Bold predictions for the Washington Commanders as they embark on one of the most important offseasons in franchise history.
It's been two weeks since the Washington Commanders formally concluded their regular-season engagements. To say the franchise has been busy over the last fortnight would be a huge understatement.
Ron Rivera is gone. Interviews are ongoing for the head coaching job. The Commanders struck with early conviction by making Adam Peters their new general manager. This was the exact statement of intent Josh Harris' ownership group was looking for.
This is just the start of Harris' grand plan to get the Commanders back among the contenders. Once the new head coach arrives, expect the playing personnel matters to be frantic as Peters molds the roster into a more competitive unit.
After so much disappointment in recent years, it's nice for fans to have some semblance of hope once again. Looking ahead, we picked out four bold predictions for the Commanders' 2024 offseason.
Commanders re-sign Kendall Fuller
One could forgive Kendall Fuller for wanting a fresh start once the free-agent frenzy commences. The veteran was the secondary's best performer by a considerable margin. This won't go unnoticed by other teams around the league looking for immediate cornerback assistance.
The Washington Commanders have a fight on their hands keeping Fuller, in all honesty. Much will also depend on his financial demands given this is likely to be his final big contract. Spotrac predicts the player to command an annual salary of $14 million on a three-year, $42.27 million deal.
All signs point to Fuller departing the ranks. But don't be surprised if new general manager Adam Peters can convince the former third-round selection out of Virginia Tech to stick around.
