Commanders have made no decision on LB Jamin Davis’ 5th-year option

The Washington Commanders have until after next month’s 2024 NFL draft to decide whether to exercise linebacker Jamin Davis’ fifth-year option for 2025.


According to general manager Adam Peters, he and head coach Dan Quinn have yet to decide on Davis.

In reality, what was he supposed to say? If the deadline was this week, there is no way that Washington picks up Davis’ fifth-year option. And nothing can change from now until after the draft to change their minds.

Through three NFL seasons, Davis, the No. 19 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, has yet to play up to his status as a first-round pick. After initially selecting Davis to be a middle linebacker, Washington’s former staff quickly realized he was a better fit on the outside.

Davis has had his share of moments. He’s improved each season, with his best season coming in 2023. Davis had his first career interception and forced two fumbles last season. However, new GM Adam Peters and head coach Dan Quinn went into free agency with the goal of improving at linebacker. The Commanders signed Frankie Luvu and Bobby Wagner, both of whom will start.

That tells you where they are with Davis — for now. If Washington doesn’t pick up the fifth-year option, that doesn’t mean he’s not included in its plans. The 2024 season is a turning point for Davis. Coaching was a real issue for all of Washington’s defensive players in recent years. That will not be an excuse moving forward. Quinn will determine what Davis does best and put him in a position to succeed.

The rest is up to Davis.
