The new Washington Commanders regime led by Adam Peters and Dan Quinn made it known they were not afraid to make wholesale changes to the roster after so much failure. They are not going to let players who hold the team back this season eat up space on the depth chart or the salary cap.

Even though this is a new era with an almost completely revamped roster for the Commanders, there are still a few players acquired during the Ron Rivera years who have not lived up to expectations. Their respective statuses are hanging precariously after an influx of fresh faces throughout the preparation period.

Four Commanders players are very much living on borrowed time entering the 2024 season, starting with an underachieving Day 2 selection.

Dyami Brown - Commanders WR

Dyami Brown was drafted in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft out of North Carolina. This was a wide receiver many were excited about and thought would slot into that WR2 role opposite Terry McLaurin. This hasn't materialized as yet.

Brown failed to gain any meaningful role in the Commanders’ offense. His best receiving year was in 2023 when he had 12 receptions for 168 receiving yards and a touchdown. He is now the WR4 on the depth chart after Luke McCaffrey came into the fold.

This front office might add at least one more pass catcher in the offseason. That would plunge Brown further down the pecking order heading into a contract year. Maximizing every rep throughout the summer and becoming a viable vertical threat for rookie quarterback Jayden Daniels is imperative.

Brown must earn game snaps and make the most of them. Whether they are special teams or offensive snaps, the wideout must prove his worth and make plays when it counts. That is the only way he can galvanize his career.
