Which Washington Commanders' news stories are hitting the headlines with just nine Sundays remaining until their Week 1 opener in 2023?

Good morning Washington Commanders fans. We are now just nine Sundays away from the team taking to FedEx Field for their Week 1 opener against the Arizona Cardinals, which should be an electric atmosphere and a celebration under new ownership.

Until then, the news and rumors keep coming. Among the stories creating column inches recently include Sam Howell's value, Eric Bieniemy's biggest impact area so far, Chris Paul's brotherly love and mentorship praised, and the Commanders urged to tank for Caleb Williams.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders OL Chris Paul praised

Chris Paul has been turning heads within the Washington Commanders after displaying progress throughout early offseason workouts. Something that head coach Ron Rivera stated could see him push Saahdiq Charles for the starting left guard position throughout their upcoming training camp in Ashburn.

This would be a hugely positive development for the former seventh-round selection. Paul was seldom seen as a rookie despite the complications across Washington's protection, which led many to question what sort of future he'd have long-term.

Hopes remain high for Paul. However, his brother and 2024 NFL Draft prospect Patrick Paul could be even better.

Patrick is an outstanding left tackle prospect out of Houston that could become a first-round selection with another impressive campaign under his belt in 2023. Instead of competing with his sibling, the 6-foot-7 specimen said via Aaron Wilson of Click2Houston that he's leaning heavily on his brother for advice at a pivotal stage of his football journey.

"It’s definitely great because he’s been there and done that. He’s someone I can ask about the process. It hits home. I’m very proud of him. It’s motivation for me. Now, I have to prove myself and hopefully get there with him. He’s leading the way. When it’s my turn, I know what to do."

Hopefully, the brother duo will carve out successful professional careers for themselves. And who knows, they might end up together in Washington when it's all said and done.
