Report: Former Penn State WR Mitchell Tinsley Makes Commanders’ Final Roster

Penn State Nittany Lions wide receiver Mitchell Tinsley (5) November 12, 2022 David Hague/NSN

Former Penn State receiver Mitchell Tinsley has made it.

Tinsley, who only played at PSU for one season but caught a touchdown in the Rose Bowl, went to Washington as an un-drafted free agent.

He’s reportedly played well enough in the preseason— six catches, 129 yards and a touchdown— to make  Washington’s 53 man, according to ESPN’s John Keim.

Tinsley won’t be the only Penn Stater in the Commanders’ WR room. One of the best to ever play at PSU, Jahan Dotson, was Washington’s first-round draft pick in 2022. Dotson and Tinsley didn’t play together in college.

While Dotson was balling out in the Big Ten, Tinsley was putting up big numbers at Western Kentucky.

In 2021, Tinsley finished his junior season— his second at Western Kentucky— with 1,402 yards on 87 catches and 14 touchdowns. In the Hilltoppers’ Boca Raton Bowl win over Appalachian State, Tinsley ended his Western Kentucky stay with a seven-catch, 103-yard performance, highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown reception.

At Penn State, Tinsley finished his lone season with 577 yards and five touchdowns on 51 catches.
