Tennessee Titans’ wide receiver AJ Brown believes Seattle Seahawks’ wide receiver DK Metcalf may be from out of this world. Brown believes the Seahawks wide receiver is also just “built” different after posting career highs against the Philadelphia Eagles.

On Twitter, Brown wrote, “The stuff dk does, I’m not even surprised. He was built on a different planet.”

Based upon Metcalf’s record, Brown may very well be right. The young athlete continues to be a tour de force in his second year with Seattle. Both Metcalf and quarterback Russell Wilson form a dangerous duo when on the field together. In Monday’s (Nov. 30) matchup against the Eagles, the two lead the Seahawks to a 23-17 victory in Philadelphia.

“It’s kind of like coming home,” Metcalf told ESPN. He also helped secure the team’s victory by capturing the Eagles’ onside kick. “A place that had a chance to draft me but didn’t, so I’ve got to make them pay.”

In last night’s MNF matchup, Metcalf posted career highlights, catching 10 passes for 177 yards. Previously, he had 160 yards in January in another matchup against the Eagles. For that game, Metcalf set the NFL rookie postseason record. For this season, Metcalf leads the league with 1,039 receiving yards across 11 games.

DK Metcalf Is Chasing After an NFL Record

Previously, Metcalf and Wilson revealed they are chasing after Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison’s record. Currently, Manning and Harrison share the record for the most touchdowns between a quarterback and receiver in NFL history. Both Manning and also Harrison scored 114 touchdowns while a part of the Indianapolis Colts.

“I keep that in the back of my mind every time I go play, every time I go practice,” Metcalf said. “That’s the record that has to be taken down by us. That’s who we’re chasing.”

Wilson also commented on pursuing what some, Manning included, consider an “unbreakable” record.

“Hopefully me and him can become a little Jerry Rice and Joe Montana,” Wilson told Yahoo News in October. “He’s only 22, think about that. So, what I mean by that is his work ethic. He’s old school in his approach. We trained all offseason together. We spent hours upon hours just throwing. If it wasn’t perfect, we just went over and over and over. He’s still growing and I’m glad I get to be a part of the process with him.”
