According to a report by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, D.K. Metcalf is not present at the team facility for the start of Seahawks minicamp, which begins later today.

Bob Condotta at the Seattle Times has confirmed Metcalf is not around.

Metcalf is entering the final year of his rookie deal, so it’s possible this is related to his contract situation.

Then again, Metcalf showed up for voluntary OTAs. Skipping mandatory minicamp after that would be odd.

It’s possible Metcalf has an excused absence due to the rehab work he’s been getting done on his foot.

We will likely find out in a couple hours when Pete Carroll speaks with the beat reporters after practice is over at the VMAC.

Update:

So much for that idea. Condotta followed up with another report that states Metcalf’s absence is not excused.

Even still, it’s too early to panic about Metcalf’s contract. It’s in the team’s best interest to sign him to a lucrative long-term deal and we believe it will eventually get done.
