Which Washington Commanders players stand to benefit most from Eric Bieniemy agreeing to become the team’s new offensive coordinator?

It’s been a long time coming, but the Washington Commanders have their new offensive coordinator. And boy, it is a big one.

The team confirmed on Friday that after lengthy discussions, Eric Bieniemy is their guy. His decision to leave the Kansas City Chiefs for a sideways move has been questioned by some, but stepping out of Andy Reid’s shadow and running his own offense is the only way he’ll become a future NFL head coach.

Bieniemy’s been overlooked for too long. This might only be a short-term arrangement if everything goes well, but it’s one that Washington can thrive from in 2023.

With this in mind, here are four Commanders players who’ll benefit most from Bieniemy’s presence next season.

Curtis Samuel – Commanders WR

Eric Bieniemy should bring some extra spice to an offense that was all too predictable at times last season under Scott Turner. Simply put, this is tremendous news for Curtis Samuel heading into a contract year.

Samuel has the explosiveness and ability to create yards after the catch that’s going to make him a primary weapon in Bieniemy’s scheme. If the player stays injury-free, then the Washington Commanders are going to grow exponentially as a result.
