Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as the final twist in the sale saga officially looms large?

Washington Commanders fans worldwide received some welcome news heading into the weekend. Something that will finally spell the end of Dan Snyder's association with the franchise once and for all.

Among the stories generating debate recently include Washington's sale approval date set for next month, Ron Rivera on Eric Bieniemy's head coaching chances, Kareem Hunt staying ready, and Dyami Brown pushing for a more prominent role in 2023.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders throw support behind Eric Bieniemy

There's been unfair skepticism about Eric Bieniemy's chances of succeeding as an NFL head coach. Despite contributing significantly to Patrick Mahomes' development and the Kansas City Chiefs becoming a mini-dynasty, there was something preventing other teams from giving him the top job.

Moving out of Andy Reid's shadow and running an offense should be the final hurdle Bieniemy must overcome in pursuit of a well-deserved promotion. But Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera made clear in no uncertain terms his feelings on the matter via The Bleacher Report.

"I will be very blunt about this. There's no reason [Bieniemy] shouldn't be a head coach in the NFL."

Rivera is tasking Bieniemy with many different responsibilities in keeping with what head coaches are given daily. This is preparing him for the next step and is a challenge the play-caller has relished so far.

If everything clicks into place as the summer goes on heading into the regular season, then the relationship between Rivera, Bieniemy, and their players should blossom. And that's a win-win for everybody.
