Adam Peters left no stone unturned this offseason. Big changes were expected across the Washington Commanders under Josh Harris' ownership group, something the general manager implemented with ruthless efficiency in pursuit of bringing the glory days back to this once-proud franchise.

The amount of roster turnover Peters undertook throughout the recruitment period was extraordinary. According to Over the Cap, Washington has the fewest players returning to the organization from last season at 57 percent. This is a drastic course of action, but one that was necessary after how things unfolded throughout Ron Rivera's tenure.

Whether this amounts to immediate improvements is another matter. Meshing so many new faces in such a short space of time is going to be challenging for head coach Dan Quinn and his staff. Pressing the panic button would be foolish if things don't start well immediately, but fans are expecting to see some improvements looking at the upgrades in starting quality and depth.

This also increases competition for places, which is never a bad thing. With this in mind, here are seven Commanders players who are firmly on the 53-man roster bubble after Peters' offseason overhaul in 2024.

Jeff Driskel - Commanders QB

The Washington Commanders have their potential franchise quarterback locked up after selecting Jayden Daniels at No. 2 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft. Those in power secured the services of veteran Marcus Mariota to back up and mentor the Heisman Trophy winner out of LSU. After that, it's going to be an interesting battle for the No. 3 spot.

Jeff Driskel seems to be in the driving seat right now. The dependable veteran isn't ever going to set the world alight, but he's solid enough if the Commanders opt to take a third signal-caller onto the roster. However, Jake Fromm isn't without a chance and there is also the presence of Sam Hartman to factor into the equation.

After going undrafted, the Commanders made acquiring the former Notre Dame quarterback one of their high priorities during undrafted free agency. He's got a lot to learn, but this represents more long-term upside than bringing Driskel through if they go with three at football's most important position.
