Rumors continue to spread regarding the eventual sale of the Washington Commanders.

As of right now, there is one bid standing as the best potential offer. However, Dan Snyder might be waiting for someone else to make a larger bid.

According to Front Office Sports, the Commanders’ current owner is reportedly seeking an offer that is more than $6 billion. As of right now, nobody is fulfilling that request.

The Josh Harris Group currently has the best offer on the table. Front Office Sports claims the group which includes Magic Johnson and Mitchell Rales, “entered a bid between $5.5 billion and $6 billion.”

New reports suggest Dan Snyder wants an offer that goes north of $6 billion. Some speculate Jeff Bezos could step in last minute and make a bid for the Commanders.

However, all has been quiet regarding Bezos, per Front Office Sports.

“Meanwhile, Snyder is hoping there’s enough curb appeal for another bidder to enter the picture — and he may need Amazon founder Jeff Bezos to make that a reality. Bezos hired a banking firm, but has not entered the bidding process.”

You’d think being offered anywhere between $5.5 to $6 billion would be a smash accept.

But here we are, with the Commanders still up for sale.

With that said, a potential purchase should be made soon, as the current highest offer may just be the best one Dan Snyder receives.
