Washington Commanders Sign Former Chiefs Standout Wide Receiver

Former wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs and Chicago Bears, Byron Pringle, has signed a one-year contract with the Washington Commanders just before the start of their training camp.

During the 2021 season, he had an impressive performance, catching 42 passes for 568 yards and five touchdowns while Eric Bieniemy served as the offensive coordinator.

This existing relationship with Bieniemy may be beneficial for Pringle in his new team.

With the Commanders, Pringle is set to reunite with Bieniemy, which could give him an edge during training camp and the preseason as he vies for a spot on the roster.

However, the team already boasts a solid wide receiver depth chart, led by Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel, and Jahan Dotson.

As a result, Pringle's impact may be limited unless injuries affect the team's receiving corps.

Nonetheless, his familiarity with Bieniemy's system could prove to be a valuable asset, providing the Commanders with a reliable option if the need arises during the upcoming season.

Over his four-year career, Pringle has amassed 77 receptions for 1,033 yards and nine touchdowns on 109 targets across 57 games played. Photo Credit: Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports
