Nearly six months after a fellow NFL team owner publicly declared that he believed “there’s merit to remove” Dan Snyder from owning the Washington Commanders, Snyder is close to finding a different solution.
Snyder has reportedly reached a preliminary agreement to sell the Commanders to hedge fund manager Josh Harris for an NFL-record $6 billion, according to Sportico and NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.
The decision comes several weeks after the NFL’s annual league meeting in Phoenix, where team owners, executives and head coaches all convened. Had Snyder’s well-documented concerns not yet been resolved, team owners could have decided whether to vote on his removal. NFL bylaws stipulate three-fourths of club owners — 24 — must approve a forced sale.
It doesn't seem like force will be necessary.
