RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-23

Pringle finished the 2023 campaign with 14 catches for 161 yards in 17 games.

The 30-year-old played all 17 games but drew only 22 targets while mostly operating as Washington's fifth/sixth wide receiver. Pringle played more snaps on special teams (195) than on offense (183) and now is scheduled for unrestricted free agency in the offseason. Around half of his career receiving production came in one season (2021) with the Chiefs.

Empty stat line

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-05

Pringle was unable to find his way on the stat sheet in the Commanders' 45-15 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday.

Pringle played a season-high 28 percent of the team's snaps on offense, but he was never targeted on any of Sam Howell's 23 passing attempts. The veteran wideout remains stuck on 13 receptions on 18 targets for 156 yards and no touchdowns on the 2023 campaign, with his next opportunities coming in Week 14 against the Rams.

Catches three passes

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-20

Pringle caught each of his three targets for 33 yards and lost a fumble in Sunday's 31-19 loss to the Giants.

The fumble came at the end of a long kick return, spoiling an otherwise-solid day for Pringle, who was one of three Commanders WRs to finish in the range of 25-to-35-percent snap share with Curtis Samuel ejected for fighting. The rotation behind the top three suggests Pringle won't have much value even if Samuel, Terry McLaurin and/or Jahan Dotson misses time over the final month and a half of the season.

Catches one pass

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-22

Pringle caught his lone target for 16 yards in Sunday's 14-7 loss to the Giants.

Pringle ran only three routes, fifth most among Washington's wide receivers. He could perhaps get a little more playing time in the future if the team grows frustrated with Jahan Dotson, but for now the Commanders seem more inclined to let their 2022 first-round pick work through his struggles. Pringle isn't likely to see more than a target or two Week 8 against Philadelphia.

Hauls in a pass

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-10-09

Pringle caught one of two targets for 10 yards in a 40-20 loss to Chicago on Sunday.

Pringle is Washington's No. 5 receiver and doesn't stand a great chance to move up the depth chart without an injury, considering the guy ahead of him who has struggled so far (Jahan Dotson) was a first-round pick last year and scored seven TDs as a rookie. Dotson should get the chance to continue working through his struggles, leaving Pringle and Dyami Brown in depth roles unless one of Washington's top three guys misses time with an injury. The Commanders travel to Atlanta in Week 6.

Records short reception

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-09-20

Pringle played 13 snaps on offense in Sunday's 35-33 win over Denver, reeling in his lone target for a four-yard gain.

After being limited exclusively to a special-teams role in the Commanders' Week 1 win over the Cardinals, Pringle was able to carve out a small depth role at receiver. He still ranked well behind Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson, Curtis Samuel and Dyami Brown and is unlikely to carve out a meaningful passing-game role unless the Commanders lose multiple receivers to injury.

Still on roster

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-08-30

Pringle has a spot on Washington's initial 53-man roster, JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington reports.

The Commanders are carrying seven wide receivers, including undrafted rookie Mitchell Tinsley. That may not last, but it's not a total shock given that No. 1 receiver Terry McLaurin (toe) is uncertain for Week 1 against the Cardinals. Pringle likely would be only fourth or fifth on the depth chart even if McLaurin were to miss the game.

Headed to Landover

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-07-25

Pringle agreed to a contract with the Commanders on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

After Pringle's disappointing year in Chicago (10-135-2), he reunites with his old offensive coordinator, Eric Bieniemy, in Washington. His last season with Bieniemy was 2021, where tallied 42 catches for 568 yards and five touchdowns. Expect the veteran wideout to compete for the fourth wide receiver position on the Commanders behind Terry McLaurin, Jahan Dotson and Curtis Samuel ahead of the coming season.

Disappoints in 2022

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-01-08

Pringle caught one pass for five yards in the Bears' 29-13 loss to the Vikings in Week 18, and ended the season with 10 receptions, 135 yards and two touchdowns over 11 games played.

Injuries limited Pringle to 11 games, and he never caught more than two passes or gained 40 yards in a game. During the preseason, he missed significant time due to injury, and he certainly missed out on building chemistry with Justin Fields. It also didn't help that Pringle was part of a low-volume passing attack that frequently rotated its wide receivers. The only year of his four-year career in which he surpassed 170 yards was when he caught 42 passes for 568 yards and two touchdowns in 2021 with Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. He's now an unrestricted free agent.
