The Seattle Seahawks have entered the third phase of their off-season program, with several volunteer OTAs already in the books and mandatory mini camps starting Tuesday afternoon. However, despite the team’s arrival on the field to begin the first three days of junior camp, according to a report by NFL Insider Ian Rapoport, the Hawks do not have one of their most outstanding players.
Sources: # hawks WR star DK Metcalf is not in the mandatory junior camp, as contract talks have yet to yield a new deal. He continues to rehabilitate his injury in Los Angeles.

A second-round pick in 2019, DK Metcalf is eligible for an extension after finishing his first three seasons in the NFL with the 20th-most receiving position of any recipient in league history up to that point in their career. His college buddy, AJ Brown, who is also represented by the same agent, Tory Dandy, was given a four-year, $100 million contract extension as part of a deal to the Philadelphia Eagles earlier in the season, and there has been speculation circulating about Metcalf getting that extension out. season too. Whether Metcalf’s absence is represented by simply staying in Southern California to continue rehab after off-season surgery on his foot, or if this is a statement regarding the status of his contract.
Anyway, for those wondering, Dandy also represents Deebo Samuel of the San Francisco 49ers, who was reported to be present, but did not participate, in the mandatory Niners minicamp.
