Efought Washington commanders owner Dan Snyder experienced the most rocky years of his 23-year tenure running the historic NFL franchise.

What does this mean for Dan Snyder? Will he still sell the team?

The more than year-long official investigation into allegations of workplace misconduct and sexual harassment within the Washington franchise will come to an abrupt halt. In theory, to the delight of most Washington fans, that shouldn’t change Snyder’s plans to sell the team. If anything, it could increase the value of the Commanders in the likely sale, although the decision will ultimately be the current ownership’s.

Dan Snyder, a mega-donor to the Republican party, will be spared any legal issues the investigation has raised over the past year. The most damning was the most recent: alleged “to engage in a troubling, long-standing and potentially illegal pattern of financial behavior that has victimized thousands of team fans and the National Football League.” However, he could still face some smaller fights, like the one brought up last week by DC Attorney General Karl A. Racine.

In July 2021, the NFL announced the Washington commanders $10 million and Dan Snyder ceded day-to-day operations to his wife Tanya Snyder. It happened after an investigation unearthed a “toxic” workplace culture. But no written report was issued, resulting in the US House Oversight Committee to investigate and take us to where we are today.
