Is Terry McLaurin moving on from the Washington Commanders?

Written by Tanner Phifer

Multiple reports are the league say that Washington and star receiver Terry McLaurin have in fact made progress on an extension, but still remain far apart. I’d hate to see where their understanding was before the ‘progress’…yikes. McLaurin, 26, played college football at Ohio State University and was drafted by Washington in the third round of the 2019 NFL draft.

The two sides have been working on an extension since the end of the season, and I’m sure it’s not easy to come to an agreement with receivers making top dollar now. McLaurin is arguably one of the best in the NFL and seeing guys who have not proved as much as him make crazy cash is unreal. Christian Kirk is a prime example as he signed a four-year, $72M deal with the Jaguars. Guys like Davante Adams, A.J. Brown, and Cooper Kupp have all received massive extensions, and Terry wants his name on that list too.

Terry is heading into the final season of his rookie contract, and most extension talks begin around the end of a player third year, so it does seem that this is on track, but like mentioned above, this negotiation has been going on for a good while now, as the NFL season starts in just three months, and teams mandatory OTAs are starting up. I’ve heard multiple times that it’s not expected for Terry to show up to camp, so this could turn into a real bad situation very soon.
