Seahawks new CB Tre Brown is already challenging DK Metcalf


Every defensive player has that one player in mind they are raring to go against.

At his Pro Day nearly one month earlier, Tre Brown, the Seahawks No. 137 overall fourth-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, named one receiver he couldn't wait to go against in the NFL. 

That wideout is now his teammate on the Seahawks.

“Definitely D.K. Metcalf,” Brown said in March. “They talk all about his physical traits, how he’s fast. He’s just a beast. That’s definitely a guy that I want to go up and show what I can do against him and try to hush the silence and just be competitive...

Am I faster than him? If we add it up, definitely. You can tell him right there, if you’re close to D.K. Metcalf, tell him we can line that up, definitely.

Now Brown will get his opportunity to play against a monster among men in Metcalf. Iron sharpens iron. 

Before hearing his name called on Saturday afternoon, Brown, a 5-foot-10, 185-pounder out of Oklahoma, was a second-team All-Big 12 selection as a senior, when he recorded three interceptions and six pass breakups in 10 games.


Brown was also a special teams standout for Oklahoma, earning second-team All-Big 12 honors as a kick returner in 2018.
