Scary Terry McLaurin: Minicamp Ghost
The Washington Commanders have recently undergone an entire rebranding, and are looking to make some big moves. It’s undeniable that they have some talent, with third-year defensive end Chase Young leading the defense, as well as young receiver Antonio Gibson on offense. Perhaps the most talented offensive player on the Commanders is Wide Receiver Terry McLaurin.
In his rookie season McLaurin racked up 919 receiving yards, averaging 15.8 yards per catch, earning him a spot on the All-Rookie team. Each of the following two years he had over 1,000 yards per season.
Terry McLaurin has yet to show up to mandatory mini-camps this summer, as he is unhappy with his contract. He continues to sit out in hopes of getting a better deal, or to be traded.
McLaurin is entering the last year of his rookie contract, set to make $2.79 million this season.
There’s no doubt that he’s outperformed his rookie contract, and is playing like a true number one receiver and future pro-bowler.
Commanders Head Coach Ron Rivera has assured fans that the 26-year-old will not be traded at any point. However, Rivera believes that a compromise can be reached. He stated, “We’re feeling pretty good and pretty confident at some point, this will get done.”
Playing with Quarterback Carson Wentz definitely does not help the situation. Wentz is reported to have had locker room problems with both the Colts and Eagles organizations. These issues were cited as a primary reason the former moved on from Wentz.
