According to Forbes, Snyder already received at least four calls from people interested in buying the team.
A Commanders spokesperson told the Associated Press, “We are exploring all options.”
Either way, the NFL says the sales process won’t begin until March at the earliest.
Since then, we might see a lot of tycoons negotiating for the own.
