NFL owners will not vote on the pending $6.05 billion sale of the Washington Commanders from longtime owners Dan and Tanya Snyder to a group led by billionaire sports mogul Josh Harris at a scheduled spring meeting next week.
According to multiple reports, Jeff Miller, the league’s executive vice president of communications, said on a conference call Thursday there will be an “update for membership” on the sale agreement at the meeting in Minneapolis, but no vote will take place on Sunday or Monday.
“League staff and the finance committee will continue to review the details of the transaction, as they would in the normal course,” Miller said, according to reports.
The sale agreement was formally announced a week ago and next week’s scheduled owners meeting had been targeted as a date to finalize the sale ever since news of an agreement in principle was reported in April. The deal must be approved by three-quarters of the league’s 32 owners and meet other closing conditions to be finalized.
