Which Washington Commanders news stories are making the headlines as the ongoing sale distraction looks set to soon become a thing of the past?

As the Washington Commanders reflect on another interesting series of OTAs, attention is turning to a pivotal meeting between Josh Harris and the NFL's finance committee. Something that could be the biggest remaining stumbling block before the franchise's $6.05 billion sale gets sent to other league owners for approval.

This is an exciting time with plenty of news along the way. Among the stories taking up column inches recently include Jahan Dotson's praise for cornerback Emmanuel Forbes, Chase Young working out with a future Pro Football Hall of Famer, confidence increases regarding the sale, and Antonio Gibson heading into the season confidently.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders WR lauds Emmanuel Forbes

It's clear that Emmanuel Forbes has left his mark over early off-season workouts. Big things are expected of the No. 16 overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft, but he's wasted no time in establishing himself as a potentially key contributor right out of the gate.

When asked about Forbes at his football camp on Saturday, wide receiver Jahan Dotson stated via Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post that he's been impressed by what he's seen from the Mississippi State product to date.

"Honestly, I watched the tape and I was like, ‘I think he’s good, but I don’t know.’ After seeing him on the field, I know how good he is now. I understand why he was drafted in the first round. I understand what all the hype is about."

Dotson and Forbes will be making each other better throughout the summer. Hopefully, this can pay off positively when it's time to take the field in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals.
