3 teams that screwed up by not trading in for Terry McLaurin
The Washington Commanders have signed star wide receiver Terry McLaurin to a three-year contract extension. Here are three teams that screwed up by not trading for him.
In 2022, the NFL’s top wide receivers have landed lucrative deals, whether from their original team or from their new organization. Davante Adams, Cooper Kupp, AJ Brown and Tyreek Hill are just a few of the wideouts who have landed new deals.
On Tuesday, June 27th, the Washington Commanders and Terry McLaurin agreed to a three-year, $71 million contract extensionkeeping him on the team through the 2025 season and avoiding him hitting free agency next year.
With this, the fans immediately think of what could have been. In that case, “What if my team could trade for McLaurin?” Here are three teams who should do their best to negotiate a deal and acquire McLaurin to add to their wide receiver corps.
3. Chiefs of Kansas City
If you’re a consistent Super Bowl contender, you’re always taking steps to get better. That Kansas City chiefs be the right thing.
The Chiefs shockingly made the decision to trade Tyreek Hill after contract negotiations stalled. He was traded to the Miami Dolphins and signed a four-year, $120 million contract. The loss of speed that Hill provided on the field is huge for the Chiefs.
Kansas City has made some solid moves to bolster its passing attack this offseason. They signed former Pittsburgh Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Green Bay Packers wideout Marquez Valdes-Scantling in free agency while drafting Western Michigan’s Skyy Moore in the second round of the NFL draft.
Given that these are the Chiefs, they can easily go from draft capital to a receiver like McLaurin, who has had back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons with the quarterbacks he had thrown at him.
