Jamin Davis - Commanders LB

Adam Peters was not going to overlook the linebacking corps, which became an ongoing complication under Ron Rivera. The Washington Commanders moved swiftly to significantly upgrade their defensive second level, bringing in two prolific performers and adding depth for good measure.

Frankie Luvu and Bobby Wagner bring energy, experience, and proven production. Anthony Pittman is a decent backup piece and an outstanding special teams force. Dan Quinn also has the option to move Jeremy Chinn closer to the line of scrimmage when the situation dictates.

This could help Jamin Davis more than anybody. The former first-round pick was almost flying solo last year as everyone around him failed to meet expectations. With Wagner and Luvu providing a security blanket of sorts, it could allow Quinn to utilize the four-year pro more on the edge to maximize his supreme athletic gifts.

It appears unlikely that the Commanders will trigger Davis' fifth-year option, although nothing has been confirmed one way or the other by those in power as yet. Regardless, this is a make-or-break upcoming campaign for the player, who has no more excuses thanks to recent signings and finally having a defensive scheme willing to get creative.

Davis has the talent, there's no getting away from that. Hopefully, Quinn and Joe Whitt Jr. can become the spark that ignites his true potential.
