It is not often you see a pair of college wide receiver teammates pair up in the NFL, but that is exactly what is happening in Washington. The Washington Football Team recently signed free agent Curtis Samuel to a 3-year deal, reuniting him with Terry McLaurin.
Samuel and McLaurin played together at Ohio State University during the 2015 & 2016 seasons. Of course, they were part of a Buckeye team that took home the National Championship in 2015. Now, the two playmakers lead Washington's receiving group moving forward.
McLaurin has burst onto the NFL scene posting 900+ yards and at least 4 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons. His ability to make plays in the open field and run crisp deep routes has quickly made him a fan favorite on the team.
Samuel has been used an RB/WR hybrid over the last four seasons with the Carolina Panthers and has scored 14 touchdowns during that span. He is coming off a career-best season in 2020 racking up 1,051 all-purpose yards to go along with a career-high 77 receptions and 41 rush attempts.
This is an intriguing young duo that should have Washington fans excited for next season as it gives the team a legitimate shot to repeat as NFC East champions. No matter the outcome, it sure seems like the two former college cohorts are glad to be back together playing football.
