The Seattle Seahawks remain optimistic about getting a long-term deal done with DK Metcalf.

Metcalf, who is in line for a huge extension, did not attend this week's minicamp.

"A decision that he had to make," Pete Carroll said of the wide receiver's absence. "We missed him. He had done a nice job of contributing, being a part of everything we had done and then he just is not here. So I can't say much about for what he hasn't done here, but we'd love to have him with us."

The Seahawks deemed Metcalf's absence from minicamp unexcused, which means he's subject to fines of more than $93,000 for missing all three days.
