Kerr in awe of Metcalf's insane TD-saving tackle of Baker originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
If an athlete does something to impress Steve Kerr, they know they've accomplished something extraordinary.
That's exactly what Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf did on Sunday Night Football.
Baker looked like he was going to return the interception nearly 100 yards for a touchdown. But Metcalf had other ideas.
Metcalf's insane chase-down tackle left the Warriors coach in awe.
Metcalf is a freak athlete chiseled out of granite. At the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine, the former Mississippi star ran a 4.33 40-yard dash, one of the fastest times at the event.
On Sunday, Metcalf reached a peak speed of 22 miles per hour in pursuit of Baker.
After the Cardinals stunned the Seahawks 37-34 in overtime, Baker could only tweet respect to Metcalf.
