2. LB Bobby Wagner and LB Frankie Luvu, Washington Commanders

A two for one special from the Commanders. Washington completely remade their linebacker corps in free agency, as freshly minted head coach Dan Quinn led the charge, bringing in Bobby Wagner and Frankie Luvu.

Wagner’s reputation precedes him. He was a star with the Seattle Seahawks, and had success during his time with the Los Angeles Rams, as well. His one-off return to Seattle last season proved he can still get the job done, and he’s a bonafide leader that Washington’s defense sorely needs.

He’s more than worth a one-year deal, but Luvu was a fantastic value signing for the Commanders, as well. He’ll come to the team for three seasons, and look to change the face of the Commanders defense. 

Before joining the Commanders, he became a star with the Panthers. While he was in Carolina, Luvu showed he could rush the passer and clean plays up, racking up the stats throughout his time with the Panthers. His versatility is strong, and that’s part of why Washington paid a premium. 

One of the weakest parts of the Commanders team last season was their defense, and their linebacking corps was part of their downfall. They mitigated that problem with these two signings ahead of a new era.
