Commanders could trade Dyami Brown

Adam Peters had the league's most available salary-cap space at his disposal heading into free agency. As such, it was surprising to see the general manager almost stand pat at the wide receiver position considering how this unit largely underachieved in 2023.

Even though the Washington Commanders ran a pass-happy offense under Eric Bieniemy, nobody aside from Pro Bowler Terry McLaurin covered themselves in glory. Jahan Dotson didn't enjoy the breakout campaign many were anticipating. Curtis Samuel had some nice moments, but it wasn't enough to earn another deal en route to signing for the Buffalo Bills in free agency.

Despite his college quarterback Sam Howell being named the starter, Dyami Brown once again flattered to deceive. The former third-round selection has all the physical tools needed to become a productive pass-catcher. Unfortunately, nothing seems to be going right in Washington.

There was a cautious sense of intrigue surrounding Brown with Howell under center. The North Carolina product accumulated just 23 targets, 12 of which he brought in for 168 receiving yards and one touchdown. In three seasons, the wideout has mustered 476 receiving yards and three scores, which simply isn't good enough.

The Commanders are anticipated to take advantage of this year's wide receiver draft class, which is nothing short of exceptional. What that means for Brown's future is unclear, but Peters could decide to start shopping the pass-catcher in the hope of getting something back in return.

This would need a team to fall in love with Brown's potential entering a contract year. If a franchise misses out on one of its preferred targets during the draft, maybe they'll roll the dice. It does seem unlikely, but there's a good chance the wideout will be expendable once the college selection process concludes.

Of course, Kliff Kingsbury could see something in Brown that warrants a closer look this offseason. The fact he's still around at this stage indicates that might be the case. Time will tell.
