Wide receiver DK Metcalf has signed a three-year contract extension with the Seattle Seahawks and will cash in on the biggest signing bonus in NFL history for a player in his position .
The $72 million deal landed the 24-year-old an instant $30 million, according to the NFL Network. He will achieve full free agency at the end of the deal, which expires in 2026.
Metcalf will also become the Goodell League's sixth-highest-paid player annually among wide receivers.
In 49 NFL games, the former second-round pick has 216 catches for 3,170 yards. He also scored 29 majors.
Earlier this summer, Metcalf forced the Seahawks' hand by not attending their mandatory minicamp – a bargaining tactic that ultimately paid off.
