I also really like the Dalton Schultz and center ideas. I won't pretend to know a lot about Connor Williams but they need a good vet center badly. I was sorry to learn that the FA market for OG looks like a lot of JAGs, I was hoping we could find a solid starter as guards in free agency are pretty cheap.
I suspect we'll only have 3 or 4 current OL still on the roster come camp, and only Cosmi starting. I would use the draft to load up on the interior and T as much as possible, but I doubt we get more than 2 or 3 starters. I agree with pursuing a vet C, but we need to also look at T in FA. There are some candidates. Likewise, a vet and a rookie TE make 100% sense. This is where I wished Howell was the man; we could turn that #2 into a bunch of very useful picks.

Re: Commanders 2024 Free Agency Thread

Franchise tag period runs today through March 5th. Some definite potential names to watch for us.

Can't imagine we'll be tagging anyone.

I meant guys on other teams that hopefully don't get tagged so we can sign them instead.

I know what you meant.

Just saying it's not likely we'll be playing that game this year.

Of course we will. That's why team officials have made such a big deal out of the fact that we have a large amount of cap room.

Signing a solid RT would be huge. Kick Wylie inside if the cap hit is too much and let him compete for LG with a rookie. They absolutely need to find OL in this and the next draft.

I used to love mustard. But I was basic, and still am, lol. I used mustard like the Frank's Red Hot commercial, I put that shit on everything. Steak, pass me the mustard, etc.

Grey poupon is legit, but yeah, it's expensive man. You can buy like a gallon of yellow mustard for the same price as a thimble of G.P.

There's really only one guy I desperately want them to sign in FA no matter the cost.

Bring him back HCDQ!

Mooby/Deion are really gonna love Cooper Dejean. Apparently lots of people will. He's like Troy Apke, but actually an elite football player. Looks to be a 1st rounder and definitely no worse than a 2nd rounder.

No, I don't. I must have completely misunderstood the conversation. Sorry about that.

Re: Commanders 2024 Free Agency Thread

So the salary cap is $255 million. That should put our effective cap space at around 90million

And interestingly per overthecap.com the top three teams with cap space are also the top three draft pick teams: New England Chicago and us
