Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as those in power continue their swift hiring process heading into the offseason?

There seems to be a different turn every minute around the NFL currently. One headline generated more buzz than most on Thursday, but there was plenty to keep Washington Commanders fans interested as Josh Harris' brain trust continues to put their decisive plans into action.

More developments are expected in the coming days - perhaps with new hires attached. While we wait for more news, the stories causing debate include narrowing down the shortlist for Washington's head of football operations, quashing the rumors surrounding Bill Belichick, a potential reunion for Eric Bieniemy, and Sam Howell's appreciation heading into an uncertain offseason.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders narrow down the search

After interviewing numerous candidates for their head of football operations position, the Washington Commanders have narrowed down their search. According to multiple reports, Ian Cunningham and Adam Peters are the chosen duo. They will be brought in for second interviews shortly, which Magic Johnson and others will attend.

This quick action is raising a few eyebrows around the NFL. Many expected the Commanders to do things differently without Dan Snyder. Josh Harris' immediate actions represent a significant statement of intent.

Both Cunningham and Peters have spurned advances from elsewhere. This is the job they want. Something that's led to speculation about both potentially being appointed to the head of football operations and general manager positions if both are willing.

Exciting times ahead.
