Washington Wide Receiver Unhappy with Contract Negotiations

Terry McLaurin, the Washington Commanders' 2019 third-round draft pick and number one receiver, will not be attending the team's mandatory minicamp. 

Washington and McLaurin are still struggling to come to an agreement concerning the receiver's contract. 

McLaurin is in the final year of his four-year rookie deal and is looking to settle a long-term contract with the team. 

In his first three seasons, McLaurin has 222 receptions, 3,090 receiving yards, and 16 touchdowns making him Washington's primary source of offense. 

Several NFL wide receivers landed 20-million dollar annual deals this offseason. McLaurin, who has been making $2.79 million/year up to this point, likely feels he has more than earned a similar paycheck. 

However, whether he lands the deal or not, McLaurin's absence from the camp has nonetheless earned him a hefty fine.
