Witherspoon flexes on Metcalf after PBU in 49ers-Seahawks originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The Seattle Seahawks tried to convert on third down with a quick strike to star wideout DK Metcalf, but 49ers cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon fought through the contact and made an impressive pass breakup, forcing a three-and-out.
After the play, Witherspoon had to make sure Metcalf remembered his name by flexing and doing a little dance while squaring up with the wideout.

Witherspoon made his third consecutive start in place of Richard Sherman at cornerback, and wasn't about to back down from the formidable Metcalf.

In what has been a difficult season with injuries and inconsistent play for the entire 49ers secondary, Witherspoon has been holding Metcalf well below his typical production, as the wideout had just two catches for nine yards through three quarters.
