With the Seahawks having beforehand mentioned they’d “no intention” of buying and selling quarterback Russell Wilson, earlier than buying and selling him, and with the Seahawks extra not too long ago utilizing the I-word relating to receiver DK Metcalf, there may be plenty of chatter and hypothesis that it may very well be traded.
Metcalf postponed the conversation earlier in the present day, saying he hadn’t heard something a couple of potential deal.
That he heard one thing doesn’t imply that nothing is occurring. Whereas Metcalf could don’t have any need to go to a possible new crew, anybody buying and selling for him will possible be keen to pay him out the door. It might are likely to make a man change his thoughts a couple of new crew, shortly.
The Jets proceed to make a whole lot of sense. They’ve the capital challenge; one in all their first-round picks beforehand belonged to the Seahawks. The Jets additionally tried to commerce for former Chiefs huge receiver Tyreek Hill. And the Jets have a well-armed younger quarterback in Zach Wilson, who may throw the ball repeatedly to Metcalf.
On high of every little thing else, Metcalf’s superhero physique and demeanor may make him a star in New York.
One factor we’ve discovered over the previous few weeks is that something can occur. And plenty of issues will. If the Seahawks had been keen to commerce Wilson, they might commerce anybody — Metcalf included — for the fitting worth.
