The Washington Commanders are busy making every practice count as preparations gather pace for the 2024 season. It hardly seems like there's been an offseason at all considering the developments across the franchise. But for the first time in months, the focus is turning to the football side of things rather than hiring and recruitment.

Things are looking up, there's no getting away from that. Adam Peters has done his part by revamping the roster while also acknowledging that the hard work is just beginning. The pressure now falls on Dan Quinn and his coaching staff to put their plans for a more productive product in all phases into action.

Expectations are growing, but it could go either way. The Commanders need their new signings and draft picks to hit the ground running. They also need some around previously to enhance their contributions after most lacked motivation last time around.

The stakes couldn't be higher for some. With this in mind, here are four Commanders players whose stock could crash beyond repair in 2024.

Chris Paul - Commanders OL

It looked for a long time as if Chris Paul would get a legitimate chance to firmly establish himself as the starting left guard in 2023. However, injuries and poor production meant it was another underwhelming campaign for the interior offensive lineman.

Paul's pass protection was once again exposed. He turned out in 438 snaps, giving up one penalty and conceding five sacks. The former seventh-round pick was unable to make his presence felt on running plays, so it came as no surprise to see Pro Football Focus give him a woeful 38.8 grade as a result of his efforts.

The Washington Commanders signed Nick Allegretti to become their starting left guard under the new regime. This demotes Paul further down the depth chart with an uncertain future attached.

If he does see the field, anything less than significant improvements will come with grave consequences attached. Paul is not only fighting for his Commanders' future, but another indifferent season could see the entire league turn their back on the Tulsa product.
