2022 Mock Offseason - Commanders Trade for a Wide Receiver; Move Back Into First Round for a Quarterback

NFL: Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

There is no doubt coach Ron Rivera needs to make a FEW splashes this spring to correlate with the new rebrand, and help fans get excited again after yet another lack-luster season in 2021 (although the only excitement that may REALLY get fans back is if Dan Synder is forced to sell).

Russell Wilson is the big name on everyone’s radar at the moment, but in this mock offseason, I have assumed we at least tried to acquire, but struck out, on Wilson - so on to plan B.

Commanders Extend:

- Terry McLaurin: 4yrs/$74M

Commanders Re-Sign:

- Tim Settle: 3yrs/$24M

- J.D. McKissic: 2yrs/$9M

- DeAndre Carter: 1yr/$2M


- Commanders send 2022 1st round pick and Daron Payne to Falcons for wide receiver Calvin Ridley

*Ridley is playing on his 5th year option in 2022 at $11M

Free Agents:

- Jameis Winston QB (Age - 28): 2 years, $22M

- Connor Williams G (Age - 25): 4 years, $50M

- Marcus Williams FS (Age - 26): 4 years, $42M

- Anthony Walker Jr. ILB (Age- 26): 3 years, $15M

2022 NFL Draft:

*I used The Draft Network’s mock draft simulator to help in this exercise

Trade: Commanders trade 2022 2nd and 2023 1st to Lions (via LA Rams) for Pick 32

1st (Pick 32): Sam Howell QB UNC (Washington gets that 5th year option)

3rd: Jalen Wydermyer TE Texas A&M

4th: Nick Cross S Maryland

6th: Master Teague RB Ohio St.

7th: Luke Fortner iOL Kentucky
