Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines with just one day remaining until the franchise sale receives approval from NFL owners?
There is a palpable level of excitement across everyone associated with the Washington Commanders this week. Players are set to begin showing up for training camp over the weekend, but all eyes are on tomorrow's meeting between other NFL owners to finally approve the franchise's $6.05 billion sale to the Josh Harris group after months of back and forth.
Until then, among the stories causing conversation recently include Eric Bieniemy's standing, Josh Harris' first public appearance as Commanders owner, Chase Young's desire, and Dan Snyder's final demand before walking away for good.
Let's delve into each topic in more detail.
Josh Harris group set to attend Commanders rally
It appears as if Josh Harris and his wealthy investors are wasting no time in making their presence felt across the Washington Commanders once everything becomes official on July 20. According to Darren M. Haynes from WUSA9, the group will be in attendance for a specially-organized pep rally by the organization on Friday.
The event, which is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m., is the first major event in the immediate aftermath of Dan Snyder's departure. The timing is interesting and represents a major statement of intent from Harris as he looks to get fans back onside quickly after most turned the other way during the previous owner's reign of misery.
Defensive tackle Jonathan Allen is also set to appear at the rally, which is invite-only at FedEx Field. Anyone fortunate enough to receive their invitation would be wise not to miss it.
