Which Washington Commanders' news stories are hitting the headlines as we move ever closer to the sale approval and training camp?
Good morning and happy Friday everyone. The NFL offseason might be in its quietest period before some landmark events come onto the horizon, but that hasn't stopped the news, rumors, and speculation from enveloping the Washington Commanders ahead of their upcoming sale vote.
Among the stories up for conversation recently include Washington's skill position players ranked, Josh Harris projected to make immediate improvements, Ron Rivera's happiness with Eric Bieniemy's influence so far, and Khaleke Hudson tipped to surge up the depth chart heading into the campaign.
Let's delve into each topic in more detail.
Ron Rivera thrilled with Commanders' new offense
It wasn't an offseason full of big splashes for the Washington Commanders in free agency. But they did manage to land a big fish that could completely revolutionize the organization when Eric Bienemy agreed to come on board via the Kansas City Chiefs.
Bieniemy has wasted no time in making his presence felt. He demands nothing but excellence and is holding everyone to account - something that raises the stakes and is exactly what head coach Ron Rivera was hoping for based on his comments via the team's website.
"I really thought that there were a lot of things that we could do better, a lot of things we could do differently. We challenged them to adapt and to grow. And that's one of the things I'm really happy about more than anything else is just really how they changed, how they adapted, how they grew, how they learned."- Ron Rivera via Commanders.com
The Commanders have a ready-made defense that could be among the league's best. If their offense can make the progress expected under Bieniemy's expert guidance, a promising campaign might be in the offing.
