Josh Harris' big date ahead of Commanders purchase

It's been relatively quiet regarding the Washington Commanders sale over the last week. But that all changed on Friday evening when the Washington Post confirmed that Josh Harris will meet with the NFL's finance committee next week.

This is a landmark date and something that could speed up the process before everything gets formally approved. The committee still has some concerns about the financial structure and the amount being borrowed, but the report suggested that Harris was willing to make the adjustments needed to ensure something gets confirmed sooner rather than later.

According to A.J. Perez of Front Office Sports, any alterations to the documentation are likely to be moderate. The reporter added that Harris' group consists of 20 partners, which is below the maximum of 24 permitted by the league.

Every Commanders fan will be hoping this meeting goes off without a hitch and there are positive outcomes that emerge. Something that could potentially lead to a formal vote among other NFL owners in July or August.

Dan Snyder has already removed himself from the equation and is putting his properties in the D.C. area on the market. Once the documentation is approved, it will end one of the most turbulent and unsuccessful ownership reigns in history across any franchise in the United States.

Hopefully, the Harris group can have better luck. And they have some grand plans ready to go in pursuit of getting the Commanders back among the NFL's industry leaders.
