Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post reports that Terry McLaurin is "unlikely" to attend minicamp.
McLaurin will be a free agent following the 2022 season.
In the previous three seasons, McLaurin has been Washington's most dangerous playmaker, catching 222 catches for 3,090 yards and 16 touchdowns.
That's 74 catches, 1,030 yards, and 5.3 touchdowns per season. Some of his draught class teammates have earned big contracts this offseason.
A.J. Brown, Eagles: 4 years, $100m
Renfrow, Vegas Two-year, $32 million Raiders
Marquise Brown and others should sign extensions.
Deebo Samuel reportedly requested a trade this offseason but has since reported to 49ers mandatory minicamp.
DK Metcalf has followed McLaurin's lead, skipping minicamp as he seeks a long-term deal.
Several offseason deals changed the wideout market. Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams, and Brown received big deals after being traded.
The Rams granted Cooper Kupp a three-year, $80 million agreement, and the Bills gave Stefon Diggs a four-year, $104 million deal.
Jacksonville Jaguars signed Christian Kirk to a four-year, $72 million deal as the market soared.
Kirk caught 77 catches for 982 yards and five touchdowns for the Arizona Cardinals in 2021, but his deal was seen as an overpay, especially at wideout.
Kirk's deal raises the floor for productive receivers like McLaurin, while Brown's $25-million-per-year agreement increases the ceiling for his draught class.
McLaurin has more receptions and receiving yards than Brown so far. The Commanders will claim that Brown has eight more touchdowns than McLaurin in three less games and has been a Pro Bowler.
Both sides should negotiate. McLaurin will allegedly stay away until the squad works out the kinks.
