Todd Storm - Commanders TE coach

Todd Storm moved up from assistant when Juan Castillo was promoted. Like Travelle Wharton, he came to the now-Washington Commanders in 2020 with Ron Rivera and initially served as the offensive quality control coach - an entry-level position.

Storm is one of the team’s youngest coaches. Also like Wharton, he may turn out to be a great offensive mind down the road,.But based on his unit’s performance in 2023, there are not many positive things to latch onto.

The tight ends as a group did not perform any worse than they did over the last two years. But with a more talented quarterback and Eric Bieniemy’s penchant for throwing the football almost constantly, it would have been reasonable to expect more.

Most disturbingly, second-year player Cole Turner has shown virtually nothing. He should be much farther along in his development. Especially given the flashes the former Nevada star demonstrated throughout Washington's summer training camp.

The fact is, the Commanders haven't had productive tight end play since Logan Thomas’ breakout season in 2020. He got hurt the next year and Washington's underwhelming position group has never really recovered.

GRADE: D
