Commanders could sign Aaron Brewer

Aaron Brewer is the only pure center on this list. He didn't always play the position for the Tennessee Titans. He entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2020 primarily as a left guard. After he struggled there in 2022, they shifted him.

At 6-foot-1 and 295 pounds, Brewer is a bit undersized. At guard, he was not effective in power-blocking schemes. But he is a smart player with good feet and profiles better as a center in zone-blocking concepts who can help out with bigger defensive tackles while also getting to the second level and taking on linebackers.

Brewer finished his first full season at center in the top half of Pro Football Focus' position rankings. At 26 years old, he only figures to improve with experience.

He is the only player on this list who would be considered low-priced, figuring to command the kind of mid-range contract the Washington Commanders gave to Nick Gates last season. Signing Brewer would most likely mean that Ricky Stromberg’s future is at guard and that Adam Peters would not be looking for a center in the upcoming draft.

As with many other positions, the Commanders have decisions to make about their free agents as well. Though it’s hard to imagine Tyler Larsen returning under a new coaching staff, Saahdiq Charles’ future is very hard to predict.

If the new regime concludes that he has shown enough promise to hang onto, they might make him an offer as well. But I believe all of the guards on this list - everyone except for Brewer - would constitute an upgrade over what Charles has provided in his four years with the Commanders.
