Washington Commanders Signing Veteran Center

The Washington Commanders have had an up and down start to the 2022 NFL campaign, as they followed up a Week 1 win over the Jaguars with a loss to the Detroit Lions, and today, they have signed some reinforcements to the offensive line that is looking to protect Carson Wentz. With that in mind, the Commanders have brought in veteran Nick Martin, who was drafted in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans.

Martin has also spent time with the Las Vegas Raiders and the New Orleans Saints practice squad, and after appearing in 72 games over his career, with 63 starts, it's certainly a very good move for the Commanders, who are looking to compete in a very fun and tough NFC East division. 

Carson Wentz and the Commanders have been more than solid to start the 2022 season, so this extra insurance policy is going to help protect him going forward, and if the defence can step up, this team is good enough to make a genuine playoff run in 2022. Chase Young will be back soon too, and if he can get back to the form he showed when he first arrived in the NFL, this team could be a dark horse in the NFC, and Martin, a veteran will be a great leader and player for this team going forward.
