Which Washington Commanders players could be living on borrowed time after Adam Peters' roster upheaval during 2024 free agency?

Adam Peters wasn't going to sit idly during his first offseason as Washington Commanders general manager. He's waited a long time for this opportunity, so seeing him act with purpose and conviction as part of the team's new collaborative approach represented a refreshing change of pace.

Peters has gutted the roster during a frantic period of free agency. The Commanders look to be in a better spot now than when the 2023 campaign concluded. There's also the small matter of nine draft picks - six in the top 100 including No. 2 overall - to give this substantial revamp another major boost.

Everyone should be on their toes and have an extra sense of urgency. For some, there is a huge challenge ahead in pursuit of convincing those in power they are worthy of contributing to Washington's ambitious plans for growth.

With this in mind, here are four Commanders players who are living on borrowed time after Peters' free agency upheaval.

Dax Milne - Commanders WR/KR

The Washington Commanders opted to bring back Jamison Crowder on a one-year deal. His production as a kick returner last season warranted another look under the new regime. This doesn't bode well for Dax Milne's chances of re-establishing himself after missing the previous campaign through injury.

Milne wasn't exactly a big-time contributor before going down. With a fresh set of eyes and different ideas, the BYU college standout has to impress a different staff all over again. Couple this with the recent addition of Olamidae Zaccheaus to bolster the wide receiver room, it's not hard to see why the player has his work cut out this offseason.
