4 thinnest Commanders position groups heading into 2023 offseason
By Dean Jones
Commanders are thin on the OL
Although Carson Wentz’s production was subpar at best, the offensive line doesn’t get off the hook. Not by a long shot based on their full body of work throughout the campaign.
This unit underwent a major makeover during the previous offseason with little success. The presence of Brandon Scherff was sorely missed and those brought in just didn’t live up to their end of the bargain.
A number of veterans underperformed and those with more promise just didn’t take the necessary strides forward. Something that could lead the Washington Commanders into more big changes this spring.
Washington has the financial clout and draft capital to make this a reality. Eric Bieniemy won’t want his landmark switch to the Commanders failing due to suspect protection, so it’ll be interesting to see how influential figures within the franchise approach this critical issue in the coming weeks.
Nobody aside from Cornelius Lucas and perhaps Andrew Norwell is guaranteed starting involvement. One suspects that competition is coming on multiple fronts, which will have to gel ahead of improved fortunes next season.
