The Washington Commanders have a new lease of life heading into the 2024 season. Wholesale changes from top to bottom since the previous campaign concluded brought fresh hope for the future. Even the brightest optimist will acknowledge it could take time, but this is part of the team's grand plans for progression.

Adam Peters and his staff put in the hard yards this offseason. The onus is now on Dan Quinn and the accomplished coaches under him to do the same. Early workouts saw renewed energy and professionalism attached. This will serve them well ahead of Washington's upcoming mandatory minicamp.

This will be more intense without quite reaching the heights of training camp. It's another chance for those further down the pecking order to stake their claim in pursuit of starting involvement, depth chart positions, or places on the practice squad. It's also an opportunity for Peters to get a broader perception of what more is needed before Week 1.

The stakes are getting higher for all involved. With this in mind, here are three Commanders players on the roster bubble who must impress during the team's 2024 minicamp.

Mitchell Tinsley - Commanders WR

After starring during the previous preparation period, Mitchell Tinsley faces another fight to make the 53-man roster in 2024. The wide receiver must impress new faces to carve out a role for himself. That'll be easier said than done despite concerns surrounding others within the room.

The Washington Commanders lost Curtis Samuel in free agency. They signed Olamide Zaccheaus and drafted Luke McCaffrey to potentially fill the void. The competition for places is fierce, so nothing but outstanding production when called upon will do where Tinsley is concerned.

It'll be difficult, there's no getting away from that. Tinsley is an undrafted free agent who rose from obscurity. This experience will serve him well in pursuit of achieving similar feats under a new offensive coaching staff led by Kliff Kingsbury.

Showing out during Washington's minicamp is a good place to start.
