Wes Schweitzer – Commanders OL

A huge makeover across the offensive line is absolutely critical for the Washington Commanders this offseason, The group overall was abysmal for most of the 2022 campaign and unless things improve drastically, it’s hard to envisage a scenario where the team makes a legitimate postseason run next time around.

Although this could leave many of last season’s starters on the outside looking in, it might be worth keeping Wes Schweitzer. His versatility could add additional depth across the unit, but guaranteeing him a starting berth doesn’t appear wise when one examines his full body of work since joining the organization.

This comes down to two things. Whether Schweitzer is willing to accept a backup role and if the Commanders have enough spare resources to make him a relatively reasonable offer.

Nothing can be ruled out at this stage. Schweitzer would provide the Commanders with a nice swing presence if nothing else – even if the San Jose State product could decide to take his chances elsewhere if offered a legitimate starting role when free agency begins.

It’s a precarious situation between Washington and Schweitzer. But the positives far outweigh the negatives regarding a new deal if the Commanders bring in players that demote the veteran to a core rotational piece.
