Confidence increasing for Commanders sale approval

There are obviously some elements of the $6.05 billion deal to buy the Washington Commanders that desire further scrutiny from the NFL's finance committee. But it would be a shock if Josh Harris didn't have all the answers during their upcoming meeting this week.

If all goes well, reports suggest a formal vote of approval to end this drawn-out saga once and for all could arrive in the coming weeks. According to Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post, the NFL could look to arrange the vote as soon as possible. Perhaps even late this month or early July depending on what transpires during Haris' pivotal meeting.

"If all goes well in Josh Harris's meeting w/ the finance committee Wed., the deal would be put to a vote of owners ASAP, potentially as soon as late June or early July, a person with knowledge of the league's workings & owners' views said."

Confidence is increasing regarding the sale documentation and structure. A source claimed that the process was "90 percent complete" and A.J. Perez of Front Office Sports has been quick to point out the combined net worth of Harris' ownership group as another source for optimism in terms of the reported $1 billion being borrowed.

Fans have been waiting on a successful resolution to this deal for a long time. After speculation, drama, and everything in between, their wishes will soon be granted unless something drastic occurs.
