DK Metcalf may find it harder to maintain a "nobody's" mind when teammates and coaches continue to talk about him, showing him what he is capable of doing on a daily basis. Quarterback Russell Wilson found Metcalf "really, really special" during the OTAs in June and that the excitement has not diminished since the start of the training camp.
"He can do many games," Wilson said. "You've seen it in the game, it's a fingernail of two massive big games, I think it's going to be something special for us, I think the key to it is a key to any great, highly acclaimed player, and everyone has to be really humble and keep on working.This is just the key.He has great humility.He has a great attitude.He is confident.He is competitive as you can imagine.He has all the sporting capabilities of the world and therefore is It's our job to give him a chance and make him play. "
Wilson had Metcalf and some of Seattle's capable Los Angeles location players training for the summer vacation, and Metcalf's work ethic immediately impressed him.
I do not think his morale and mentality will ever be questioned, "Wilson said," I think he'll be ready to roll and everything else. I also think he is disappointed because I think people have doubted him and he has a little story. People thought he could not play football or whatever, because of his neck and other things. Sometimes it's the people with the stories that really pop up and shine because they have something to overcome.
Metcalf caught only one pass for eight yards on four goals overnight at the Seattle start-up against the Denver Broncos on Thursday. But as Wilson noted, he was also very close to two large catches. Cornerback De'Vante Bausby flipped Metcalf in the heel when a Geno-Smith pass sailed just under his influence for a possible 40-meter win. Then, late in the first half, another deep ball from Smith slid just before the goal line through his fingers, and Isaac Yiadom won 30 yards.
said. "He's done a few of those catches already, catching on the heels with the man and nearly catching the first, and the second just a stone's throw away, you could see he's behind him as we hoped He is a big threat. "
