Terry McLaurin, Commanders Still Far Apart in Contract Negotiations, per Report

Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is unlikely to show up for his team’s minicamp Tuesday as he and the team remain far apart on extension negotiations, per the Washington Post’s Nicki Jhabvala. There has been progress on negotiations, but McLaurin has opted to return to Florida where he will do his own training. 

Minicamp is mandatory, but it is up to individual teams if players will be fined for skipping camp. The most McLaurin could be fined is $15,980 for the first day missed, $31,961 for the second and $47,936 for the third, per Jhabvala. In total, his fine could be $95,877 if he were to miss all three days.

McLaurin is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next offseason if both sides don’t agree on a long-term deal and will earn $2.79 million in 2022 under his rookie contract. The 26-year-old is a star for Washington and is coming off his second 1,000-yard receiving season in a row.
