The Washington Commanders are a week away from an official new owner — but fans excited to see Dan Snyder on his way out may be worried in the wake of recent reports.
As NFL governors meet on July 20 to vote on the team’s $6.05 billion sale to the group led by Josh Harris, the Washington Post wrote that issues in legal negotiations “threaten to complicate the approval and closing” of the deal.
That report follows ESPN’s story unveiling new details of how the leaked emails that led to Jon Gruden’s firing from the Las Vegas Raiders contributed to Synder’s downfall.
Despite the rumblings, two sources with knowledge of the situation told Front Office Sports that any issues are expected to be resolved ahead of next Thursday’s vote. An NFL spokesperson declined comment.
It’s been widely expected that when the sale goes to an official vote, Harris will have no problem surpassing the 24-vote threshold needed for approval.
The Commanders sale process has seen its fair share of twists and turns — but by this time next week, everything should be history, and the Commanders can move forward under Harris.
