What are the thinnest position groups on the Washington Commanders heading into the 2023 off-season period?

It won’t be much longer before the dominos start falling and we get a broader indication of what to expect from the Washington Commanders in 2023. The free-agent frenzy is just a few short weeks away, with scouting events ahead of the NFL Draft something else that draws plenty of speculation and attention before the all-important selection weekend.

There is optimism surrounding the Commanders and their chances next time around. Eric Bieniemy’s arrival is a primary reason for this, but those in power have some tough decisions to make on the playing side of things in pursuit of making an immediate return to the postseason.

Current players are looking for new deals, some could be sacrificed for salary-cap relief, and it wouldn’t be a shock to see Washington make a big slash or two considering what’s at stake for head coach Ron Rivera.

Before the madness commences, here are the four thinnest Commanders’ position groups heading into the 2023 off-season.

Commanders are thin at TE

Considering the success Eric Bieniemy‘s had from tight-end production in recent years, the Washington Commanders might not have enough to meet his high demands. Logan Thomas, John Bates, and Cole Turner could all improve, but it does look a little thin on the ground and reinforcements should be acquired at some stage this offseason.

This would add another dimension to a passing attack that lacked productivity from their tight ends last season. What this means for the aforementioned trio’s short-term futures remains to be seen.
