The Washington Commander currently find themselves in an interesting position as an organization.
The sale of the team still isn’t technically done, and there are still a lot of question marks over the team’s roster.
One of those questions is at the quarterback position, given their turnover over the past several years.
Regardless of who will be throwing them the ball, though, Jahan Dotson recently announced plans for his second season.
“This year, I feel like I’m going crazy. I feel like this is my breakout year. Dotson said on ESPN via the Second Wind podcast and the NFL.

Dotson had the third most receiving yards for the Commanders last season behind Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel.
He only played in 12 games last year, which led to fewer total receiving yards.
The Commanders recognized Dotson’s talent during the 2022 NFL Draft and took him in the first round.
Now, he should have a great chance to succeed this year, provided the quarterback position is under control.
Sam Howell currently tops the depth chart, with Jacoby Brissett right behind him.
Howell was selected in the fifth round last year and appeared in only one game.
His lone start last season resulted in a victory over the Commanders, where Howell threw for 169 yards and a touchdown, adding an interception to the boot.
Can Dotson overcome a quarterback with limited experience?
As he said, he thinks 2023 is his “breakout year”.
The NFC East has some of the best cornerbacks in the league, which is a true test for Dotson’s abilities six times per season.
