Which offseason moves made by NFC East rivals have the potential to terrify the Washington Commanders' long-suffering fanbase in 2024?

The Washington Commanders have been busy focusing on themselves under Adam Peters this offseason. There was a significant amount of work ahead for the new regime in their quest to get this once-proud franchise back to respectability. It's been a tremendous start that hasn't broken the bank, but more is needed within such a competitive division.

Peters has a bounty of draft assets to further speed up his rebuild. The Commanders are well placed to put up more of a fight next time around, but mounting a playoff push in Year 1 under head coach Dan Quinn seems unrealistic unless there's a miracle turnaround.

It's been relatively quiet around the NFC East aside from the Commanders' activity. The three other teams have gone about their business with relatively little fanfare attached. However, some acquisitions have the scope to make things more difficult for Washington if they hit the ground running.

With this in mind, here are three offseason moves around the division that should terrify Commanders fans.

Bryce Huff

The Philadelphia Eagles always seem to make things work. Howie Roseman is a master of cap manipulation and working contracts that benefit the franchise. Some established veterans such as Jason Kelce and Fletcher Cox have retired, but the wheels keep turning and talent keeps arriving.

The Eagles secured a notable acquisition in the form of Bryce Huff. His edge rushing production with the New York Jets last season came in for significant praise. He got a bumper deal from Philadelphia as a result and should become a major asset to a defensive front that appeared to regress over the second half of 2023.

Adam Peters is still looking to revamp the Washington Commanders offensive line to his required standard. After solidifying the interior during free agency, attention must turn to the edge when the 2024 NFL Draft arrives.
