Talk about a Candy diet.
DK Metcalf, also known as DeKaylin Metcalf, is currently serving as a wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks. He became a part of the team in 2019 after being chosen as their second-round pick in the NFL Draft that same year.
Following his selection, DK officially signed a contract worth an impressive $4.6 million in May 2019.
During his rookie season, DK made a remarkable impact when he played his first regular season game and subsequently participated in the wild card round of the playoffs. In that particular game, he managed to achieve outstanding stats with seven catches for 160 yards and a touchdown.
DK’s performance broke the NFL record for the most receiving yards by a rookie in a playoff game.
DK’s talent and abilities did not go unnoticed, leading to a significant milestone in his career in July 2022.
He signed a lucrative three-year deal with the Seahawks, securing a whopping $72 million extension. This remarkable contract includes a guaranteed amount of $58.2 million and a staggering $30 million signing bonus.
This deal holds the distinction of being the largest contract ever signed by a wide receiver in the NFL.
Interestingly enough he’s known as one of the biggest beasts in the NFL, yet recent revelations about his diet are a real head scratcher. Apparently DK only eats one meal a day, and outside of that he just eats a crap load of candy.
