Expectations are growing around the Washington Commanders and their chances for improved fortunes in 2024. Adam Peters has undertaken a drastic roster overhaul in pursuit of getting things trending in a positive direction after decades of perennial misery. There's a long-term plan in place, but it would be a huge shock if this new-look squad wasn't more competitive with new head coach Dan Quinn leading the charge.

Players seem fully bought in and reinvigorated with a fresh set of ideas and schematic concepts being implemented. There's a completely different feel around the building, but improving the football product will set things up for future prosperity when the upcoming campaign arrives.

Quinn is an accomplished coach and used his outstanding contacts across the league to mold the best possible staff to help achieve his goals. It'll be a crash course for every member of the roster throughout the preparation period. If everything comes together right away, the Commanders might be able to surprise a few when the time comes.

With this newfound positivity, here are four Commanders players who look primed for genuine breakout seasons in 2024.

Jamin Davis - Commanders LB

Although Jamin Davis has achieved 269 tackles and seven sacks over his first three seasons, there's been something missing where the linebacker is concerned. Looking at the moves made by the Washington Commanders this offseason, it could indicate that head coach Dan Quinn has a different plan in place for the former first-round pick out of Kentucky.

With the Commanders signing Frankie Luvu and Bobby Wagner in free agency, all signs point to Davis being deployed on the edge more frequently. This is something fans have been clamoring for given the physical tools at his disposal. If anyone can help the second-level presence unlock his true potential, it's Quinn.

There is plenty of incentive for Davis to take his game to new heights in 2024. The Commanders didn't pick up the player's fifth-year option as expected, so a breakout campaign could see a lucrative contract extension come his way next spring as a result.
