$53 million in guarantees
Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin is signing a three-year extension worth up to $71 million in new money that places him among the NFL’s five highest-paid WRs, sources told ESPN. The deal contractually ties McLaurin, 26, to Washington through the 2025 season. McLaurin’s rookie contract had been set to expire after the 2022 season. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Nerdy Football Analysis: The deal includes roughly $53 million in guarantees which is all the really matters. McLaurin decided not to attend the mandatory minicamp but this deal should pave the way for him to be at training camp in a few weeks. McLaurin finished as the WR33 in PPR leagues last season in fantasy points per game but will be viewed as more of a low-end WR2 by most fantasy owners.
