Johnson expects great things from McLaurin, Samuel
Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson knows a thing or two about big wide receivers. The former Cincinnati Bengal was six times Pro Bowler and twice on the All-Pro First Team during his 11-year NFL career.
Now Johnson remains extremely active on social media, and one of his favorite hobbies is offering real analysis on some of the best wide receivers in the NFL today.
Johnson did not hesitate to express his affection for Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin. Earlier this offseason, when Adam Schefter tweeted that quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick had signed with Washington, Johnson made a bold prediction for McLaurin in 2021.
Terry McLaurin season 1500 yards in and I guarantee it‼ ️ https://t.co/msGN5GWVLY

Well, that was four months ago, and it’s clear Johnson is still high on McLaurin. This week Johnson tweeted another prediction for McLaurin in 2021, and this time he has included new Washington wide receiver Curtis Samuel.
Remember that tweet: Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel are going to go crazy with Fitzpatrick at the helm, an aggressive QB who takes risks and will improvise at los and these two have the skills that make his job easier, I guarantee their production is bananas, no hat 🧢

Johnson’s opinion is shared by many. Washington certainly thinks having a quarterback like Fitzpatrick, who isn’t afraid to shoot on the pitch, will unlock the football team‘s offense in 2021.
And, if Fitzpatrick remains healthy and can limit turnovers, McLaurin and Samuel will each have a big 2021 season.
Can McLaurin reach 1,500 yards? Don’t count it.
