The Washington Commanders will look the same on the field for the 2023 season.
But it is in the owners’ box where the most significant change has been made.
Dan Snyder has officially sold the Commanders to an ownership group led by Josh Harris.
This is the beginning of a new era in Washington.
The Commanders Twitter account released a hype video for the new era.

The Commanders have turned into a punchline in the NFL.
Many football fans see their team as underachieving and poorly run.
Hopefully, that will no longer be the case with Snyder out the door.
A new owner is just the first of many changes that need to be made.
The team needs a new stadium and training facilities as well.
Not to mention their roster could benefit from being reshaped.
But at least today is a day to celebrate for many Commanders fans.
Washington has not had a winning season since 2016.
One of the many reasons for their struggles was the lack of solid quarterback play.
They have been scrambling to find a franchise quarterback and it has simply not happened.
It appears as if Sam Howell will be the starting quarterback for the Commanders in 2023.
He was a fifth-round pick in the 2022 draft and started only one game in his rookie year.
Yet, the Commanders must feel good about the improvements he made this offseason to give him the starting role.
Washington football is in a better place than they were last week.
That is mostly due to the much-needed ownership change being made official.NEXT: Magic Johnson Makes Strong Statement On Change Of Culture For Commanders
