Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf signed a three-year, $72 million extension with the franchise this week, and he admitted that he "bluffed" about staying in Seattle during contract negotiations.

"No because ... something was going to get done," Metcalf said when asked if it was any more stressful watching other top receivers get paid, per ESPN's Brady Henderson. "It was going to be here ... as much as I bluffed to John [Schneider]. Just to let y'all know, I wanted to be here. I wanted to play here and I'm just glad that we got something done.
