Which Washington Commanders players heading into the final year of their contracts probably won't be around when the 2024 campaign begins?

This is an interesting time for the Washington Commanders, to put it mildly. With Josh Harris' group of investors looking to put the finishing touches on their documentation before receiving formal NFL approval to purchase the franchise from Dan Snyder for $6.05 billion, it's not hard to see why certain individuals could be nervously looking over their shoulders.

Ron Rivera has remained focused on roster improvements, but the head coach freely admitted working with restrictions and everything is currently on hold regarding any further financial commitments until the sale becomes official.

This also applies to players who are looking for some additional financial security. The Commanders cannot provide this currently and might not want to at all if the Harris groups opt to hit the reset button when the time is right.

With this in mind, here are four pending Commanders free agents that probably won't be back in 2024.

Joey Slye - Commanders K

One could make a case that Joey Slye's spot should be under significant threat this offseason after an inconsistent start to life with the Washington Commanders. However, Ron Rivera is confident enough not to bring in any competition whatsoever for his place.

This is a weird way to go about things regarding someone that converted just 83.3 percent of his field goals last season. Rivera knows the kicker well from their time together on the Carolina Panthers, which is obviously playing a role in his thought process ahead of a make-or-break campaign for the head coach.

If Slye does start the season and fails to make the necessary improvements, then the chances of him getting another contract is remote at best.
