On Saturday, Johnson made his feelings known in a very NSFW way.
“Terry McLaurin…… that’s it, that’s the f**ing tweet,” Johnson wrote.
Terry McLaurin…… that’s it, that’s the fucking tweet 💎

The Redskins offered their own response to Johnson's thoughts.

To be this polished this early has to be so relieving for the QB & whoever calls the plays ®️ https://t.co/bV6n0e4CwY

A few days later, it was clear Johnson was excited that McLaurin would be making an appearance at Hard Rock Stadium. McLaurin was selected in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Ohio State.
It didn't take long for McLaurin to have a big impact for the Redskins, quickly proving that he was one of the steals of the draft. He started 14 games as a rookie, catching 58 passes for 919 yards and seven touchdowns.
He played with Redskins starting quarterback Dwayne Haskins back at Ohio State, and once he took over the starting job, the two didn't miss a beat.
Even with all the success, McLaurin knows nothing is guaranteed so he is trying to just prove himself to the new coaching staff:
“I just try to take it in stride, be humble, not be complacent with what I've done because there are so many things I feel like I can still do to get better and help our team,” McLaurin said via the Redskins team website. “I'm coming in with a day one mentality trying to learn as much as I can and just being a guy who can take that next step and somebody that can continue to be depended on this upcoming season.”
The Redskins hope the offense is going to be better, something that starts with McLaurin taking another step forward.
