The Washington Commanders are officially under new ownership, with every owner in the league voting to approve the sale of the team from Daniel Snyder to Josh Harris and his ownership group on Thursday.
With Harris and his group now in place to lead this struggling franchise, the team and organization need to undergo some considerable changes in order to wipe away the stains left by Snyder, who couldn’t have done a worse job as team owner during the past two decades.
Unfortunately for the Commanders, training camps are getting underway in the NFL, and drastic changes are hard to make once the ball starts rolling in the league, with teams trying to shape their rosters ahead of the next season.
Despite that fact, Harris recently said the following about his plans for the franchise moving forward and how he’s committed to winning championships in the nation’s capital, via Sherree Burruss of NFL Network.
Harris: “This franchise is apart of who I am, my DNA. I appreciate it’s not just about being a fan. I feel a tremendous sense of responsibly to win championships, a positive impact in the community and memories for future fans.” pic.twitter.com/mxQKVj2jZ5

With Snyder more or less running the struggling franchise into the ground over the past two decades, Harris and company will have a lot of work to do in order to repair the damage that has been done while creating a new culture for the Commanders moving forward.
That said, the team could undergo some significant changes over the next few years as the new ownership group tries to right the ship, but only time will tell if those changes will result in more wins and a franchise that can get back to its winning ways.NEXT: Analyst Outlines How Commanders Should Start Rebuilding
