Ron Rivera remains certain in the face of so much Commanders uncertainty

“There will be a discussion about what happened over the last three years,” said Rivera, who signed a five-year contract in 2020. “I’ll be honest. I’ll be upfront. Tell the truth. I’ll talk about the vision … and what I think will happen. … The owner has got to be able to believe in what I’m talking about. Hopefully, I can do that. And if not, I’ll be gone in a year.”

2023 NFL draft: Latest buzz, rumors, news, questions for all 32 teams

What we’re hearing about the Commanders’ draft: The Commanders have studied the top offensive linemen in the class. Offensive tackle is a possibility in Round 1. Dawand Jones (Ohio State) is a name I keep hearing in connection with the team, which has done a lot of work on his evaluation. While the middle of Round 1 might seem high for Jones right now, don’t be surprised if he lands in that range. Cornerback is another area the Commanders could address, potentially on Day 2. I’ve heard they are high on Kelee Ringo (Georgia). Coming into the 2022 season, Ringo was viewed as a potential first-round pick, but he’s likely to fall to Round 2 now. He would fit well in Washington’s zone-heavy scheme, playing on the other side of Benjamin St-Juste. — Jordan Reid

Brian Davis Submits Unusual Bid For Washington Commanders, Raising Questions

Laettner and Davis have been under civil investigation several times in connection with their business ventures. In 2006, both Laettner and Davis attempted to buy the Memphis Grizzlies for $252 million, securing loans from a number of investors, including Scottie Pippen.
