The Commanders signed Jahan Dotson to his rookie deal. Terry McLaurin due for extension.

Written by Tanner Phifer

The Washington Commanders have signed first round pick Jahan Dotson, out of Penn State, to a four year, $15.048 million guaranteed contract with an $8.124M signing bonus, according to Aaron Wilson.

They’re bolstering their wide receiver room alongside rising star Terry McLaurin, who is due for a massive extension. Reports say that the Commanders were not big spenders in free agency, so that the team could focus on a big extension for McLaurin.

Dotson isn’t known for his size but he has great speed and great hands, which is something the Commanders as a team have lacked. An example is being former Washington receiver Josh Docston who has a career catch rate of 50%. They’re looking forward to having two primary targets in the offense for new QB Carson Wentz.
