move On From…

$72 million Pro Bowler and wide receiver, DK Metcalf may move on from the Seattle Seahawks in a blockbuster trade this offseason. Rumors are heating up since the Steelers are working the phones in an attempt to land a top-flight receiver. The other receivers they’re reaching out to are Brandon Aiyuk and Courtland Sutton, it seems like they haven’t been able to land one since trading Diontae Johnson to the Panthers. However, Metcalf sounds like an intriguing option for the Steelers due to his previous connection with Russell Wilson.

Adding any of these receivers would bolster the Steelers’ offense since trading away their veteran offensive piece. The Metcalf trade would make sense since the team is rebuilding under new head coach Mike Macdonald, but their starters remain intact. However, it would be smart if the Seahawks wouldn’t move on from the two-time Pro Bowler but for the right price, it is possible. One source says they expect a Metcalf trade to happen after the post-June 1 designation which gives teams help to free dead money that could count against the team after their release.

Aiyuk and Sutton have a higher chance of being traded this offseason than Metcalf due to the team’s salary cap constraints. However, one could consider that the Metcalf trade discussions can become interesting, especially the Pro Bowler not voicing concern over his contract. It would be a huge shock since the Stefon Diggs trade to the Texans, leaving everyone thinking that any trade is possible for the right price. Seattle would clear $17 million in 2024 cap space if the Pro Bowler is traded after June 1, and $22 million in 2025.
