Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as the franchise reflects on another batch of organized team activities?

Another fascinating series of OTAs is in the books and the Washington Commanders players now have a few days away from the facility before returning next week. And all signs point to some genuine progress being made with raised coaching standards - especially where the offense is concerned.

As always, the news cycle never stops turning where the Commanders are concerned. Among the stories making a splash recently include Brian Davis bowing out, Eric Bieniemy on his relationship with Ron Rivera, Sam Howell's growth, and some big upcoming contract decisions.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Brian Davis drops Commanders sale lawsuit

First, it was $550 billion. Then it was $990,000. And now, Brian Davis has dropped his lawsuit against Bank of America regarding his supposed bid to buy the Washington Commanders entirely.

This does nothing to diminish the skepticism many had about Davis. His reported $7 billion offer was never taken seriously and not going through with his lawsuit proves that he never had the capital to pull off such a heist.

Everything is going according to plan regarding the $6.05 billion offer that was accepted by Dan Snyder. There are still some areas of slight concern for Josh Harris' group to figure out, but a formal vote of approval should take place at some stage during the summer.

As for Davis, he got his 15 minutes in the limelight. Even though there was plenty of ridicule attached.
