At a glance

  • The NFL’s Washington Commanders could soon be for sale after owners Dan and Tanya Snyder said they have hired Bank of America Securities to “consider potential transactions.”
  • The team announced Wednesday’s surprising decision to enlist the investment bank’s services. Asked if the Snyders were considering selling part or all of the team, a spokesperson said, “We are exploring all options.”
  • That could mean a complete sale amid mounting pressure and multiple ongoing investigations — Snyder has said many times he would never sell the team — or bringing on new investors more than 18 months after the Snyders bought out the previous minority owners.
