It appears as though Dan Snyder could come to a “compromise” to not own the Washington Commanders anymore.
According to Michael Smith, he thinks that there’s a possibility that Snyder could pass the ownership of the franchise onto his children.
There were talks of a potential vote, but NFL owners do not plan to do that the future of Commanders co-owner Dan Snyder at next week’s league meeting, per The Athletic.
This news comes on the heels of an ESPN story published Thursday saying Snyder recently told a close associate he has enough information to “blow up” several NFL owners, the league office and commissioner Roger Goodell.
The report said Snyder has used private investigators to look into several NFL team owners and Goodell. These were the same tactics he allegedly used within his own franchise to scare employees seeking accountability for workplace misconduct and sexual harassment allegations levied against the owner and his team.
As it stands now, 24 of the NFL’s 32 team owners would need to vote to remove Snyder as the Commanders’ owner.
“They can’t f— with me,” Snyder has said privately, per the ESPN report.
During Thursday Night Football, Amazon broadcaster Al Michaels took time to talk about the Washington Commanders’ team owner Daniel Snyder.
“Just my feeling, I think what the league would love is for Snyder to sell the team. Not having to go for a vote but just sell the team because it’s become a major problem around the league, obviously. And we’ll see what happens. I think it’s got a long way to go, and Dan (is) very well known for digging his heels into the ground.”
Snyder’s lawyers, John Brownlee and Stuart Nash, partners at Holland & Knight, and a Commanders spokesperson said everything in the ESPN report was false.
“This is categorically false,” Brownlee and Nash said of the dossier claims to ESPN. “He has no ‘dossiers’ compiled on any owners.”
