Seattle Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf had a phenomenal year last season.
And you have to remember, he is now entering the third season of his NFL career.
Finishing off his sophomore season, Metcalf had 83 receptions for 1,303 receiving yards (Seahawks franchise record) with 10 touchdowns to cap off the year.
Obviously, the team did not finish the season on a high-note with losing to the Los Angeles Rams in the Wild Card game.
But it did bring promise to what Metcalf and Wilson and bring to the offense next season. With no offense coordinator Shane Waldron coming in, the hope is that they still gear to plays towards the dynamic duo.
The offseason is here, and it’s already been a whirlwind of moves being made from a lot of different teams.
It’s also time for players, such as Metcalf, to set some goals for the next NFL Season.
On Friday, BleacherReport’s own Adam Lefkoe was joined by Metcalf and discussed some of the goals that he has for next season.
I gotta get Megatron’s (Calvin Johnson) single-season receiving record, I gotta get that. Gotta break the touchdowns record for the Seahawks. I gotta beat Tyler’s record that he broke last year. I’m trying to have my name in the record books cause that is the only way I'm going to be remembered.
Those are pretty high bars to set for yourself, but Metcalf wants to be remembered in time and receive a Golden Jacket when his career is over.
The single receiving record, which Johnson holds, is at 1,964 yards. The single-season touchdown record for the Seahawks is set at 14 by Doug Baldwin, and Lockett’s reception record for the Seahawks was set last year at 100 receptions.
Metcalf is most certainly setting the bar very high for himself. When you have Russell Wilson as your quarterback, it makes perfect sense to do that.
The season is months away from starting, but it will be worth it to see how Metcalf performs with Wilson during the season with all these goals he has set for himself.
