Washington interviewed only a few candidates for the job, including former Philadelphia Eagles vice president of football administration Jake Rosenberg, Garafolo added.

Sosna, 31, has been Detroit's senior director, football administration since joining the organization in 2022. He oversees "the strategic planning and management of the salary cap as the team's primary contract negotiator," according to his bio on the Lions' website.

Sosna joined the Lions after three years as USC football's chief of staff.

The post-draft hire is a continuation of Washington's offseason of change. Since the end of the 2023 season, the Commanders hired Adam Peters as their general manager and Dan Quinn as their new head coach and then drafted Jayden Daniels with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.
