D.K. Metcalf is still fresh on the scene in the NFL, cooking up rookie-year production as one of Russell Wilson's favorite targets for the Seattle Seahawks.
When the day comes for the young wide receiver to hang up the cleats, however, he doesn't plan to stop cooking.
As he details in a new edition of "Plan for Amazing," the series from John Hancock and The Players Tribune that profiles NFL stars with plans for after the gridiron, the Seahawks' 21-year-old pass catcher is bent on using his hands after retirement -- albeit in the kitchen.
"In high school, I thought cooking was going to be my calling, because if football didn't work, I was going straight to culinary school in Chicago," Metcalf explains. "Experimenting with flavors was something that I wanted to do, making different flavors -- sweet and spicy, a little tart. I know when I'm done playing football, I want to open up my own restaurant."
