As the Seattle Seahawks face questions regarding Russell Wilson's future, one of Wilson's top targets doesn't have any intentions on leaving Seattle. D.K. Metcalf will be entering the final year of his rookie contract in 2022, meaning talks of a contract extension will be looming.
Metcalf has no plans on leaving the Seahawks, hoping things will work out between him and the organization.
"Of course," Metcalf said regarding whether he wants to stay in Seattle, via Bob Condetta of the Seattle Times. "I'm not trying to leave, but we've got the Cardinals to focus on right now. You can hit me up later in the offseason if you need that question answered."
Metcalf reiterated his stance from prior to the season, when he told CBS Sports he wanted to stay with the team that drafted him in the second round three years ago.
"I want to help bring a championship to the Seahawks organization," Metcalf said. "Seattle is an incredible city and this fanbase is unmatched. I'm so grateful to be here and part of such a great culture. I try to not look too far into the future and really try to focus on what's happening in the present, and right now, I'm very happy being in Seattle."

Metcalf has caught 70 passes for 909 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Seahawks this season, averaging 13 yards per catch. Metcalf had an historic start for his career as he's one of only four players since the merger to record 2,200 receiving yards, 15 touchdowns, and average 15 yards per catch after his first two seasons -- which makes his 2021 numbers a bit surprising.
The yards per catch numbers are down from the first two years, but Metcalf still has been a touchdown machine since entering the league. His 29 touchdowns since the 2019 season are fifth in the NFL and his 3,112 receiving yards rank 11th in the league.
A big raise for Metcalf is coming, but whether it comes this offseason from the Seahawks remains to be seen.
