Another day another NFL wide receiver pulling a diva move. This time it's Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin. According to Adam Schefter, McLaurin does not plan to attend this week's mandatory minicamp. He wants a new deal comparable to those signed recently by other wide receivers.
Washington WR Terry McLaurin does not plan to attend this week’s mandatory minicamp, per source. McLaurin is continuing to seek a contract extension consistent with other comparable WRs that recently signed; until he has it, he will miss reps with new Washington QB Carson Wentz.

The 26-year-old wide receiver has been as durable and as consistent as they come. Since being drafted by Washington in 2019 he has put together a 919 yard season in 14 games, 1118 yard season in 15 games and a 1053 yard season in 17 games.
Those back to back 1,000 yard seasons has him seeking a new paycheck. He's done all that without a 1quarterback who has started every game.
In 2019 Case Keenum, Dwayne Haskins and Colt McCoy all started games. That was followed up in 2020 by Alex Smith, Dwayne Haskins and Kyle Allen. 2021 was by far his most consistent season with a quarterback with Taylor Heinicke starting 15 games, but he also had Ryan Fitzpatrick and Garrett Gilbert make starts.
Maybe it is time to pay this McLaurin.....
