Rookie WR DK Metcalf quickly learning Seahawks offense

[Russell] Wilson pointed to Metcalf's football knowledge when asked what about the rookie wide receiver has stood out most.

"Everybody knows about his ability to run and everything else, and jump and catch and all that," Wilson said. "You guys have been talking about that for months, but I think more than anything else, it's his brain and how he processes information and how quickly he understands it. He's really intelligent. He really understands the game really well. He takes coaching really well. He gets extra work. He's a legit pro wide receiver. He's everything that everybody was talking about in terms of what he's capable of and more."
