Reports: Commanders to sign DE Dorance Armstrong, C Tyler Biadasz


Center Tyler Biadasz and defensive end Dorance Armstrong agreed to join the Washington Commanders, following new head coach Dan Quinn from Dallas, according to reports.

Biadasz, 26, started 53 games in four seasons with the Cowboys since entering the NFL in 2020 as a fourth-round pick out of Wisconsin.

Armstrong, 26, had a breakout season in 2023, finishing second to Micah Parsons with 7.5 sacks in the regular season, with Quinn running the Cowboys’ defense.

Armstrong has 23.5 sacks and 14 starts in 93 career games.

The Cowboys are expecting to shuffle their offensive line with left tackle Tyron Smith and Biadasz hitting free agency.

A fourth-round draft pick in 2018 out of Kansas, Armstrong had 21 sacks in the past three seasons.

Rejoining Quinn as part of a rebuilt defense in Washington gives Armstrong a chance to help the Commanders move on from losing former first-round draft picks Montez Sweat and Chase Young, who were traded during the 2023 season.
