Report: NFL finance committee unofficially approves Commanders sale; vote expected Thursday

Jul 18, 2023

The sale of the Washington Commanders is nearly official.

The NFL finance committee met remotely Monday and unofficially approved Daniel Snyder’s $6.05 billion deal that will sell the Commanders to Josh Harris, according to The Washington Post. The NFL and Snyder also reportedly reached an agreement to resolve their legal issues.

Although there wasn’t an official vote taken during the finance committee meeting, a "straw poll" was conducted, and the sale was unanimously supported. NFL team owners are expected to vote to approve the sale during meetings Thursday in Minneapolis. At least 24 of the league’s 32 owners must approve the sale for it to pass.

Assuming that vote takes place, the sale will close as soon as Friday.
