Dan Snyder, Commanders sale not 'formally' on agenda for NFL annual meeting (report)


The sale of the Washington Commanders is the talk of the town and many league circles, but is not on the agenda for next week's NFL annual meeting, according to a new report.

According to Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic, the Commanders and owner Daniel Snyder are not "formally on the agenda" during the league's four-day meetings in Arizona, which begin on Monday, March 26.

The Athletic report – citing a person who has received the agenda – a vote or owner briefing isn't scheduled for the meetings.

The league's meetings come in the wake of numerous reports about the sale being "imminent" and new reports of a new prospective bidder touring the team's Ashburn facility.

ESPN reported this week that Canadian billionaire Steve Apostolopoulos toured the team facility, becoming the latest named bidder to take that step.

Multiple reports also have said Magic Johnson has joined the group being put together by Philadelphia 76ers and New Jersey Devils owner Josh Harris and also includes Mitchell Rales.

Kaplan noted that while many believed the annual meeting was a time when a sale would be announced that has been "an aggressive timeline" and he points to the May meetings in Minneapolis.
