Another young receiver has landed big money.

The Commanders and Terry McLaurin have agreed to terms on a three-year extension, per multiple reports.

The accounts as to the numbers vary, a bit. The maximum value of the three-year extension is $71 million or $70 million, depending on which Twitter account you peruse.

He was due to make $3.04 million in 2022. He’ll make up to $74.04 million, or up to $75.04 million, over the next four years — barring another new deal.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that McLaurin gets a $28 million signing bonus, and $34.6 million fully guaranteed at signing. Another $12.5 million becomes fully guaranteed in March 2023.

The deal includes escalators of $250,000 for 2023, 2024, and 2025 for making it to the Pro Bowl the prior year, per Rapoport.

McLaurin had skipped the mandatory minicamp while awaiting his deal. Coach Ron Rivera had said he won’t be traded.

The McLaurin deal leaves D.K. Metcalf, Deebo Samuel, and Hollywood Brown as the last three accomplished fourth-year receivers without new contracts. Brown is under contract through 2023; the others are signed through 2022.

  1. Congratulations! He deserves it!! These are the kind of stories we need to be hearing out of D.C. HTTR!

  2. Is he really THAT good? Seems like WR is becoming a position to draft high and use up all the cheap years before letting other teams pay the stupid money.

  3. N’Keal Harry was drafted up there with those guys. Why isn’t he in line to get a pay raise?

  4. McLaurin is a very good WR. If Christian Kirk and Zay Jones can get that type of money then McLaurin is a no brainer. Good on him getting paid even if he still has to play for Washington.

  5. Good contract for both teams. Comms lock in a set price for their best player and mclaurin can renegotiate in three years. To the haters: todays overpay is tomorrows bargain. Remember when they wouldn’t pay cousins 20 million? Make no mistake this was a great signing.

  6. How much money is that new TV money? These contracts are getting insane!

  7. “The McLaurin deal leaves D.K. Metcalf, Deebo Samuel, and Hollywood Brown as the last three accomplished fourth-year receivers without new contracts.” Did you forget about Diontae Johnson? He has very comparable numbers to those three and played with a very limited quarterback.

  8. The pressure on the 49er’s just got bigger to do something, Jimmy about to be gone soon.

  9. Have to get rid of Jimmy before you can sign Deebo, for cap reasons, don’t you? Or structure Deebo such a way that he has almost no cap effect this year (hard to envision that). And extend Nick Bosa as well LOL

  10. Great signing! This was a key move for Wentz to be successful! Cant say they didnt give Wentz the talent to succeed! Commies are loaded at receiver!!!….you can hate all you want to but this was a great move by Washington!

  11. Terry rules – great player and great young man. I’m happy he got paid.

    All that said, I’m sorry that he got drafted by this trash organization.

  12. LFG – any chance of carson being successful in DC is dependent on this man. All around professional and extremely productive considering the QB carousal he’s had to deal with. Well deserved!

    Today’s overpay is tomorrow’s bargain… until they start demanding a new contract before their even in a contract year.

  14. People keep talking about how he deserved it and is so underrated but he really is not that great. His numbers are average at best. I get he played with crap QB’s on crap teams but numbers do not lie.

  15. Some people on here are saying that Washington paided too much for a receiver that are a dime a dozen but when you have receivers like AJ Brown and Christian Kirk getting big time deals the market was set and Washington had to follow suit and plus McLaurin had better stats than those two guys and since Terry McLaurin has been with us he has been a solid player… kudos to my team for getting this deal done…next up what to do about the Daron Payne situation???

  16. Diontae Johnson. He is also due. Not sure if they can squeeze him and Boswell their FG kicker onto their remaining cap this year. Tight. That’s a big money wide receiver deal.

    I think he really is THAT good. As an Eagles fan, he’s the only guy on that team who scares me every game. Once they made the trade for Wentz, they had no choice but to re-sign this guy. I still think Wentz is a stiff, but at least he doesn’t have an excuse to fail now.

  18. Have to get rid of Jimmy before you can sign Deebo, for cap reasons, don’t you? Or structure Deebo such a way that he has almost no cap effect this year (hard to envision that). And extend Nick Bosa as well LOL

    That’s not hard to envision at all. Teams frequently structure new deals so that the cap hit in that year drops very low. Plus he’s a younger player. There’s no reason the can’t backload his deal assuming they think he’ll be healthier than he has been.

  19. I imagine the inconsistent and dropped-pass-at-worst-possible-time Diontae Johnson will be looking for similar money. Good luck, Diontae. The Steelers will not commit that insane money to him, and have already planned for his departure by drafting Pickens and Calvin Austin THIS year.

    Wentz had 27td/7int last year and turned Michael Pittman into a 1000 yard WR after he looked like a potential bust prior to Wentz. It’s not like Terry has played with good QB prior to this.
