The Washington Commanders find themselves in a tricky situation this offseason. That is, outside of everything else going on with Dan Snyder. The front office has yet to extend Terry McLaurin, who has been skipping training camp until a deal is agreed upon. Perhaps the team will re-sign him, but it sounds like there is a chance it won't happen as well.

According to Nicki Jhabvala, talks on a new contract have been undergoing. However, it seems the Commanders and McLaurin are still far apart on the details of the new deal. At the very least, it's good news that Washington and Terry McLaurin are in communication. Even so, fans might have to wait a bit longer until a decision is finalized.

This is not an ideal situation for the Commanders. With Carson Wentz under center, it would greatly benefit the organization to have Terry McLaurin present for training camp. If not, there is a risk the offense will be, as Wentz and McLaurin attempt to build chemistry during the season. On the other hand, there is the risk Washington is unable to reach a deal with their star receiver.

Re-signing Terry McLaurin should be the top priority right now, as his departure could prove to be detrimental to the club's success this year. It's not a great sign that the two sides are far apart in contract talks. For that reason, all eyes will be on the Commanders. If they can sign him to an extension, then McLaurin will remain in Washington for the long haul. If not, then trade rumors will take over the NFL news cycle.

Look for more information to be released in the coming weeks, as the Commanders should be doing everything possible to keep Terry McLaurin on the roster for the upcoming 2022 NFL season.
