NFL - US Sports: Dotson dashing to fill McLaurin's shoes

06 June 2022 02:37:06 EST
Rookie Jahan Dotson is making a good impression with the Commanders

While Washington Commanders wide receiver Terry McLaurin skips team workouts over a contract issue, rookie Jahan Dotson has been earning praise for his no-frills production on the training field.

McLaurin is refusing to participate in any voluntary on-field practices until the Commanders, 2.65 to make the play-offs, come up with a suitable long-term contract offer.

Dotson in final rookie season

The 26-year-old, a third-round pick in 2019, is entering the final year of his rookie deal and - having earned just over $3million in his career to date - is set to make $2.79m in 2022.

Dotson was drafted out of Penn State to compliment McLaurin, but the jump-start he is getting in establishing some chemistry with new Commanders quarterback Carson Wentz could earn him a more prominent role than anticipated this coming season.

A growing rapport with the ex-Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts triggerman has been evident in the early stages of Washington's OTAs, with Dotson making plays all over the field.

"He's done a nice job," said Commanders offensive co-ordinator Scott Turner. "He came in, it looks like it's not too big for him.

"He's playing fast. He's consistently getting separation; he's catching the ball. He doesn't say a lot. He just kind of comes out here and works, which is good, you know?

"I think the guys, the guys like him, Carson, I know quarterbacks like throwing the ball to him. So just continue to have him work and get better. And there's a lot of different things we we'll be able to do with him."
