Expectations were high heading into the first full offseason with the Washington Commanders under new ownership. Josh Harris and his wealthy benefactors spent their opening few months in charge assessing everything across the franchise and what more is needed to get things trending upward. It didn't take long for them to put their ambitious plans into action.

It's been one of the most dramatic offseasons in franchise history. Nobody expected the Commanders to stand pat after another woeful campaign, but the widespread alterations have been drastic and welcome in equal measure.

The Commanders seem to be in a much better place as a result. There is renewed hope across the organization as they look to emerge from obscurity and back into contention. This is a big market team with a rabid fanbase who've been starved of legitimate success for decades. It might take time, but Harris' group has made a tremendous start.

With this in mind, we took a look and ranked the 10 best moves from Washington's dramatic 2024 offseason. We took into consideration their potential impact in the short and long-term, filling specific needs, and how their respective arrivals can benefit the franchise en route to brighter days ahead moving forward.

Let's get to it.

10. Commanders hired Kliff Kingsbury

With the Washington Commanders moving in a completely different direction, there didn't seem much chance of Eric Bieniemy being around in 2024. He got a token interview for the head coaching vacancy once Ron Rivera was fired, but not many believed he had a legitimate shot at securing the job after an underwhelming first season with the franchise and how some players weren't too thrilled with his coaching methods.

The Commanders pulled off a coup by making Kliff Kingsbury their new offensive coordinator. It looked for a long time as if the respected coach would be heading for the Las Vegas Raiders before an interjection from Magic Johnson, who persuaded him to ignore overtures from the desert and join Washington's exciting project.

Things might not have ended well for Kingsbury with the Arizona Cardinals, but his accomplished work developing young quarterbacks and molding schemes to their strengths will be a significant addition for the Commanders in 2024.
