Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf has been called for five penalties through two weeks, including a taunting penalty in the team’s season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
Head coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Metcalf “needs to calm down a little bit” as he’s been a bit too wild during the first two weeks of the season.
On Wednesday, Metcalf agreed with that assessment and said he’s got to rein it in.
“He’s completely right,” Metcalf said, via Brady Henderson of ESPN.com. “I’m an emotional person. I play with a competitive edge and I’m not trying to lose anything whether that’s an argument or a route, anything. So I’m just going to compete my butt off … get close to the line but don’t cross it.”
