Terry McLaurin's breakout success in the NFL was rewarded in a major way Tuesday.

The former Buckeye wideout and third-round 2019 NFL draft pick inked a three-year contract extension with the Washington Commanders worth up to $71 million, per multiple reports. The deal includes a signing bonus of $28 million, which is the most given to any wide receiver, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The deal puts McLaurin among the five highest-paid wideouts in the NFL.

After being selected No. 76 overall by Washington three years ago, McLaurin hauled in 58 catches for 919 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie. McLaurin racked up 1,118 yards and five scores in 2020, and finished this past season with 1,053 yards and five trips to the end zone.

McLaurin accrued 75 receptions for 1,251 yards and 19 touchdowns during a five-year career with the Buckeyes from 2014-18.
