Seahawks' Updated Salary Cap for 2022 After DK Metcalf's $72M Contract

With Russell Wilson gone to the Denver Broncos, DK Metcalf is now arguably the face of the Seattle Seahawks.

It seems it will be that way for the foreseeable future.

On Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the wide receiver signed a three-year, $72 million contract extension with the only NFL team he has ever known. The deal includes $58.2 million in guarantees and a $30 million signing bonus, which is the highest ever for a player at his position.

Schefter also noted the contract means Metcalf can become a free agent at 27 years old, so another megadeal may eventually be in store for him.
