The Washington Commanders signed wide receiver Terry McLaurin to a three-year, $71 million contract extension.
The deal also includes a $28 million signing bonus, and makes the 26-year-old one of the highest-paid receivers in the league.
McLaurin has accumulated 222 receptions in his first three NFL seasons for 3,090 yards and 16 touchdowns.
With quarterback Carson Wentz joining the Commanders this offseason, McLaurin will hope to pad on to his numbers throughout his next few seasons.
This is a slight bright spot for the team, and team owner Daniel Snyder in still under heavy scrutiny and recently refused a subpoena to appear before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
The Oversight Committee is investigating the the team’s workplace misconduct, and the NFL itself fined Snyder’s franchise $10 million at the conclusion of their workplace misconduct investigation.
The investigation began after The Washington Post reported that 15 former employees claimed that they were sexually harassed during their time with the franchise and cited interviews with over 100 employees who claimed that Snyder “has presided over an organization in which women say they have been marginalized, discriminated against and exploited.”
