Commanders CB Kendall Fuller's future

General manager Adam Peters has plenty of important decisions to make. He's got some impressive resources at his disposal to speed up the Washington Commanders' upcoming rebuild. Deciding on contract extensions would be another high priority to kick off his first offseason in the prominent front-office position of power.

Some will be moved on. The future of others could go either way. There are a couple who should be retained if there is a mutual interest. According to The 33rd Team's NFL analysis division, cornerback Kendall Fuller is one of them thanks to how well he'd fit into Dan Quinn's defensive scheme.

"The Washington Commanders were a mess on defense last season, but Kendall Fuller was one of the few bright spots. He played in the slot and on the outside for Washington and had another strong year. With Dan Quinn coming to town, Fuller will be a key player in his defense. Fuller turns 29 in February, but look for Washington to keep him around as they try to rebuild the defense."

Fuller was one of the few Commanders' defensive players to emerge from the campaign with any credit. He'll likely demand eight figures per season to stick around. There's also a chance he wants to get his last big contract on a team that harbors better hopes of contenting.

If Peters can convince Fuller this is a project worth being part of, it would represent a major statement of intent.
