It appears that there’s a budding bromance in Seattle between Russell Wilson and DK Metcalf.
The two spent a large portion of the offseason together, taking trips to Mexico and San Diego. They worked out together, trained and ran routes in order to work on their chemistry.
“Our friendship has evolved like crazy,” Wilson said. “He’s one of my best friends for sure. I love his demeanor. I love who he is. He’s like a little brother to me.”
During their time in paradise, Wilson somehow learned that Metcalf couldn’t swim. The Seahawks quarterback helped remedy that problem.
“He hadn’t really learned how to swim yet, so I taught him how to swim,” Wilson said.
There’s nothing Wilson can’t do, it appears. Pro Bowl quarterback and certified swim instructor. Wilson mentioned that Greg Olsen and Will Dissly also joined the offseason workouts at one point.
As for Metcalf, the second-year wideout is expected to have a monster season after an impressive rookie campaign. He posted 900 yards and seven touchdowns in 2019 after being the last pick in the second round. As Wilson eluded to, Metcalf clearly is taking the right approach in terms of maximizing his God-given ability.
Metcalf’s bromance with Wilson would make for a nice subplot should he follow through on the lofty expectations placed upon him.
