Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as we reach the two-week mark before the franchise sale becomes official?

Good morning Washington Commanders fans and a happy Tuesday to you all. Just a normal day in the quiet portion of the offseason, but that will not be the case a fortnight from now when the team's $6.05 billion sale gets put to a vote by other NFL owners and is expected to be approved.

That's right, just two weeks left with Dan Snyder's stain clouding the Commanders. Until then, the stories causing debate recently include Daron Payne's ambition, Jahan Dotson's emergence into a foundational piece, Josh Harris mixing with the stars, and Chase Roullier announcing his shock retirement.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

New Commanders owner mixing with the stars

The bar isn't exactly high after Dan Snyder's turbulent spell as Washington Commanders owner that spanned 25 years. But Josh Harris already looks like a more likable person that's highly respected in the business and sports world.

Harris was recently spotted at the lavish White Party to celebrate Michael Rubin's 50th birthday party. The billionaire was photographed in discussion with James Harden, which is significant given he's also the Philadelphia 76ers' owner and the perennial All-Star is reportedly looking for a trade after exercising his player option.

Rubin was recently complimentary about Harris and his potential to take the Commanders to new heights. The Fanatics CEO was a stakeholder in the 76ers and has worked closely with the pending Washington owner, so he knows better than most how this group can put the right plan in place to take the franchise forward.

Harris' presence at the party probably means more to Philly basketball fans than Washington's long-suffering football supporters. However, it does prove he's well-connected and far more popular than the outgoing Snyder.
