Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as preparations continue for the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine?

After the NFL announced a much larger salary-cap hike than many anticipated, the Washington Commanders are in an even better position to make improvements this offseason. It's an embarrassment of riches for general manager Adam Peters. Extracting maximum value could tell us plenty about how long this rebuild is going to take.

It's not just free agency taking up the attention of those in power. The NFL Scouting Combine is right around the corner. As we've seen in previous years, this is a good time to firmly cement draft boards, speak to agents regarding contract extensions, and perhaps even examine trade opportunities if the right opportunities present themselves.

While we wait for further developments, the stories generating conversation include Ryan Kerrigan's gratitude, when Peters and Dan Quinn will speak at the Combine, Eric Bieniemy's next stop, and the prospect of trading back from No. 2 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Adam Peters and Dan Quinn to speak at NFL Scouting Combine

The Washington Commanders have a plethora of high-end draft picks at their disposal in 2024. Therefore, one should expect to see Adam Peters and Dan Quinn prominent at scouting events and pro days leading up to the big weekend. Arguably the biggest of all is the NFL Scouting Combine, which will be a hotbed of activity over the next few days in Indianapolis.

There will also be a chance for media members to perhaps get some clues about how Washington's new power couple might approach the offseason. Peters will talk to reporters on Tuesday, February 27 at 11.30 a.m. Eastern Time. Quinn's time on the podium has been scheduled for Wednesday at 1.00 p.m.

It's unlikely either Quinn or Peters will be giving too much away, especially where the No. 2 pick is concerned. But there should be a few interesting tidbits to whet the appetite heading into a pivotal recruitment period.
