According to a new Washington Post report, "multiple" unnamed owners said they think Snyder, who has not been involved in the Commanders' day-to-day operations since July 2021, could ultimately be pushed out of the league.

Snyder's ouster could come to pass either by convincing him to sell his team or possibly even by voting to remove him, according to The Post's Mark Maske, Nicki Jhabvala and Liz Clarke.

One owner told the outlet that Snyder "needs to sell."

The report said that recent pressure campaign on Phoenix Suns and Mercury owner Robert Sarver has helped to change the NFL owners' feelings about the Snyder situation.

Sarver, who purchased the Suns in 2004, was suspended for one year and fined $10 million for allegedly using racial slurs and making inappropriate sexual comments to his underlings.

Snyder, 57, stepped back from the public eye last year -- with his wife, Tonya, assuming a great role -- in the wake of a series of damning reports about supposed rampant sexism within the Commanders organization. A supposedly independent, NFL-initiated investigation released in February found that Snyder had fostered a toxic workplace culture.

Like Sarver, Snyder was fined $10 million, but the NFL declined to release its investigation, claiming it would compromise those who testified anonymously about their experiences working in the organization. Snyder later testified before the US House Oversight Committee in July, the details of which were also not released publicly.

While Snyder remains largely unpopular with the Commanders fanbase, his situation isn't exactly analogous to Sarver's. Snyder is the sole owner of his franchise and has continued to find deals with new team sponsors, while Sarver was called on to resign by at least one part-owner and as well as one prominent sponsor in PayPal.
