DK Metcalf serious about making a run at the Olympics in the 100m

The day after he sprinted more than 100 yards to deny Budda Baker’s bid for a pick six, DK Metcalf received an invitation to prove that he was more than just football fast.

USA Track and Field sent a tongue-in-cheek tweet encouraging the Seattle Seahawks receiver to test himself against “real speed” at the upcoming Olympic Trials.

That jab must have stoked Metcalf’s competitive fire and rekindled his dreams of representing the U.S. in the Olympics. Only days later, Metcalf’s agent dialed USA Track and Field’s Adam Schmenk and revealed his client was serious about training for the 100 meters.
