The Washington Commanders continue their offseason practices as they prepare for the season opener against the Arizona Cardinals on September 10th at FedEx Field. NFL teams were required to cut their rosters down to 53 players yesterday. Washington cut 32 players, placed 5 on IR, to form their initial 53-man roster, but they are not done making changes to the roster.

Teams will be able to form 16 player practice squads today after 12pm. Waiver claims will be processed until 12pm, and any players claimed have to be signed to that team's roster. Washington is #16 on the waiver priority list based on their finish last season. Vested veterans can be signed after their release and do not go through the waiver process at this point in the league year.

Following along here as we track all the moves.
