Grading the latest five Washington Commanders offseason moves, including their decision surrounding stud defensive tackle Jonathan Allen.

Although the Washington Commanders and others around the league are quickly turning their attention to the 2024 NFL Draft, general manager Adam Peters is still wheeling and dealing. He's made an impressive start to life as the front-office leader, installing a more professional approach across the board and working as a cohesive unit with other influential figures within the building.

There is a lot of hard work ahead, but the Commanders are off to a good start. Peters still has plenty of cash to further strengthen the roster if the right opportunities come along. There's also the small matter of nine draft picks - six in the top 100 - which is another great opportunity to find long-term solutions for ongoing complications.

Peters is keeping cards close to his chest right now, especially where the No. 2 overall selection is concerned. The roster looks in better shape following a flurry of activity over the last few weeks, but it will count for nothing if the Commanders cannot secure the right quarterback to take this franchise forward.

Before that, we took a look and graded the latest five Commanders off-season moves, including their stance surrounding stud defensive tackle Jonathan Allen.

Commanders let Casey Toohill walk

Casey Toohill got a big opportunity during the 2023 season. After flashing promise from a rotational role, he was thrust into the starting lineup once the Washington Commanders traded Montez Sweat and Chase Young before the deadline. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to capitalize accordingly.

Grade: B+

Toohill gained just one sack over the second half of the campaign. It came as no surprise to see the Commanders bring in defensive line reinforcements during free agency, leaving the former seventh-round selection on the outside looking in. He eventually joined the Buffalo Bills on a one-year deal, which is a pretty good landing spot for the player all things considered.
