DK Metcalf didn’t attend the Seahawks’ mandatory minicamp last week and another wide receiver from the 2019 draft class appears to be on track to miss one this week.

Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post reports that Terry McLaurin travelled to Florida on Sunday to resume his workouts and that he is unlikely to attend Commanders minicamp. The three-day minicamp opens on Tuesday and McLaurin, who has been working on his own throughout the offseason, would be subject to over $95,000 in fines if he misses the entire camp.

McLaurin is looking for a new contract as he moves into the final year of his rookie deal. Jhabvala reports there’s been some progress on that front, but that the two sides remain far apart as the offseason program comes to an end.

McLaurin had 77 catches for 1,053 yards and five touchdowns during the 2021 season.

  1. All aboard !
    The wide receiver money train is leaving the station.
    No receiver wants to be left behind.

  2. McLaurin fat priority his rookie contact and has still been loyal to his club. Give him a 3 year $45 million deal or a trade.

  3. He’s an impact player that’s for damn sure. Maybe playing with Fartson Wentz is giving him other ideas

  4. I wouldn’t show up either… not to a team that doesn’t let people think freely

  5. Cousins then Sheriff. I hope this poor excuse of a front office has learned that tagging players doesn’t work. Either gat a deal done or trade him and at least get something in return. The Titans traded AJ. Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and stop letting players walk for nothing but compensatory picks. Get it done or trade him now.

  6. Make him play on his rookie contract for the 4th year, then franchise him for year 5, then let him walk or trade him for whatever’s available.

    Thoughts are free and unencumbered. It’s words and behaviors that have consequences; esp. when you’re an employee.

    Actually, thinking freely was was never an issue….what got him fined what’s saying it…. Freedom of speech sometimes doesn’t come with freedom of consequences ….. he definitely got what he deserved & in truth, got off easy…

  9. This is my childhood team and I continue to support them, although I hate the owner and tons of other things about them. My wish for Terry is that he doesn’t sign a long-term deal here because I like the kid a lot. This place is a mess, will never get better under this owner and he deserves far better!

  10. The Titans look some what wise for trading AJ Brown…. This dude, deebo, Metcalf no shows. They want 25mil a year for maximum of 15 touches a game, IF they stay healthy. Big if, nice trade…..

    Yet the guy who fined Del Rio has no issue working for a guy who has been accused of allowing a toxic workplace culture, financial underreporting and multiple sexual harassment accusations.

  12. The one bona fide star caliber player on this team, and they drag their feet on his deal. The franchise is an embarrassment.

  13. All these poor WRs who just can’t afford to put food on the table playing in the NFL. Maybe they will have to fall back on the degree they got in college!

  14. He has one more year left on his contract. If he thinks he got a raw deal he should fire his agent and have his new agent contact the team. If I ran a team I’d be more than fair about tearing up a bad contract, but I wouldn’t even answer the phone if it was the same agent that negotiated the first bad contract. I’d owe it to my player to insist that he had professional representation. An NFL player only has a small number of years to make as much money as possible. If the first contract was so poorly written that he’s willing to let the team suffer the consequences, I’d be an idiot to go down that same road. New agent, new deal. Same agent, same deal.

  15. Why don’t they blame the players union for agreeing to a rookie wage scale? The union agreed they should be paid as to where you were drafted. Do the busts in the draft give back any money…I don’t think so.

  16. Washington took a big gamble on Carson, it’s going to fail without Terry. And Terry knows it.

  17. Dude had 70 catches in a pass driven league. Reminds me of the days Anthony Thomas was held in high esteem because he rushed for 1k yards.

  18. The rationale for the rookie wage scale is unproven rookies should not eat up the salary cap ..the veterans who are proven should get the lion’s share of the money..this protects the teams for overpaying the busts..on the other hand redoing the fourth year of a rookie contract for a player who has over performed is only fair

  19. The NFL is starting to morph into the NBA as far as player empowerment goes. Trust me this isn’t a good thing.
