Selling the Washington Commanders will be interesting. One of the main prospects is Amazon co-founder and owner Jeff Bezos, who is consistently viewed as a potential buyer.
Bezos could be warming to an offer. According to a New York Post report, he may be trying to sell the Washington Post to raise enough money to buy the Commanders.
The Washington Post came under fire last month after a publisher disclosed layoff plans in a leaked video. The Journal has published countless stories about what has transpired in the Commanders’ organization under Dan Snyder’s ownership over the past decade.
It’s also unlikely that Snyder would make it any easier for Bezos, given the many publications against the current Commanders owner since the Amazon co-founder bought the Washington Post in 2013 for $250 million. However, reports state that Bank of America is courting Bezos to make an offer, though the current owner isn’t a big fan of the Amazon owner.
A statement from the Washington Post has denied rumors of the publication’s sale. Since Bezos has a net worth of $100 billion, that’s far from an issue if he decides to make a bid for an NFL team.
Why is Dan Snyder selling the Commanders?
NFL owners are unhappy with Snyder for embarrassing the league with his antics. They do not urge his departure out of greed or pettiness. They want Snyder out because he was a really bad owner.
The expected value for Washington’s sale is between $5 billion and $6 billion. The sale should surpass the recent Denver Broncos takeover, as the Walton-Penner Ownership Family Group spent $4.65 billion to become the new owners.
Dan Snyder hired bankers to start the sale process. He has been in the franchise for over two decades, but on-field success has been scant. The franchise has won three Super Bowls. Neither of them came during Snyder’s tenure. Because of this, fans are so happy that the owner is finally changing hands.
With a team placed in the US capital, there will be no shortage of interest. They’re in one of the biggest markets in the league and one of the most storied franchises.
