Adam Peters had a monumental task on his hands heading into the offseason. The Washington Commanders entrusted him with a rich bounty of assets to turn this wayward organization around. Huge alterations to the playing personnel were expected and the general manager duly delivered.

There was a level of conviction, professionalism, and long-term strategic planning that was seldom seen under previous regimes. Peters has been around the game for a long time. He's waited years to find the right opportunity. After identifying the Commanders as exactly that following lengthy conversations with Josh Harris' ownership group, he's keen to make the most of it.

Washington's roster looks almost unrecognizable from the one that concluded Ron Rivera's final campaign as head coach. There is fresh energy in the building with everyone pulling in the same direction. Fans are optimistic, although expecting Dan Quinn to immediately oversee strides into playoff contention is unrealistic, at least initially.

With the dust settling on a frantic recruitment period, here are seven former Commanders players that Peters was right to part ways during the 2024 offseason.

Saahdiq Charles - Former Commanders OL

The Washington Commanders offensive line was nothing short of embarrassing last season. Offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy put too much pressure on the struggling unit with a pass-heavy scheme, but only right guard Sam Cosmi reached or exceeded expectations during his genuine breakout campaign.

This was another season where Saahdiq Charles flattered to deceive. The former LSU star was given countless chances to impose himself throughout his stint in Washington. Injuries and poor production meant moving in a different direction this offseason was almost guaranteed.

Charles left with little fanfare attached, signing a one-year deal with the Tennessee Titans. Whether the new additions provide an upgrade for the Commanders remains to be seen, but Adam Peters wasn't going to sit on his hands and do nothing in pursuit of progress.
