Which Washington Commanders' news stories are hitting the headlines with everyone now in the building for the start of training camp practices tomorrow?
Seeing players descend on Ashburn for the start of training camp this week only added to the level of anticipation heading into the 2023 campaign. Of course, this also comes without a dark cloud hanging over the Washington Commanders for the first time in more than two decades.
Football is (almost) back and we couldn't be happier. Before then, among the stories causing debate include Josh Harris' willingness to learn, Chase Young's outlook in 2023, Terry McLaurin's honor, and the Commanders' potential new stadium.
Let's delve into each topic in more detail.
Commanders WR Terry McLaurin's honor
After years of being classed as underrated, it's been great to see Terry McLaurin get some well-deserved recognition this offseason. The gifted wide receiver was listed as one of the best at the position by Madden when their annual ratings were announced and the NFL also gave him a confidence boost this week.
McLaurin came in at No. 94 on the NFL's top-100 list. While this is still a little low according to most Washington Commanders fans, it's a step in the right direction. And the wideout is confident his exceptional work ethic will continue to give the opposition countless problems based on his comments via the team's website.
"I'm already one of the top receivers in this league. I wouldn't say I'm No. 1 yet, but I'm definitely working to try to be the best. Seventeen's playing hard every play, and you gotta come ready to play, too, because he's gonna bring it."- Terry McLaurin va Commanders.com
If McLaurin made the top 100 given all the upheaval of late, imagine how much he'll surge when the Commanders finally get themselves a franchise quarterback.
