Breakdown of new Commanders OL Andrew Wylie’s contract

The Washington Commanders wasted no time when the legal tampering period opened Monday to begin fixing their offensive line.

Washington quickly agreed to terms with former New York Giants OL Nick Gates and former Kansas City Chiefs OL Andrew Wylie. Both linemen come to Washington with experience playing all across the offensive line.

With multiple holes to fill on the O-line, it was learned that Gates will begin at center, while Wylie is slated to play right tackle, with Sam Cosmi moving inside to guard.

In looking at Wylie’s new contract, it’s clear he’s here to start.

Here’s a comprehensive look at Wylie’s contract, per Over the Cap:

  • Three years, $24 million

  • $8 million average annual value

  • 2023 salary cap charge: $4.17 million [1.8% of the cap]

  • 2023 cash payout: $9.5 million [4.33% of spending]

  • $12 million fully guaranteed

  • Contract ranking: No. 12 among right tackles

  • 2024 salary cap charge: $9.42 million

Wylie is projected as Washington’s starting right tackle, but he can also play guard if needed.
