NFL News: Report: Commanders add OL Andrew Wylie, Nick Gates

NFL News: Report: Commanders add OL Andrew Wylie, Nick Gates

Date:


The Washington Commanders agreed to terms with free agent offensive linemen Andrew Wylie and Nick Gates on Monday, multiple outlets reported.

Wylie’s deal is for three years and $24 million and Gates is signing for three years and $16.5 million, with $8 million guaranteed and another $1.5 million available in incentives, per the reports.

Contracts can become official Wednesday, the start of the 2023 league year.

Wylie, 28, played his first five seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, starting 59 of his 71 games and winning two Super Bowl championships.

The 6-foot-5, 304-pound tackle entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Eastern Michigan.

Former Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy was recently hired in the same role by the Commanders.

Gates, 27, has spent his entire four-year career with the New York Giants. He played multiple positions on the line and appeared in 44 games with 29 starts.

Gates broke his left tibia and fibula in a Week 2 game at Washington in 2021. After seven surgeries, he made his return to the lineup last October and played the Giants’ last 10 games, including eight starts.
