NFL Owners Agenda Reportedly Doesn’t Include Commanders

  • Team owners to meet in Arizona and review Goodell’s contract extension.
  • A series of rules proposals are scheduled for debate during the gathering.
NFL owners meeting.
Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The focus of this year’s NFL owners’ meetings in Phoenix will be on something off the official agenda.

Some have theorized that Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder could announce a winning bidder for the franchise at the meetings. But Snyder — at least for now — is on his own timetable selecting a bidder for what is expected to be at least a controlling stake in the team. 

The three known frontrunners have remained the same for weeks: Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils owner Josh Harris, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, and Houston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta. 

One reason topics related to Snyder and the Commanders aren’t on the agenda is that Mary Jo White, the former head of the SEC, hasn’t released the results of her investigation. 

Minus the final report of the outside NFL probe that has spanned more than a year, league officials are reluctant to hold any official discussions about Snyder and the team’s future. 

What’s On The Agenda

On Tuesday, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract extension will be presented to all the NFL owners for a vote. ESPN reported that the deal is expected to run for three more years. 

Owners will also be asked to approve flex scheduling for Amazon’s “Thursday Night Football,” according to Sports Business Journal. If approved, all three weekly prime-time games will have some form of flex scheduling to bump up Sunday afternoon games later in the season.
