Commanders sign Jahan Dotson

USA TODAY Sports

The Commanders have their top choice of the 2022 draft under contract.

Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post reports that wide receiver Jahan Dotson has signed with the team. It’s a four-year deal with a team option for the fifth season for the 16th overall pick.

Dotson capped his time at Penn State with 91 catches for 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns during the 2021 season. He has the second-most catches, fourth-most receiving yards, and is tied for the second-most receiving touchdowns in school history.

Dotson, who missed some rookie minicamp time to attend his college graduation, is expected to join Terry McLaurin as top receiving options in Washington.

  1. Jahan is a good player, but I was surprised at how high he was drafted.

  2. The pride of Nazareth Pa, go get em Jahan.

    I too was surprised at how high he went. I am rooting for him because he’s a local kid. However I’m a huge Ohio State fan living in PSU country.

    Jahan is not in the league of the Buckeye or Bama WRs.

  3. Well, it’s good that it ain’t so because you say so. Let’s watch him play.

  4. “Jahan is not in the league of the Buckeye or Bama WRs.”, this may be true, but he is a “Z” receiver, not an “X”. The Commanders need that skill set more so that what was available in WRs.

  5. If he is marginally productive in his first year, it’s a win. Skins have a good group of pass catchers – Terry, Curtis Samuel, Cam Sims, Dyami Brown, plus Logan Thomas, McKissic and Antonio Gibson. Even with Wentz, I think Taylor is a quality QB. He forced some throws early in the season, probably because the defense couldn’t stop anyone and we wanted to make a play.
