Richard Sherman said earlier this offseason that he thinks Washington Football Team wide receiver Terry McLaurin would be a special player with some help around him at the position and the team has made a move to help find out if that’s the case.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Washington has reached an agreement with former Panthers wideout Curtis Samuel. It is a three-year deal worth $34.5 million.

It won’t be the first time that Samuel and McLaurin are part of the same receiving corps. They were both at Ohio State in 2015 and 2016.

Samuel was limited to 22 games in his first two seasons, but only missed one game the last two years. He had 77 catches for 851 yards and three touchdowns and 41 carries for 200 yards and two touchdowns for the Panthers last season.

  1. Washington going to dominate the NFC East as Philly falls apart and the Cowboys & Giants go nowhere.

  2. As a Panthers fan I have to see him go, Washington is going to love this guy. This is a great pickup.

  3. I’m not a fan of Fitzpatrick, he is not a QB that will elevate your football team. Day one he is the worst QB in your division. Fitzpatrick might get you 3 or 4 wins before defenses catch on. Also, there isn’t an INT that Fitzpatrick doesn’t like.

  4. So far so good in free agency. Gonna suck losing Kerigan, but he deserves to start somewhere.

  5. This is going to be an awfully fun team to watch. You have Chase Young and Montez Sweat wreaking havoc on one side of the ball and Fitzmagic hurling it downfield to two guys with 4.34 and 4.31 speed.

  6. This team is starting to look like adults are building the team. I’m amazed that two decades of splash signings that crash during the season are being replaced by solid but not exciting players.

    I can’t wait to see Fritz torching defenses – we know he can heave the ball even with his head being twisted off his body. Now if Washington can build an offensive line that can protect him.

    I consulted my attorney to see if Washington and I can reconcile our prior 37 year marriage and to become team and fan again. Now that that jerk Alice Smith (one of the most overrated and underwhelming clowns I have ever known) is gone, I am willing to finally have something to cheer about. I loathe two air passing yard plays that Alice was famous for in Washington. I want to see some magic. And make it with fur!

  7. Good signing. Wanted him in Green Bay. $12M/yr would have been too rich for the Packers (depending on how the contract is structured). Not sure Turner is going to be creative enough to maximize his ability, it I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

  8. Great signing for wft. Also him and kyle allan had really good chemistry back in carolina.

  9. Looking like the WFT is having a great off-season. This team will be tough to beat. Watch out!
