Which interior offensive lineman could the Washington Commanders potentially target in free agency if they hit the open market?

In 2019, the team now known as the Washington Commanders had a very solid interior offensive line. Perennial Pro Bowler Brandon Scherff manned one guard spot and a rejuvenated Ereck Flowers was on the other side. Between them, a low-round draft success - Chase Roullier - played center. They were all young veterans just entering their primes.

Bad luck and bad decisions blew it all up. Roullier suffered a string of injuries that ended his career. Flowers was allowed to leave. Scherff fled the sinking ship as soon as he could.

The Commanders struggled mightily with failed draft picks and suspect free agents in their effort to rebuild. Except for Sam Cosmi - a converted offensive tackle who was forced to move inside in pursuit of filling a glaring hole - they have been largely unsuccessful.

It would not be at all surprising to see new general manager Adam Peters invest heavily in the offensive line during the upcoming draft. There are several talented options at guard and center. The Commanders are also rich in assets.

Though it may be possible to still salvage interior linemen like Saahdiq Charles and Nick Gates, the odds are Washington will enter the 2024 season with at least two new offensive linemen, and possibly as many as four. Even though the Commanders signed Gates and starting right tackle Andrew Wylie last offseason, look for them to invest in at least one more starting caliber interior presence in this year’s free agency period.

Here are six candidates for Washington to consider.
