Curtis Samuel was a big free agent signing this year, and he is expected to pair with 3rd-year WR Terry McLaurin to form a great starting duo for free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick. Washington opened up training camp today which was a glorified orientation day with conditioning tests. Curtis Samuel has been placed on the Active/PUP list to start out camp. Ron Rivera was asked about his status on Grant and Danny and he said he was fine.

As for Curtis Samuel, I'm told it's not a "major concern" as he's dealing with a groin issue. Keep in mind he missed all of June minicamp too— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) July 27, 2021
