It's been a monumental offseason of change for the Washington Commanders. Adam Peters promised landmark alterations as part of his more professional, business-first ethos. Looking at how things went throughout the spring, it's clear he didn't have a high opinion of Ron Rivera's roster construction over his four years at the helm.

Peters is a supreme talent evaluator. He's also shown ruthlessness over his first few months in the role. Many holdovers from Rivera's tenure were either released ahead of time or moved on in free agency. This is a trend that might continue depending on how things evolve before Week 1 at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

This approach within the front office should keep everyone on their toes. Those who survived Peters' initial roster cull must raise their respective performance levels. Otherwise, they'll be shown the door at some stage before the regular season arrives.

With this in mind, here are four Commanders holdovers from the previous regime who could be cut following the team's training camp in 2024.

Armani Rogers - Commanders TE

Armani Rogers endured the worst luck imaginable last season. Many believed the promising tight end was in line for a potential breakout campaign after flashing promise from limited involvement in 2022. This positivity was shattered after the player suffered a torn Achilles during the first practice session of organized team activities.

This put Rogers on season-ending injured reserve. The Washington Commanders bolstered their tight end options this offseason with the arrivals of Zach Ertz and second-round selection Ben Sinnott. John Bates should make the team thanks to his blocking capabilities, which makes it difficult for those further down the pecking order to firmly establish themselves.

The Commanders are giving Rogers a chance to earn his spot at camp. How the former Ohio star performs during preseason games will also go a long way to determining his fate.

Rogers has the size and athleticism to make an impact. Even if he doesn't make the initial 53-man roster, keeping him around on the practice squad if he clears waivers will be something Adam Peters and his staff contemplate.
