How much money could DK Metcalf make?
While Metcalf is still awaiting his contract extension, the 24-year-old has a clear idea of the kind of money he could make with his contract extension given some of the other receiver deals on offer this offseason.
Davante Adams was the first star receiver to be paid after the Green Bay Packers traded him to the Las Vegas Raiders. Its $141.25 million five-year extension included $67.5 million guaranteed money.
Former Kansas City Chiefs speedster Tyreek Hill also received a huge payday after being traded to the Miami Dolphins. The cheetah received a four-year extension for $120 million, with the Dolphins hoping Hill can be a top weapon for quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
Other receivers to receive major extensions this offseason include Super Bowl MVP Cooper Kupp, Raiders slots catcher Hunter Renfrow and former Metcalf teammate and new Philadelphia Eagles point guard AJ. Brown.
Considering all the money receivers have received this offseason, Metcalf is likely hoping for a nine-figure deal before the start of the 2022 season.
