It would be best for everybody if Dan Snyder is gone from the National Football League, preferably before the 2023 season begins.
According to a new report from Josh Kosman of the New York Post, National Football League owners don’t have enough votes to force Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder to sell the team.
“Owners of the NFL’s 32 teams were hoping to reach a resolution to the lengthy saga by their annual meeting, which will be held March 26 in Phoenix,” Kosman wrote.
“However, a source close to one NFL owner told The Post that the team bigwigs can’t reach the 75% threshold needed to force a sale by Snyder.”
Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio added that as Snyder is “possibly trying to run out the clock, there’s a chance the clock isn’t even ticking.”
For the NFL to remove Snyder as owner, they’d need 24 votes.
Just this week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that DC billionaire Mitchell Rales had joined Josh Harris’ bid for the Commanders. Snyder has also reportedly told some owners that Washington’s sale was “looking good” and that other owners would be happy with the sale price via The Washington Post.
Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta is also in the mix. He has owned Houston’s NBA franchise for more than five years, having purchased the team for $2.2 billion in September 2017. He submitted a bid for Washington’s NFL team for approximately $5.5 billion, according to The Post.
Snyder reportedly wants $6 billion for the Commanders.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
