Commanders could sign Jalen Wydermyer
If the Washington Commanders want a wildcard of sorts that could end up competing for a 53-man roster spot, then they might want to take a closer look at Jalen Wydermyer. It might not amount to anything, but it could be a nice surprise in a similar way Armani Rogers became after joining the ranks.
Wydermyer looked like a promising prospect after a decent enough three-year stint at Texas A&M that resulted in 118 receptions for 1,468 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns. This wasn't enough for the player to hear his name called during the 2022 NFL Draft after some disappointing testing scores, and he's bounced around numerous teams ever since without making a legitimate impact.
Just why everything hasn't come together for Wydermyer as yet is the big question. His most recent release came from the Indianapolis Colts three weeks ago and if a new home isn't found quickly, a future XFL career might be in the offing.
One could argue that might be a better option for Wydermyer at this juncture. But if the Commanders want another athletic individual for additional depth in camp if nothing else, this fits the bill.
Losing Rogers - arguably the team's only dynamic force at the tight end spot - is a major blow to Eric Bieniemy's offensive scheme. Whether it's enough for the Commanders to dive back into the market with the limited financial resources available is another matter.
