Terry McLaurin, WR (WAS)

Lands three-year extension

McLaurin agreed Tuesday on a three-year contract extension with the Commanders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

The deal includes up to $71 million in new money and a $28 million signing bonus, with Washington's investment placing McLaurin among the NFL's top-five highest-paid wideouts. As a result, the 26-year-old -- whose rookie contract had been slated to expire after the coming season -- is now signed with the team through the 2025 campaign. Through 17 games in 2021, the 2019 third-rounder logged a 77-1,053-5 stat line on 130 targets. He continues to profile as the top option in a wide receiver corps that also includes Curtis Samuel and 2022 first-rounder Jahan Dotson, with McLaurin's fantasy prospects potentially boosted by new QB Carson Wentz.
