Samuel signing three-year, $34.5m deal with Washington – reports

Former Carolina Panthers wide receiver Curtis Samuel is expected to sign with the Washington Football Team. According to ESPN and NFL Network on Wednesday, Samuel is signing a three-year contract worth $34.5million in Washington. Samuel will reunite with Washington head coach Ron Rivera, who coached the 24-year-old during his first three seasons in Carolina.

A second-round draft pick in 2017, Samuel had a career-best 77 catches for 851 yards and 41 rushes for 200 yards last season as the Panthers (5-11) missed the playoffs. In 53 career games, Samuel has 185 receptions for 2,087 yards and 14 touchdown receptions and 478 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns.

Washington (7-9) topped the NFC East in 2020, but lost to eventual Super Bowl champions the Tampa Bay Buccaneers n the Wild Card Round.
