Seattle Seahawks wide receiver DK Metcalf came to the defense of quarterback Drew Lock on Saturday following a tweet from the US Open Tennis Twitter account.

The tweet prompted a wild response from the US Open Tennis account.

“Aight Chill, we get the point @usopen,” he wrote.
The US Open account said he didn’t expect the tweet to explode so much. The organization has listed where fans can buy tickets for the final Grand Slam event of the season, which will take place from August 29 to September 11.
Lock will be in contention for the starting quarterback position along with Geno Smith. He was a second-round pick of the Broncos in 2019. He played in 24 games for Denver and started 21 of them. He had 4,740 passing yards, 25 touchdowns and 20 interceptions during that span. He led the league with 15 interceptions in 2020.
