Commanders' Terry McLaurin Won't Attend Minicamp

The Washington Commanders will not have its top wide receiver at minicamp this week, according to ESPN’s Senior NFL Insider, Adam Schefter.

Terry McLaurin faces a maximum fine of $95,877 if he misses all three days of minicamp as he seeks a new deal.

The 27-year-old is reportedly looking for a contract extension in the same ballpark as other recent deals signed by NFL receivers.

Tyreek Hill signed a massive contract with the Miami Dolphins after getting traded by the Kansas City Chiefs. Hill is set to get $120 million over four years. The Las Vegas Raiders opened the vault for Davante Adams after reaching a trade agreement with the Green Bay Packers. Adams is getting $141.25 million over five years from the Raiders. A.J. Brown locked in a four-year/$100 million extension with the Philadelphia Eagles after a trade from Tennessee. 

McLaurin already has over 3,000 yards receiving through the first three seasons of his NFL career. The Ohio State alum has shown his high-skill level with less than stellar quarterbacks and could have a breakout year with Carson Wentz under center.

The odds are against McLaurin’s team making the playoffs this year. FanDuel Sportsbook has Washington at +166 to reach the postseason and -205 to come up short.
