Today's mandatory minicamp for Commanders is underway. Wide receiver Terry McLaurin will not be there. Coach Ron Rivera doesn't seem to be too concerned.
Rivera stated today that McLaurin's team and McLaurin’s camp were negotiating a new contract. He sounded confident that everyone will be happy with the deal.
Rivera stated, "I believe that we are headed in the right direction."
Rivera stated that although McLaurin isn't working with Carson Wentz, he believes it won't be a problem for them this season. Rivera said that McLaurin is trying to maximize his value in the final year on his rookie contract.
Rivera stated, "We understand Terry's intentions."
McLaurin's three Washington seasons have seen him catch 222 passes for 3,090 yards, and 16 touchdowns. McLaurin is the Commanders' top offensive player and they hope to secure a contract that will keep him around for many years.
