Washington to Hire a Lawyer for Internal Review; Minority Owners Looking to Get Out

Chicago Bears

I don’t feel comfortable participating in the rumor-mongering on social media regarding news centering on Washington’s NFL franchise.

But I can’t completely ignore it. Especially since the team is making headlines for finally agreeing to change its nickname. Something big appears to be in the works, but what it is remains to be learned publicly.

Whatever it is, it has the team’s minority owners actively seeking to get out:

And then there’s this:

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports the organization hired an attorney to “review the organization’s protocols.”

This includes a “deep dive” into the franchise’s past culture. Additionally, Schefter references a Washington Post story that isin the works. Presumably, it will shed light on culture issues within the organization. If this is all connected, then the Washington Post story that’s on deck will be a whopper.

In the end, what we know is that serious things are happening in Washington’s organization. So much so, the team hired a lawyer from the outside to look at what’s happening within. And by doing that, the franchise is likely looking to get a handle on damage control early while it can. In the meantime, we will keep an eye out for news once it breaks.
