Contract Negotiation NFL Players Sports Agents

DK Metcalf Transitions to New Representation

DK Metcalf has elected for new representation following the completion of his sophomore NFL season. Previously represented by Todd France and Ben Renzin, Metcalf is now in agreement with Tory Dandy, the Co-Head of CAA Sport’s football division. 

The Seahawk’s star wide receiver has firmly asserted himself into the conversation as one of the best in the business. DK finished the 2020 season with 83 receptions, 10 touchdowns, and a franchise record-setting 1,303 receiving yards. The statistics accrued this year prove his praiseworthy rookie campaign was anything but a fluke. The Ole Miss alum’s formidable play also earned him his first of what will likely be numerous All-Pro honors. 

Metcalf just completed year two of his rookie four-year contract. He won’t be eligible to begin negotiations for his second contract until the conclusion of the 2021 season, but he will undoubtedly be in a great position when that time comes with Dandy and CAA on his side. For the time being, DK remains one of the league’s biggest bargains considering his fantastic production. Next season he is due to receive only about $912,000 from Seattle, according to Spotrac. Once his rookie contract expires, Metcalf is inevitably going to sign for a substantial and well-deserved increase in salary. One could speculate DK and his representation will contend for a number around $20 million per year, a competitive rate compared to the NFL’s other dominant receivers. Metcalf comes as an addition to an already impressive client list claimed by CAA, including Marshon Lattimore, Chris Godwin, and former Rebels teammate A.J. Brown.
