Brian Johnson Could Lure Eagles TE Jack Stoll to the Commanders

The Commanders had a bottom-10 offense last season. A big part of that had to do with their lackluster run game, which averaged the seventh-fewest rushing yards per game. Although often playing from behind had a lot to do with that abysmal production, it wouldn't hurt to improve their run-blocking situation this offseason.

If Johnson wants to prove the Commanders' run-blocking, he could try to entice free-agent tight end Jack Stoll to join the roster. While the 26-year-old veteran doesn't put up offensive numbers like Travis Kelce or Sam LaPorta, he's one of the best TEs when it comes to blocking.

His 63.6 PFF run-block grade ranked fifth-best among TEs who played at least 200 run-block downs in 2023. For reference, Cole Turner was the only Commanders TE with a better grade (68.3), however, he only played 52 run-block downs whereas Stoll played 259.

Even though the Commanders don't need Stoll, there's no denying that his presence would upgrade their run-block situation. That's why it shouldn't be surprising if Johnson tries to lure the ex-Cornhusker, too.
