Former Penn State WR Jahan Dotson Signs With Washington Commanders

Last month, the Washington Commanders drafted Jahan Dotson out of Penn State with the 16th overall pick. Now, he’s officially signed to the team, according to Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post.

The Commanders signed Dotson to a four-year deal that totals more than $15 million and includes a bonus of more than $8 million.

Mr. Dotson comes to Washington following an excellent career at Penn State in which he became one of the school’s best receivers ever. He finished second all-time on the schools receptions list and fourth in receiving yards.

The 2021 season was Dotson’s best. The focal point of Penn State’s offense finished the year with 1,182 yards and 12 touchdowns on 91 catches, a bright light in a year that was underwhelming overall for Penn State and it’s fans.

Two weekends ago, Dotson became a graduate of Penn State in person at the behest of his new head coach, Ron Rivera.

The rookie-to-be had planned on skipping his graduation in order to attend the first day of his new team’s minicamp, but Rivera insisted that he go to the ceremony.

The best game of Dotson’s college career statistically came in College Park, Maryland, last November when he caught 11 passes for 242 yards and three touchdowns. Commanders fans hope he’ll have great days ahead in Landover, Maryland, where the Commanders play their home games.
