Cannot tolerate such a violation of law’ – Huge embarrassment for DK Metcalf,Seahawks as they’re shockingly forced to suspend him!


Jets third-round rookie wide receiver Malachi Corley is getting a lot of NFL comparisons even before he steps on the field for New York.

Some already dubbed him the next Deebo Samuel because of their similarities in frame (Samuel is 6-foot, Corley is 5-11 and they both weigh 215 pounds) and play style. Corley himself called the comparison to Samuel “an honor.”

Corley has something else in common with a different receiver, though: Seahawks wideout DK Metcalf. Corley equaled Metcalf’s 27 bench press rep total during a pre-draft workout. And while he didn’t do it at the NFL Combe, that number would have beaten the top receiver at the combine — new Eagles wideout Ainias Smith — by six reps.

here’s nothing like a good first impression, and to make his a lasting one, DK Metcalf, a star wide receiver in the National Football League, employed what seems like an ancient piece of technology to prove he was serious about a $10 million investment. Metcalf was the first celebrity to ever present his ideas via PowerPoint to Tony Jacobs, CEO of Bazooka Candy Brands.

It sounds like Carolina Panthers rookie wide receiver Xavier Legette could be in for a big year if he lives up to a lofty comparison.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported on Tuesday that “some scouts see similarities” between Legette and Seattle Seahawks star receiver DK Metcalf, who excelled under former Seahawks offensive assistant and newly-hired Panthers head coach Dave Canales.

“Not quite the athlete Metcalf is but he’s got some game-breaking ability like that, and he can do a little more with versatility as a runner and pass-catcher,” an NFL personnel evaluator told Fowler.

At 6’3″ and 227 pounds, Legette has a similar size to Metcalf, who stands at 6’4″ and 225 pounds. Metcalf was a second-round pick in the 2019 draft and went on to become a two-time Pro Bowler, so Carolina is certainly hoping Legette will have a similar trajectory.

Legette, who was selected with the 32nd pick in the first round of the 2024 draft, spent five years at South Carolina and had a breakout season in 2023 with 71 catches for 1,255 yards and seven touchdowns.

Legette will provide a big target and a vertical threat for second-year quarterback Bryce Young, who is coming off a forgettable rookie season. The wideout should have a major role as a rookie despite the presence of Panthers veterans Diontae Johnson and Adam Thielen.

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Steelers are believed to be in the market for a veteran wideout, and according to one report, they’ve reached out to the Seattle Seahawks to see if D.K. Metcalf was a potential option.

Well, if they are thinking of adding the Seattle star, what would they need to give up to acquire him? FanSided’s John Buhler tossed out a wild trade scenario, handing Pittsburgh Metcalf but in exchange for multiple picks, and their current star wideout.

In Buhler’s trade scenario, the Steelers add Metcalf in exchange for a 2025 first-round pick, a 2025 third-round pick, a 2026 second-round pick and a 2026 fourth-round pick, and George Pickens.

“The reason to do this move if you are the Steelers is to get out of the frustrating 9-8 to 11-6 quagmire that head coach Mike Tomlin seems to find great comfort in,” Buhler writes. “Pittsburgh could honestly challenge Baltimore, Cincinnati and Cleveland for divisional supremacy by dealing for a wide receiver of Metcalf’s caliber. His rapport with Wilson could help the Steelers get to a 12 or a 13-win ceiling or so.”

Pickens still has two years left on his rookie contract and appears to be the team’s No. 1 receiver heading into 2024. While Metcalf is a star that’s already proven himself in the NFL, it’s hard to imagine the Steelers giving up their top weapon and as many picks as Buhler predicts for just one wideout.

However, this doesn’t necessarily translate to on-field excellence. Metcalf is great, but the other three receivers — Harry, Little and Foster — haven’t enjoyed successful NFL careers. Harry is deep on the Vikings’ depth chart after stints with the Patriots and Bears, Little played four seasons before being unable to hold onto a roster spot in 2018 and Foster last played in the CFL in 2013.

Metcalf’s blend of size, speed and strength are key attributes of his game in Seattle. He’s 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds and ran a 4.33 40-yard dash at the 2019 NFL Combine. Metcalf turned that skillset into three 1,000-yard and two 900-yard seasons. He’s also caught 43 touchdowns during his five-year career.

Corley, meanwhile, is under six feet and weighs less than 220 pounds. He also ran his 40 in the 4.45-4.47-second range, per the Jets team website. That’s not a bad thing, though. Corley’s game is all about possessing the ball and gaining yards after the catch. He named himself the “YAC King” after all.

Strength doesn’t automatically mean Corley will excel, either. But it will surely help he’s weaving through defenders in the middle of the field in 2024. All while staying at Aaron Rodgers’ guest house .

proposed trade would see the Seattle Seahawks unload their best player.

In a trade scenario proposed by Bleacher Report’s Gary Davenport, the Seahawks would trade star wide receiver DK Metcalf and a 2025 sixth-round pick to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for first and fifth-round picks in 2025 along with a second-round pick in 2026.

Davenport actually mentions Metcalf as the wide receiver that the Steelers should most target. However, he also finishes his thoughts by saying it would take a “Godfather” offer to lure Metcalf away from Seattle.
