Dan Snyder’s time as the owner of the Washington Commanders appears to finally be coming to an end.
There have been reports for months about the team potentially being sold, but there has yet to be a confirmation of an actual buyer.
Despite that, it appears a sale is getting close and the Snyders have been taking steps to prepare for that eventuality.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, the Snyders have cleared out of the Commanders facility and a sale for he franchise is believed to be imminent.

Per multiple sources, Dan and Tanya Snyder have cleared out of the team’s facility in advance of the sale of the team. As one source explained it, they left in late December.
We’re also told that, within the building, the word being used regarding a potential sale is “imminent.” Multiple sources said that a sale could be approved and announced as soon as the upcoming league meetings in Arizona.
There have been some big names linked to the sale of the Commanders, with Jeff Bezos being the most prominent name on the list, but there have been reports that he may not have been allowed to big on the franchise.
Whoever it is that ends up buying the Commanders, they are going to pay a hefty price to become an NFL owner.
The last franchise that was sold in the league was the Denver Broncos, who fetched a price of $4.65 billion. There have been reports that Snyder is looking for $6 billion to sell the Commanders.
Whoever the team is sold to and whatever it is sold for, the NFL will likely just be happy to be able to move on from the issues that have surrounded the Commanders in recent years.
