To say it's been a dramatic offseason for the Washington Commanders wouldn't do it justice. Fans were eagerly awaiting what came next as Josh Harris' ownership group began their ambitious plans for future progress. Not many envisaged such wholesale alterations during a frantic few months for the franchise.

Adam Peters was the right man to spearhead this ambitious project. The new general manager instilled a sense of professionalism and purpose that wasn't evident previously. He turned this into a competent football operation quickly, implementing a decision-making process that centers on short-term gains without jeopardizing long-term prosperity.

The roster and infrastructure look completely different from the one that concluded the 2023 campaign. This is an undoubted positive, but the onus is now on head coach Dan Quinn and his staff to mold this group into one that can become more competitive next season.

Easier said than done, but expectations are growing. With this in mind, here are three winners and two losers from the Commanders' offseason overhaul in 2024.

Winner No. 1

Andrew Wylie - Commanders OT

After an underwhelming first season with the Washington Commanders and a new coaching regime coming into the fold, speculation rose about whether Andrew Wylie's time with the organization would be short-lived. Adam Peters had no trouble getting rid of those he felt weren't pulling their weight, but the veteran right tackle got a reprieve in pursuit of better fortunes next time around.

Wylie had moments of quality last season, but he looked exposed on the edge despite having Sam Cosmi alongside him on the interior. The Commanders did nothing to enhance competition aside from re-signing swing tackle Cornelius Lucas. This is a sign that those in power see something in the Super Bowl winner that can be molded into better production.

The possibility of additional reinforcements arriving before the campaign cannot be dismissed. But for now, Wylie's fortunes look a lot brighter than most anticipated heading into the 2024 offseason.
