Which free agents could the Washington Commanders potentially target at bargain prices during the second wave of 2024 free agency?

It's been a good start to free agency for the Washington Commanders, but more is needed. There are roster holes to fill and money to spend. Adam Peters has done a tremendous job of finding the right balance between acquiring pieces and ensuring future financial flexibility. There's also the small matter of his draft bounty to utilize.

This is an exciting time for fans. Players are actively choosing the Commanders over other suitors for reasons other than money for the first time in two decades. It's a popular destination once again. That's a testament to the esteem in which Peters and new head coach Dan Quinn are held around the league.

With the first wave of free agency done, this is the time when teams begin looking for deals with a little extra value. Veterans could take less to get an opportunity with options diminishing. Finding difference-makers on team-friendly contracts could be worth considering from Peters' perspective. Something that would provide extra freedom during the draft.

With this in mind, here are four free agents the Commanders could target during the second wave in 2024.

Commanders could sign Quandre Diggs

After the Washington Commanders let Kamren Curl walk in favor of the Los Angeles Rams, they could use some more depth at the safety position. Those in power did secure the services of Jeremy Chinn, but he's seen more as a box threat who enjoyed the finest campaign of his professional career closer to the line of scrimmage.

Quandre Diggs might not be the force of old - probably why the Seattle Seahawks made him a salary-cap casualty this offseason - but he's a solid pro with bags of experience. Something that will be needed as the Commanders look to reestablish themselves as an NFL force.

The three-time Pro Bowler didn't cross paths with Dan Quinn in Seattle, but this makes a lot of sense if the Commanders are looking for a leader to assist on their secondary rotation.
