Which Washington Commanders players could be early cut candidates in 2024 based on what we've witnessed up to the midseason point?

Great change is coming to the Washington Commanders. That much we do now amid all the uncertainty.

Josh Harris' ownership group has spent the last few months assessing everything associated with the franchise, including the football operation. They now feel comfortable about involving themselves when it comes to matters in this area, which means it promises to be an intriguing few months before and during the 2024 offseason.

This all centers around the futures of head coach Ron Rivera and others in positions of power. The Commanders could also free up additional funds on their salary cap despite having $91.54 million available to spend currently.

Harris' group has already laid out their intentions to make sacrifices if needed by trading Montez Sweat and Chase Young. But which players could be early-cut candidates at the 2023 midseason point?

All financial figures provided by Over the Cap.

Commanders could cut Camaron Cheeseman

  • Cap savings - $1.05 million
  • Dead money - $32,676

Things have settled down for long-snapper Camaron Cheeseman after a rocky start to the campaign. However, if the Washington Commanders feel like a better option is out there, they would be foolish not to explore the possibility.

This comes with minimal financial savings attached. But if Cheeseman wants to see out his contract with the Commanders in 2024, the former sixth-round selection must finish the season on a positive note.
