Commanders expected to sign Cowboys center Tyler Biadasz

The Washington Commanders are busy filling key positions early during the legal tampering period, and head coach Dan Quinn is reaching back to his roots to fill those holes.

Washington agreed to terms with former Cowboys defensive end Dorance Armstrong early in the legal tampering period on Monday. Shortly afterward, the Commanders found their next center, agreeing to terms with former Cowboys center Tyler Biadasz.

Biadasz comes to Washington after four years in Dallas, where he appeared in 61 games with 53 starts. Biadasz took over as the Cowboys center late in his rookie season and remained there over the next three seasons.

Biadasz reportedly agreed to a three-year deal worth $30 million, according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post.

A fourth-round pick out of Wisconsin in 2020, Biadasz made the Pro Bowl in 2022.

The Commanders signed Nick Gates to a three-year deal last offseason to be the team’s starting center, but Gates was benched after Week 7. Washington will release Gates at the start of the new league year on Wednesday.

Armstrong and Biadasz can’t officially sign with the Commanders until 4 p.m. ET Wednesday.
