Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as all eyes turn to Las Vegas for this year's Super Bowl?

NFL fans worldwide will prepare food and chilling beverages throughout the day in readiness for tonight's long-awaited Super Bowl encounter between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers. Some former Washington Commanders coaches and players are searching for a ring in Las Vegas. However, the team couldn't be further away from reaching the promised land right now.

Whatever you're up to on this fine Super Bowl Sunday, enjoy it. Until then, the stories causing conversation include Trent Williams' plans, Kendall Fuller's future, Kliff Kingsbury's offense and how it could influence offseason acquisitions, and draft rumors surrounding the Chicago Bears' plans at No. 1 overall.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Trent Williams' plans

One of the biggest mistakes in recent Washington Commanders franchise history was trading left tackle Trent Williams. The situation was completely mismanaged by those in power. It broke the trust between players and ownership. The compensation received was nothing short of disgraceful when one considers the talent at his disposal.

As expected, Williams went on to become among the league's most dominant blindside protectors. He'll get another chance to add a Super Bowl ring to his ever-growing list of accolades versus the Kansas City Chiefs. Whether he wins it all or not, the three-time All-Pro doesn't plan on retiring based on comments via Sports Illustrated.

"I haven't thought about an end. I know I'm definitely in for the next couple of years, I'll revisit it after that."

There is a hint of regret when looking at the success Williams and countless other former players or coaches are having after leaving the Commanders. Hopefully, the new regime can establish a culture that wants people to stick around rather than jump ship at the first opportunity.
