Commanders could target Mike McGlinchey

  • Offensive Tackle | San Francisco 49ers

As stated previously, the Washington Commanders are desperate for a makeover across their offensive line. Especially considering all signs point to Sam Howell getting a legitimate shot at being their starting quarterback in 2023.

Although the prospect of further reinforcements cannot be dismissed, the Commanders and Eric Bieniemy must do everything in their power to ensure Howell can make a positive go of things. With any successful offense around the NFL, that all starts upfront.

Fortunately for the Commanders, there are a number of routes they can take. If Mike McGlinchey was on the market at any stage, it’s a potential option.

McGlinchey might not have reached the heights of a top-10 draft pick. But his production against the pass and on running downs last season was far superior to anything Washington put on the edge last season.

With just $8 million in salary-cap space and plenty of mouths to feed next spring, the San Francisco 49ers might decide to move on from McGlinchey. Something that should interest the Commanders if the money works for all parties.

According to Spotrac, McGlinchey is set to command $14.8 million per season on a four-year, $59.41 million deal. Not cheap, but the Commanders need immediate help with Bieniemy leading the charge.
