  • Jamin Davis

As with the Washington Commanders subpar at best offensive line, the situation across the linebacker corps is a train wreck. Jamin Davis is not as good as you would hope a first-round pick would be, but he has improved over the years and is at least an average professional linebacker at this point.

His price tag is not outrageous. Although the chances of Davis getting his fifth-year option picked up this offseason seem remote under a new regime with no emotional attachment to the former Kentucky star whatsoever.

The three other linebackers who actually play are all free agents this summer. Maybe a guy like Khaleke Hudson returns on a team-friendly deal, but no one other than Davis is even close to being a lock.

There will be a new defensive coordinator next season. after the team fired Jack Del Rio. Therefore, fans can expect plenty of changes to both scheme and personnel.

This will be more apparent at the neglected linebacker position than anywhere else. Considering both Del Rio and head coach Ron Rivera played the position, for them to almost completely ignore its importance was mind-boggling during the offseason recruitment phase and even more so now.
