This is proving to be a turbulent offseason for the NFL.
But no one saw this coming.
And a sexual harassment investigation may force this NFL owner to sell his team.
Daniel Snyder owns the Washington Redskins and has been a lightning rod for years.
Snyder drew the ire of the liberal media for holding the line for years on refusing to change the team name until finally caving after George Floyd’s death.
Last year, several cheerleaders stepped forward with allegations of sexual harassment against top team officials.
Snyder claimed his minority partners seized on the scandal to try and force him to sell.
The NFL tapped former Attorney General Loretta Lynch to lead an investigation into the allegations and 106.7FM in Washington, D.C. says it has obtained a copy of the report and the top recommendation is that the NFL force Snyder to sell the team.
The @JunksRadio have obtained information from the 130+ page of the NFL investigation into the Washington Football Team – the top recommendation is "force the owner to divest his ownership of the team" per @EBJunkies.
Wow. This is major.

The NFL later denied this story.
“An NFL spokesman tells me the reported 130-page investigative document on the Washington Football Team is ‘absolutely false’ and that the league has ‘received no such report,’” CBS Sports Jonathan Jones reports.
Snyder has been one of the most controversial owners in NFL history.
The Redskins were once a crown jewel NFL franchise winning three Super Bowls between 1983 and 1992.
But since Snyder bought the team, the franchise has been defined by chaos in management and lackluster results on the field.
The Redskins are one of the most valuable sports franchises in the world and there is a strong incentive to force Snyder to sell so everyone can cash out.
