DK Metcalf's speed will be on display Sunday at the USATF Golden Games and Distance Open.

The Seattle Seahawks wide receiver will be competing in the 100m dash against a group that includes 2016 Rio Olympian Mike Rodgers and Ronnie Baker, who currently ranks second in the United States with a time of 9.94 seconds, according to NBC Sports.

Metcalf, a hurdler in high school, hasn't said whether he's trying to qualify for the U.S. Olympic Trials in June, but he teased the possibility last year in response to a tweet from USA Track and Field.

Metcalf would likely need to break 10.2 seconds to qualify for the Trials. He would automatically qualify with a 10.05.

The 23-year-old had 83 receptions for 1,303 yards and 10 touchdowns last season, his second in the NFL.
