Seahawks WR DK Metcalf speaks on his feelings towards Philadelphia
Seahawks WR DK Metcalf will always draw the ire of Eagles fans.
Metcalf fell down the board in the 2019 NFL Draft for several reasons, most notably due to injury concerns and a limited route tree.
The Eagles infamously passed on Metcalf in the second round in favor of JJ Arcega-Whiteside — who has totaled just 290 yards in his three-year career and is currently switching positions.
The “one that got away” label follows the star receiver whenever he comes to Philly. Fans voice their frustration through boos, and Metcalf doesn’t seem to be a fan of the treatment.

"I've got to make them pay."
Metcalf recently appeared on Kevin Hart’s “Cold as Balls” YouTube series and spoke briefly about his feelings towards Philadelphia:
“Who do you hate to play?” Hart asked.
“I hate going to Philly,” Metcalf said.
“You’re goddamn right. Eagles.” Hart responded.
Considering the Pro Bowl WR has over 3100 yards and 29 TDs since entering the league, it’s safe to assume the Eagles aren’t too fond of seeing him either.
Hopefully, the addition of Metcalf’s Ole Miss teammate AJ Brown will help mitigate the pain for Eagles fans.
