Rumor has it that the Seattle Seahawks denied an aggressive New York Jets trade offer for D.K. Metcalf

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf has been a hot name in NFL trade rumors, as he is going into the final year of his rookie deal and is up for a new contract extension.

Apparently, though, rumor has it that the Seahawks are uninterested in trading him.

According to host Howard Eskin of Philadelphia radio station 94WIP, Seattle is not entertaining any trade offers for Metcalf. Eskin says the Seahawks even turned away an offer from the New York Jets that included the 10th overall pick in this year’s draft.

“The Jets were going to offer, and Seattle knew it, the No. 10 pick in the first round. I’ve been told by multiple people when somebody calls Seattle about D.K. Metcalf (they said) ‘We’re not trading him. We’re not trading him.’ They don’t even take the offer,” Eskin said.

“They just say ‘Nope’ and they just shut it right down. You can’t even make an offer right now.”

The 10th overall pick originally belonged to Seattle but is owed to New York through the 2020 trade that sent Jamal Adams to the Seahawks.

Metcalf himself attempted to shut down trade rumors on Monday, tweeting, “Haven’t heard anything, per [myself]” in response to a tweet that claimed teams are calling Seattle about trading for him.

In other news, a huge domino fell for the wide receiver market on Wednesday morning. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs agreed to a four-year, $104 million extension with $70 million guaranteed, tying him to Buffalo through the 2027 season.

Diggs’ total of $70 million guaranteed ranks as the second-largest total in the NFL among wide receivers, beating out Davante Adams’ $65.7 million and trailing only Tyreek Hill’s $72.2 million.

This mega-deal continues the gargantuan explosion we have seen on the wide receiver market during the 2022 offseason. With Diggs’ numbers now in the books, perhaps the table is set for Metcalf and other up-for-extension receivers like A.J. Brown, Deebo Samuel, and Terry McLaurin to begin discussing new contracts with their teams.

Maybe Seattle doesn’t want to take any more calls from Joe. They are probably still shamed by the Adams deal.
