What bold trades could Washington Commanders general manager Adam Peters consider to speed up the team's upcoming rebuild?

Adam Peters wasted no time in setting out his stall. He is determined to make the Washington Commanders a legitimate force after years of languishing in the NFL wilderness. He wants to build through the draft and supplement through free agency. There might even be room for a bold trade or two along the way.

The Commanders need to be smarter when it comes to roster building. Ron Rivera's squad lacked sufficient depth and he couldn't successfully solve the quarterback spot. Four consecutive losing seasons under his leadership told their own story.

Peters is looking to change all that. He came from a San Francisco 49ers front-office operation that capitalized heavily on the trade market. Something he could exploit as Washington's premier roster decision-maker if the right opportunities come along.

With this in mind, here are four bold trades the Commanders could consider with Peters leading the charge in 2024.

Commanders could trade for No. 1 pick

We'll get this one out of the way first. Kliff Kinsbury's arrival as Washington Commanders' offensive coordinator immediately came with speculation about a daring trade up to No. 1 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft for Caleb Williams. The quarterback and the play-caller worked closely together at USC last season. Therefore, the connection is obvious.

While some fans are clamoring for the Commanders to give up substantial assets for Williams - which would enable him to lead his hometown team back to potential prominence - it's not that simple. Adam Peters could put in a call, but the Chicago Bears hold all the cards and might not spurn the opportunity to take a promising signal-caller from the college ranks at No. 1 overall for the second straight year.

A lot could happen between now and draft night. But this is looking increasingly like a pipedream.
