Commanders could trade for Dan Moore Jr.

If there was one concern surrounding Adam Peters' incredible roster revamp this offseason, it's at the offensive tackle positions. The need to keep rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels upright consistently cannot be overstated. Instead of investing heavily, the Washington Commanders stood relatively pat to the surprise of most.

Cornelius Lucas was brought back on a one-year deal but is seen as a swing tackle option rather than someone capable of producing from a prominent starting role. Trent Scott remains on the books as a depth option. Andrew Wylie also looks set to get another shot at the right tackle spot despite an underwhelming first campaign in the nation's capital.

The Commanders released starting left tackle Charles Leno Jr. After failing to trade back into the first round for one of the better tackle prospects, Peters turned his attention to Brandon Coleman at No. 67 overall. Although the former TCU standout was an accomplished performer in college, there are concerns about whether his lack of length and size could prove complicated if Washington does deploy him as Daniels' blindside protector.

Teams don't tend to trade good offensive tackles - unless you're the Commanders. They inexplicable removed Trent Williams from the equation after mismanaging his situation horribly. They are still paying the price to this day.

It could be worth giving the Pittsburgh Steelers a call to inquire about the availability of Dan Moore Jr. The veteran is dependable enough and has the athleticism to play either side of the protection. However, he looks set to lose his starting spot in 2024 after the AFC North powerhouse took Troy Fautanu with their first-round selection.

The Steelers could decide to keep Moore around as a viable backup contingency plan. They might also see some value in getting draft capital back in return for someone who'll be out of contract next spring.

Whether it's Moore or someone else, the Commanders could use another offensive tackle option. This need becomes even greater if Coleman struggles to adjust.
