Which Washington Commanders players shouldn’t be on the team when they suit up once again in 2023? 

Speculation continues to mount about when, or if, Dan Snyder sells the Washington Commanders in the not-too-distant future. But it’s business as usual for those behind the scenes as they look to put the foundations in place for a playoff return.

Scouting events ahead of the 2023 NFL Draft are gathering pace. The Commanders will also be discussing which players to retain or release before free agency while also identifying potential targets that might become available.

Washington can clear around $50 million in cap space to strengthen their roster. They also have eight draft selections to bolster problem areas – so there are worse positions to be in heading into Year 3 of Ron Rivera’s tenure.

With that being said, here are four Commanders players that shouldn’t be around when the 2023 season begins.

Wes Schweitzer – Commanders OL

Finding better options across the offensive line must be prioritized this off-season. The Washington Commanders didn’t get enough consistency from the unit overall, which was especially evident on the interior.

This leaves Wes Schweitzer’s status with the organization hanging in the balance. The former San Jose State star gave up three sacks and conceded three penalties from 419 snaps last season, so there won’t be a better time for those in power to go in a different direction.
