Terry McLaurin shows off his balance, footwork with incredible acrobatic grab
Terry McLaurin is at it again with the Washington Football Team wide receiver coming up with a big play in the first half of his team’s Week 9 game against the New York Giants. It was the kind of play that showed just how special of an athlete McLaurin is as well as his potential to be an impact player on Sundays.
On a high pass, the former Ohio State wide receiver rose well to not only make the catch but then land both feet in bounds along the tight sideline and hold onto the ball in traffic. It was another big play for a wide receiver who is fast earning a reputation as being a playmaker.
We really shouldn't be surprised by these catches from @TheTerry_25 anymore, should we? 😧
