    "There’s a safety over the top of him, so he’s really not locking people down," Metcalf said of the Lions' 2020 No. 3 overall pick. "But he’s a good corner.”

    While DK Metcalf did not outright call Okudah a chump, he was not exactly taking the high road like Okudah did when discussing Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, saying they were "two great receivers.".

    Okudah also discussed how preparation is key in a battle with someone like Metcalf.

    "Get in the weight room (and) stretch your hamstrings out, it’s going to be a nice little battle."

    Last week against Justin Jefferson, Okudah was his shadow. Covering Jefferson across the field on 32 plays, according to NextGenStats.

    Jefferson was only targeted six times, catching only 3 passes for 14 yards, his lowest single-game total in his career.

    Okudah was informed of Metcalf's comments on Thursday and, again, took the high road.

    "Honestly, I"m not really overly concerned about it, I"m just focused on the game," he said. "I just try to keep the main thing the main thing and focus on the journey that I'm on right now."
