NFL owners reportedly don’t have numbers required to vote Daniel Snyder out

While Daniel Snyder has hired a firm to help find a buyer for the Washington Commanders in what’s seemingly been a slow-moving process, some other owners of NFL teams have expressed an interest in finding a way to force his hand sooner than expected. This entire situation has been kickstarted after Snyder faced allegations of sexual misconduct.

Despite Snyder’s recent attempt to sell the team, previous reports have suggested owners could attempt to remove Snyder from his post with the Commanders, which would require a majority of at least 24 votes from other NFL owners.

Yet, as Josh Kosman of the New York Post indicated on Friday, there isn’t enough current momentum to force Snyder to sell now as opposed to later while he waits for a proper offer. NFL owners are expected to gather for their annual meeting on March 26 in Phoenix, with some hoping for a resolution to the Commanders’ eventual sale by that date.

Snyder has been firm in asking for at least $6 billion to part with the Commanders, which would be a new record for the sale of an NFL franchise. This would surge past the current mark held by the Walton group, who purchased the Denver Broncos for $4.65 billion in August of 2021.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos continues to be in the running to land the Commanders, despite Snyder’s apparent attempts to freeze the billionaire out of the bidding process. Yet Snyder has also recently indicated he has “multiple bidders” that the NFL will “love.” Whether those candidates include Bezos or not remains to be seen. For now, it doesn’t sound like owners are itching to remove Snyder any time soon, even if some privately wish otherwise.
