There have been reports over the past several months that Daniel Snyder was looking to sell the Washington Commanders after owning them for more than 20 years.

His time in charge of the franchise has been marred by a lot of inept play, not to mention scandals and controversies off the field.

A group led by billionaire Josh Harris, a private equity investor, has been positioned to buy the Commanders, but the process is slow.

Ultimately, the NFL is expected to resolve its legal issues with Snyder and allow the sale, according to Mark Muskie via Front Office Sports.

A “straw poll” was recently conducted among NFL owners, and they reportedly showed unanimous support for the sale.

Harris is already a majority owner of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and the NHL’s New Jersey Devils.

Assuming the sale goes through, it will mark the beginning of a new era for the Commanders and give them a clear path forward.

Snyder bought the team in 1999, shortly after the death of its previous owner, Jack Kent Cooke, and during that time, they have made the playoffs only six times and won only two postseason games.

In the 1980s and early 1990s, the franchise was very successful, winning three Super Bowl titles while rarely finishing below .500.

Recently, there have been multiple allegations that under Snyder, commanders’ staff have faced bullying, intimidation and even sexual harassment.
