Which recent cuts could the Washington Commanders identify as potential contributors heading into a critical 2023 campaign for the organization?
It was a tough day for everyone associated with the Washington Commanders as roster cuts aplenty resulted in confirmation of their initial 53-man roster. However, more transactions could be on the way with hundreds of players now on the lookout for another opportunity.
The Commanders have some depth positions that could use reinforcements. It's also worth remembering that 16 places are available on the practice squad for those who need a little further development before gaining competitive reps during the regular season.
Head coach Ron Rivera and general manager Martin Mayhew stated that this remains a fluid situation. If those in power identify a player or two they feel can assist their chances of making a surprise NFC East title push, expect further additions in the hours and days ahead.
With this in mind, here are ten recent cuts that could potentially interest the Commanders in 2023.
Commanders could sign Natrone Brooks (CB)
Despite starring throughout Atlanta Falcons' training camp, it wasn't enough for Natrone Brooks to make the 53-man roster. The cornerback might be down in the dumps right now, but that might not be the case for much longer after putting out enough tape to suggest he could contribute in some capacity as a rookie.
An undrafted free agent out of Southern Mississippi, Brooks should come under consideration for the Washington Commanders. Especially considering the injury concerns surrounding Danny Johnson heading into the campaign.
