Which Washington Commanders' news stories are hitting the headlines as the offseason lull between OTAs and training camp continues?

We are now in the midst of what is often a pretty dull period of the NFL calendar year. But for the Washington Commanders, there are many things up in the air that continues to bring plenty of news and rumors to keep fans entertained.

Among the stories making headlines recently include Logan Thomas' pivotal role, Sam Howell taking charge, the prospect of bidding on Milton Wright, and Mason Brooks leaving a good early impression.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders could bid on supplemental draft WR

With the NFL holding a supplemental draft this year - which takes place on July 11 - it gives the chance for players not eligible for the 2023 NFL Draft to potentially get an opportunity at the next level. Just one prospect is eligible and any teams interested must place their bids before the highest gets accepted.

Milton Wright is a talented, physically imposing wide receiver out of Purdue who missed the 2022 campaign after being deemed academically ineligible. However, his 57 receptions for 732 receiving yards and seven touchdowns from 10 games during the 2021 campaign indicate there might be some interest.

The Washington Commanders have more than enough depth at the wide receiver position, so any interest in Wright seems unlikely. Much will depend on what Eric Bieniemy thinks, and no team can ever have enough quality individuals from a pass-catching perspective.
