Commanders News: Brian Davis lawsuit, Dan Snyder, final visits and Sam Howell

Brian Davis isn’t planning to sue Commanders and NFL
With things progressing well between Dan Snyder, the ownership group led by Josh Harris, and the NFL over the sale, there’s one annoying presence trying to force a completely different shift in direction. The Washington Commanders are also being coveted by Brian Davis – a former basketball prospect at Duke University that reportedly has monumental financial sums to get his own deal over the line.
While these claims are being treated with extreme skepticism – especially considering his suspect business background – Davis isn’t going down without a fight. Something that could potentially lead to a lawsuit against the Commanders and the league if he’s ignored completely.
During an interview with The Sports Junkies on 106.7 The Fan, Davis stated there would be no lawsuit and that his intentions are legitimate. There were also some outlandish claims about where his money comes from and what he plans to do in terms of investment.
"“That’s ridiculous. The last thing I would want to do is hurt the team, hurt the league, or anyone else. What I’m trying to do is make a contribution. What I want them to do is accept the capital so we can do something bigger and together, something collaborative. And as I said, I’m trying to be connective tissue. I would never sue anyone. I never sued anyone in my life. I’ve been sued, but I never been sued anyone in my life. And what I’m trying to do is not get into anything negative.”"
Davis might believe he has a good shot, but there are far too many red flags for this to get through the NFL’s finance committee in any case. He’s also been caught out on a few statements, including visiting the facility and failing to repay a loan – which seems strange for someone who claims to be worth $50 billion.
