The Commanders interviewed for a top front office executive while keeping their general manager in a holding pattern.
Martin Mayhew wasn’t sacked along with coach Ron Rivera, but the team conducted a reevaluation under new front office boss Adam Peters.
Peters’ San Francisco past looked to reopen the door to Mayhew staying in Washington; the two worked together with the 49ers.
It looks like that will end up happening. Mayhew is en route to Senior Bowl workouts in Mobile, Ala., with Commanders staffers this week, according to ESPN.com’s John Keim, who indicates the former Washington GM is expected to stay with the team in 2024.
Hired to work alongside Rivera in 2021, Mayhew came to Washington after four years on John Lynch‘s staff. Lynch brought in both Peters and Mayhew in 2017; the latter finished his 49ers tenure as the team’s VP of player personnel. Mayhew’s new Washington title is not yet known, but it appears he will survive and stay with the team for a fourth year.
