Seahawks news for Sunday: DK Metcalf tweets at Lamar Jackson
By Lee Vowell
In Seattle Seahawks news for your Sunday, DK Metcalf and Lamar Jackson have a funny Twitter exchange. But one former Seahawk gets arrested.
And for 12s, the news that training camp starts on July 26th is almost as good. But we aren’t there yet and current and former players still have time to make news that isn’t good.
But let’s start with some happiness and news that involves likely the new face of the franchise.
Seahawks news involves DK Metcalf tweeting and Duane Brown being arrested
DK Metcalf and Lamar Jackson exchange tweets
Metcalf is a strong guy. Maybe the term “physical freak” is a bit overused but when it comes to Metcalf it applies. He is fast and strong and can leap entire buildings (OK, maybe that last part isn’t true but we don’t know that Metcalf can’t do it).
The exchange on Twitter between Metcalf and Jackson, the current quarterback of the Baltimore Ravens (but who knows?; maybe he will end up in Seattle one day), started when Jackson tweeted a photo of himself during a workout. Metcalf responded humorously.
But Jackson retorted
To be fair, both these guys are leagues in better shape than I ever will be. Part of the find with the good-natured tweets is that it is two of the best players in the NFL having fun. So it’s fun to just sit back and read.
Former Seahawks LT Duane Brown gets arrested
In much more real and bad news, Duane Brown, who played for the Seahawks from midway through 2017 through 2021, was arrested when he had a gun in his luggage while boarding a plane at LAX. The gun was not loaded.
The charge against Brown is possession of a concealed firearm. He was taken into custody by the Los Angeles police department after the gun was found.
