The Washington Commanders aren’t blessed with great depth along their defensive line. Many rotational pieces are out of contract and might not return. Phidarian Mathis’ lack of impact over his first two years is another cause for concern. This need will be far greater if Jonathan Allen decides to take his chances elsewhere.

If the Commanders decide to bring in a reinforcement or two via free agency, Neville Gallimore is a name to watch. The versatile lineman has been a solid part of the Dallas Cowboys rotation since becoming a third-round selection in 2020. He’s not done enough to earn prominent starting responsibilities, but there could be some merit in acquiring the Oklahoma product on a short-term deal in pursuit of increasing competition.

Another area where the Washington Commanders could look to strengthen this offseason is their wide receiver room. Terry McLaurin remains a consistent performer. Jahan Dotson should get another chance to shine despite not making the strides expected in ear 2 of his professional career. The others – including free-agent Curtis Samuel – might not be so lucky.

This is another tricky conundrum for general manager Adam Peters. He needs to ensure any incoming college signal-caller has the right tools around him to thrive immediately. Identifying a difference-maker through the draft should be considered. Signing a promising free agent or two is also something to ponder if the price is right.

Olamide Zaccheaus might not be the biggest name set to hit the market, but he’s a solid option with versatility and worked with Brian Johnson last season. The 5-foot-8 wideout is a dynamic force with the football in his hands. Even if this wasn’t enough to earn prominent targets following his move to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2023.

Before that, Zaccheaus was a decent performer on the Atlanta Falcons, gaining 97 receptions for 1,328 receiving yards and eight touchdowns over his first four seasons in the league. Expecting him to be a prolific starter is a stretch, but the Commanders might need replacements for the likes of Byron Pringle, Jamison Crowder, and Dyami Brown if the latter becomes surplus to requirements.
