Seattle Seahawks’ DK Metcalf could be latest NFL player with potential Olympic bid

  Seattle Seahawks’ DK Metcalf could be latest NFL player with potential Olympic bid Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf turned heads with displays of speed on the gridiron. On Sunday, he’ll trade his helmet and pads for track spikes and run for a chance at the Olympic Trials. Metcalf is set to race in the 100m in this weekend’s USATF Golden Games and Distance Open at Mt. SAC in Walnut, California. NBC, NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app air live coverage on Sunday from 4:30-6 p.m. ET. Peacock streams live coverage from 3:15-6 p.m. ET and USATF.tv coverage airs from 2-4:30 p.m. ET and 10 p.m. ET onwards. Metcalf ran a 4.

It was all the way back in October of last year that Seattle Seahawks wideout D.K. Metcalf stunned the NFL world by chasing down Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker after an interception and tackled him, saving a would-be pick six.

The next day, the official Twitter account of USA Track and Field responded to the highlight that was going mega-viral, and said, “For everyone asking if we have a spot open on our relay team for [Metcalf and NFL] players are welcome to come test their speed against real speed next year at the Olympic Trials.”

Metcalf had this response:

Well, it’s next year. And it appears Metcalf is actually going to give the 100m a go on Sunday at the USATF Golden Games and Distance Open!

So that begs the question: how fast is he? And can he really qualify for Olympic Trials? Let’s break it all down:

One of the most interesting questions entering the NFL season for the Jacksonville Jaguars is how exactly Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell will utilize the talents of first overall draft pick Trevor Lawrence. © Provided by Touchdown Wire If we want to know how Lawrence will be used in the NFL, we have to first understand the offensive minds behind the scenes. Urban Meyer, most recently with Ohio State, ran a spread offence with a run-first variation (power and inside zone). Meyer usually ran a shotgun set with a sprinkle of the option.
