Commanders could sign Mike Williams

The Washington Commanders have been relatively quiet on the offensive side of the football. Their offensive line was the big priority - especially on the interior - with Zach Ertz also coming in to provide potential assistance as a pass-catching tight end. So far, general manager Adam Peters has failed to address the wide receiver room.

Jamison Crowder was re-signed, but he's seen as more of a depth piece and return specialist at this stage of his career. Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson will have a big part to play. It might also be worth the Commanders identifying a big-bodied receiver capable of making a lasting contribution on the outside to help their quarterback - whoever that might be.

This is a loaded draft class that Peters could - and should - utilize at some stage. If the Commanders want to think a little bigger, placing a call to Mike Williams' representatives would be a good place to start.

Williams became a salary-cap casualty hours before the new league year began as the Los Angeles Chargers looked to get under the salary cap. He is coming off a torn ACL - which is a concern - but the former Clemson star is a genuine difference-maker. He also offers something the Commanders don't have right now.

Much will depend on the money involved. Williams is also expected to be coveted heavily by other teams, but the Commanders could do far worse than throw their hat in the ring given the upside attached to this potential addition.
