Commanders will see several top 30 Players over 30 in 2023

Pro Football Focus recently ranked the top 30 players who will be over 30 when Week 1 of the NFL season begins.

Instantly there was a Washington factor that was noticed, and secondly, Washington will face several of these players.

Two former Washington Redskins made the list. In fact, the top-ranked player on this list is former Washington offensive tackle Trent Williams.  Williams continues to roll, playing at a very high level. He earned a 91.7 overall grade in 2022, continuing his dominance as a run-blocker and allowing just 19 pressures and only one sack across 17 games.

Coming in at No. 16 of the top 30 players over 30 is former Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins. Cousins did have a career-high 23 turnover-worthy plays but also a career-high 31 big-time plays.
