The Commanders are bringing in some more depth for their offensive front.

Washington is signing guard Trai Turner to a one-year, $3 million deal, a source confirmed to PFT.

Turner started all 17 games for the Steelers last year, playing on a similar one-year, $3 million contract.

Turner previously played for Commanders head coach Ron Rivera with the Panthers for six seasons. Turner went to five consecutive Pro Bowls from 2015-2019 with Carolina. The Panthers traded Turner to the Chargers in 2020 and he played nine games for them that season.

A third-round pick back in 2014, Turner has appeared in 110 games with 106 starts.

  1. I believe the only thing Rivera hasn’t brought with him from Carolina is the team’s kitchen sink!

  2. But if Dallas had signed him this would have been an excellent decision…

  3. Hopefully in 7-10 years, there will be no more players from Carolina that played under Rivera in the league for him to sign to Washington.

  4. This guy exemplified the value of just being a “warm body” on a hideous O-line in Pitt. The Steelers could plug in a cardboard cutout, to replace this thoroughly forgettable guy.
