The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver will now test his speed from sprinters.
He’s competing at the USA Track and Field Golden Games and Distance Open, which will be Sunday in Walnut, California. USATF’s website lists Metcalf among the participants at the 100-meter dash.
Metcalf hinted at his participation in the event in a tweet on Monday.
In addition to starring in basketball and football at Oxford High School in Mississippi, the 6-foot-4, 229-pound Metcalf was a standout hurdler and long-jumper. He conducted a 4. 33-moment 40-yard dash in the 2019 scouting mix and attained a top speed of 22. 64 miles when he chased down Baker last October, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. At the time, that has been the second-fastest rate any NFL player had attained pursuit in 2020.
Metcalf made the Pro Bowl last season after grabbing 83 passes to get a franchise-record 1,303 yards)
