Which Washington Commanders could be one and done with the team during the upcoming 2023 campaign for very differing reasons?
It's been a relatively underwhelming off-season period in terms of recruitment for the Washington Commanders. Ron Rivera and his staff were working with the added hindrance of the ownership flux, which made making big splashes difficult and restricted the ability to provide contract extensions to the likes of defensive end Montez Sweat and talented safety Kamren Curl.
Just what the means for the Commanders' hopes of making a postseason return next season remains to be seen. Some problem areas have been strengthened and an obvious upgrade to Washington's coaching staff also took place, but there is no margin for underachievement with the Josh Harris group set to take over from Dan Snyder once their $6.05 billion purchase gets official approval from other NFL owners.
For some who joined the Commanders this spring, it could potentially be the start of a long-term, profitable relationship. But for others, their time with the franchise will be short-lived for one reason or another.
With this in mind, here are four Commanders who could be one and done with the franchise in 2023.
Tavita Pritchard - Commanders QB coach
When Eric Bieniemy was hired as the team's new assistant head coach/offensive coordinator, the Washington Commanders gave him full control to mold the staff on offense as he saw fit. One of the biggest alterations was hiring Tavita Pritchard as quarterbacks coach, which comes with intrigue despite lacking true NFL coaching experience.
Pritchard is well respected and is renowned for bringing the best out of his players. And anyone hand-picked by Bieniemy deserves the utmost respect from those within the locker room.
How long Pritchard stays around is dependent on how Sam Howell performs and whether the Commanders can put enough wins on the board to avoid landmark changes with new ownership entering the fray.
