Which free agents with connections to the Washington Commanders coaching staff could the team potentially sign in 2024?

Adam Peters wants to build through the draft in pursuit of getting the Washington Commanders back among the contenders. That said, they have plenty of financial resources to spend in free agency if the right opportunities come along.

The Commanders have a chance to speed up their rebuild by acquiring veteran performers set to hit the market. Peters won't be frivolous with his spending like the previous regimes. He wants to do things right and in keeping with the successful methods deployed during his stops before getting a well-deserved promotion.

Every avenue will be explored and no stone left unturned. But there's also the prospect of Dan Quinn's coaching staff banging the table hard for some players they've worked with previously in their quest for a smooth transition.

With this in mind, here are seven enticing free agents with connections to Washington's coaching staff in 2024.

Commanders could sign Ben Bredeson

The Washington Commanders need a makeover on their offensive line. It seems like that's the case every year, which makes it even more important to get things right this time around with a new power structure calling the shots.

Bobby Johnson's arrival as offensive line coach came with mixed reviews. The New York Giants struggled to provide their quarterbacks with adequate protection last season. This became more exposed once mobile signal-caller Daniel Jones suffered a serious knee injury.

Ben Bredeson was a durable piece of the Giants' interior puzzle last season. While his production wasn't exactly stellar, the Commanders could potentially add him as a veteran depth piece if the money is right. However, this will also be dependent on Johnson's opinion of the former fourth-round selection out of Michigan.
