Players reportedly joining the Commanders

Zach Ertz

The Commanders have reportedly bolstered their tight end room by agreeing to terms with veteran Zach Ertz, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Ertz, a second-round pick by the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, has played in 151 games with 113 starts over the course of his 12-year career. A mainstay of the Eagles' offense for nine seasons, Ertz has established a reputation as one of the more reliable tight ends in the past decade.

Ertz's best stretch came from 2015-19, when he averaged 914.4 yards per game and scored 28 touchdowns. In 2018, he set a career-high by leading the Eagles with 1,163 and eight score, earning his second of three total Pro Bowls. Ertz also played a role in helping the Eagles win a Super Bowl in 2017, catching an 11-yard touchdown pass from Nick Foles in the fourth quarter.

Ertz was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in 2021, where he spent 21 games with Commanders offensive coordinator Kliff Kingsbury. During that span, Ertz caught 103 passes for 980 yards and seven touchdowns.

DE Dorance Armstrong

The Commanders have reportedly agreed to terms with former Dallas Cowboys defensive end Dorance Armstrong, per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, providing them with a veteran pass-rusher who drastically improved with Dan Quinn as his defensive coordinator.

Armstrong, a fourth-round pick by the Cowboys in 2018, has played in 93 games with 14 starts. Although not a full-time starter, Armstrong has been a vital piece of the the Cowboys' pass-rush since 2021, accumulating 21 of his 23.5 sacks during that span.

While first-round pick Micah Parsons has been one of the Cowboys' best when it comes to harassing quarterbacks, Armstrong has not been far behind him. He has the second-most sacks on the team since 2021, and with Quinn as his defensive coordinator, Armstrong hit career highs in overall defensive grade (70.1), tackling (83.4) and pass-rushing (70.1), according to PFF.

C Tyler Biadasz

The Commanders are reportedly continuing to dip into the Cowboys' talent pool by agreeing to terms with veteran center Tyler Biadasz, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, giving them an answer to a position that has been through multiple starters since the 2020 season.

Biadasz, a fourth-round pick by the Cowboys in 2020, has appeared in 61 games with 53 starts. For the last three seasons, he's been an anchor for the Cowboys' offensive line, allowing just three sacks in that span. PFF has given him a positive grade in each of his three seasons as a full-time starter.

Biadasz's best season came in 2022, when he was selected to the Pro Bowl for allowing zero sacks and just three quarterback hits on 576 pass-blocking snaps.

LB Frankie Luvu

The Commanders are reportedly bolstering their linebacker corps by agreeing to terms with former Carolina Panther Frankie Luvu, per Tom Pelissero.

Luvu, an undrafted free agent from Washington State, has spent the last three seasons with the Panthers after starting his career with the New York Jets. He's appeared in 88 games with 39 starts, recording 338 tackles with 20.5 sacks, three fumble recoveries and five forced fumbles.

Like Armstrong, Luvu has improved dramatically over the past two seasons. More than half of his career sacks (12.5) have come since 2022, and he's recorded at least 100 tackles in each season.

RB Austin Ekeler

The Commanders have reportedly added veteran running back Austin Ekeler, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, bolstering their backfield with one of the most versatile offensive weapons available this offseason. 

Though Ekeler is an older running back, he fits the bill of what modern running backs look like in the NFL. He's just as potent of a runner as he is as a receiver, accounting for 3,884 receiving yards and 30 touchdowns. The 2023 season wasn't one of his most productive seasons, but accounting for over 1,000 scrimmage yards is still a solid season for any running back.

Over the last three seasons, Ekeler has recorded 4,259 yards and 44 touchdowns. From 2021-22, Ekeler led the league in total touchdowns with 20 in 2021 and 18 in 2022.
