Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines following a frantic first wave of 2024 free agency for the franchise?

Nobody expected the Washington Commanders to sit on their hands during free agency. Adam Peters was loaded with $96 million in salary-cap space and several significant holes on the roster. The new general manager got straight down to business thanks to a flurry of signings that caught the eye of everyone around the league.

It wasn't reckless spending by any stretch of the imagination. Peters was organized with his acquisitions and acted with supreme conviction. He found the right characters - some with previous connections to the coaching staff. More importantly, he kept financial flexibility for additional moves throughout the offseason and the future.

This has only raised hope about what the Commanders could accomplish with Peters leading the charge. There is more to do, but the front-office leader is off to a tremendous start.

Of course, the headlines have been plentiful along the way. The stories accumulating column inches include how Washington's early free agency is being perceived, focusing on Jayden Daniels, Bobby Wagner's ambition, and an offensive tackle target emerging.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders to host Jordan Morgan

All signs point to the Washington Commanders finding their franchise left tackle via the draft based on their free agency moves up to now. Adam Peters has six selections in the top 100 - more than any franchise. Building through the draft is also high on his list of priorities, so a blindside enforcer could be their second move once a quarterback is chosen at No. 2 overall.

According to Ryan Fowler from The Draft Network, the Commanders plan to host Jordan Morgan for one of the top 30 visits. This suggests they are at least intrigued by the offensive tackle prospect within a deep draft class. Another matter is whether he'll be around when Washington goes on the clock in Round No. 2.
