Wide receiver Terry McLaurin believes he's ready to meet the Washington Commanders' expectations after signing a lucrative contract extension with the club.
"Playing in the NFL is a blessing and something I will never take for granted," McLaurin wrote in an open letter Thursday. "From the moment I stepped foot on the field as a seven-year-old to now, I continue to respect the game, play it the right way, and leave everything I have on the field. I love the grind and the process of getting better."
He added: "From the day I was drafted, I've had the singular goal to win a Super Bowl with this franchise. This is on my mind every day when I walk into the building. While I am both humbled and ecstatic about this contract, it motivates me to work even harder.
"I understand and embrace the responsibility that comes with signing this extension. To whom much is given, much is required. There is no other place I would rather be or fan base I would want to represent."
