Bold free-agent predictions for the Washington Commanders as general manager Adam Peters looks to make his presence felt immediately in 2024.

Adam Peters is locked and loaded heading into free agency. The Washington Commanders have $96 million in available salary-cap space with multiple key needs to fill. While lavish spending has been ruled out by the new general manager, it would be a shock if the franchise wasn't active when the madness commences.

Peters wants to build through the draft and supplement through free agency. The Commanders have nine selections to find long-term solutions from the college ranks - including the No. 2 pick. If they want to hit the ground running under head coach Dan Quinn, finding veteran performers capable of making immediate improvements is essential.

The options are almost endless. It's an exciting time for fans, who are eagerly anticipating what a fresh business model and more accomplished decision-makers have in store. This is also an attractive destination for free agents with Dan Snyder's toxic grip long relinquished.

With that said, here are three bold Commanders predictions during 2024 free agency.

Commanders sign three starting offensive linemen

Releasing Charles Leno Jr. and Nick Gates indicates the Washington Commanders are going to prioritize strengthening their offensive line. This is something Ron Rivera couldn't accomplish effectively despite inheriting a decent unit filled with players who are still thriving around the league today.

The Commanders could take advantage of a deep offensive line draft class. But if they go down the rookie quarterback route, they need veterans with the experience to provide immediate assistance. Fortunately, they have the financial means to lure some of the top-level performers should those in power wish.

Much more is needed, but signing three offensive linemen with starting-caliber credentials would be a good place to start.
