4 Commanders players Eric Bieniemy might want to let go in 2023
By Dean Jones
Which Washington Commanders players might be deemed surplus to requirements under new assistant head coach/offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy?
There are just a few short days before Washington Commanders fans get to hear Eric Bieniemy speak for the first time since his switch from the Kansas City Chiefs. This promises to be a fantastic insight into his thoughts about moving the offense forward and why exactly he left the defending Super Bowl champions for a fresh start.
Bieniemy’s arrival brings hope and intrigue in equal measure. This might be the final stepping stone towards becoming an NFL head coach, which could also benefit Ron Rivera heading into a crucial third campaign at the helm.
While the optimism is obvious, the hard work starts now for Bieniemy and the Commanders. This begins by getting everyone on board with the scheme and finding the right reinforcements to strengthen the current options at their disposal.
For others, they might not be so lucky. With that being said, here are four players that Bieniemy might want to let go in 2023.
Player No. 1
Wes Schweitzer – Commanders OL
The Washington Commanders could make some serious adjustments to their offensive line next season. Something that seems almost guaranteed after such an inconsistent campaign across the board last time around.
Wes Schweitzer could be moved on when free agency arrives depending on his financial demands. His production was solid if not spectacular, but Eric Bieniemy might have different ideas in pursuit of getting his time in Washington off on the right foot.
