Cole Holcomb’s lost contract year complicates future with Commanders

A gargantuan offseason awaits the Washington Commanders once the season ends. You can say that for most offseason’s, but the 2023 edition will be consequential on many fronts. The list of free agents alone, headlined by Carson Wentz, Daron Payne and Cole Holcomb, puts immense pressure on the front office. Of that trio, Payne feels […] Cole Holcomb’s lost contract year complicates future with Commanders - Riggos Rag - Riggos Rag - Washington Commanders NFL News & Fan Community

Should the Commanders be talking to Center Matt Paradis?

Photo by Mike Stobe/ December street free agency I’m thinking that there could be some benefit to looking at another potential Commanther — 33 year old Matt Paradis — in the wake of Tyler Larsen’s serious injury. At the moment, the choices for the Washington coaching staff look a bit grim; they can roll with Nick Martin for the rest of the season, or they can try to use Wes Schweitzer at center. Both have played the position in 2022, and neither has really shined. Washington was forced to use 4 different centers in 2021, and the same thing happened this season....
