Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf showed the haters what’s up on LinkedIn.

Two years into his NFL career, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf is not a bust. That was not a guarantee when he was a borderline first-round NFL Draft pick back in 2019.

Metcalf is coming off his first Pro Bowl season. While he had serious boom-or-bust potential coming out of Ole Miss in 2019, the second-round draft pick took to his LinkedIn profile earlier this week to share a Bleacher Report post his father sent his way last weekend. It is not petty if you can use it as motivation to fuel your competitive drive. Metcalf definitely remembers this post.

D.K. Metcalf has put in the work to be a successful NFL wide receiver

When Metcalf was coming out of Ole Miss, the Oxford native was labeled as a workout warrior who had no idea how to run a route. While Metcalf continues to be one of the most impressive athletic specimens in the league, he has quickly emerged as the Seahawks’ No. 1 wide receiver only two years into his career. He proved his initial doubters wrong and continues to do so.

In two NFL seasons, Metcalf has 141 catches for 2,203 yards and 17 touchdown receptions. Midway through his rookie season in Seattle, Metcalf really came on as a star performer. He took that up a notch in his second year in the league. While we have no idea what year three out of Ole Miss holds for him, we should expect him to produce at a high level for the NFC West contenders.

Metcalf has already proven his haters wrong, but that does not mean he will let up anytime soon.
