Commanders could sign Shi Smith (WR/KR)

The Washington Commanders opted to move forward with Dax Milne almost by default as their kick returner after Kazmeir Allen fluffed his lines during Preseason Week 3. However, those in power could easily pick someone up who didn't make the grade elsewhere in search of an upgrade.

One player that might be worth a closer look is Shi Smith. The wide receiver flashed moments of quality during his time on the Carolina Panthers offensive rotation, also boasting the elusiveness needed to be a force in the return game when opportunities arose.

Commanders could sign Logan Bruss (OL)

Adding to offensive line depth should always be discussed no matter how happy the Commanders' brass might be with their options. Logan Bruss has had a rough time with injuries since entering the league, but his position flexibility is something Ron Rivera values highly in all his options on the protection.

While there could be better options available, Bruss has the athletic intangibles that should indicate quick developments with a solid run on the health front. Whether his skill set is enough to justify parting ways with someone already on the books is another matter.

Commanders could sign Bradley Roby (CB)

Arguably the biggest surprise in terms of cuts around the league was the New Orleans Saints' decision to make Bradley Roby surplus to requirements. Initially penciled in as the team's slot cornerback, the veteran is now looking for alternative employment and should get a ton of interest from teams looking to improve depth within the secondary.

There's absolutely no doubt Roby could help the Commanders in some capacity. Whether they'll have a legitimate shot to get him to the franchise is the big question.
