Commanders could sign Bobby Wagner

While the Washington Commanders performed well under Jack Del Rio’s guidance last season, a few additions could be enough to get them into one of the league’s most consistent units. This bears special significance at the second-level interior, which lacked consistency at times during the campaign and must be addressed in some capacity this offseason.

Finding an explosive college prospect via the 2023 NFL Draft is a realistic option for the Commanders. But if they want to be a little bolder, putting in a call to Bobby Wagner‘s representatives is something else that could be an immediate reward.

Wagner was a cap casualty despite performing extremely well for the Los Angeles Rams in 2022. The perennial All-Pro remains a high-impact performer in all phases and even though he’s approaching 33 years old, this would be an instant solution and one that could do wonders for Washington’s postseason chances.

Interest in Wagner is sure to be high. So whether a team like the Commanders would be on his radar if someone with a legitimate chance of winning a Super Bowl comes calling is debatable.

However, the Commanders have nothing to lose by shooting their shot. And there is more than enough talent on their defense to keep Wagner’s productivity high without becoming too reliant on the future Pro Football Hall of Famer.
