Washington Commanders is getting closer to a new beginning and possibly a fresh start.

Dan Snyder who has owned this team since 1999 has been trying to sell it. He is now looking to sell it to a group that includes Josh Harris who is a multi-billionaire investor.

Commanders insider Nicki Jhabvala reported that Harris and Mitchell Rales went to the NFL’s league office in New York City to meet with the league’s finance committee.

Harris’ group is large and includes NBA Hall of Famer Magic Johnson, who already owns a stake in Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers.

Harris himself already is a member of groups that own the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and the New Jersey Devils of the National Hockey League.

Rob Walton, Walmart’s heir, purchased the Denver Broncos.

Sam Howell, the Commanders’ quarterback, will be taking over the offensive reins from Ron Rivera.

Howell, who was a rookie last season, started just one game, and he’s hardly a prime candidate to someday get named to the Pro Bowl.

Washington has the unfortunate misfortune to play in the very competitive NFC East division, which includes the conference champion Philadelphia Eagles as well as an improved Dallas Cowboys squad and the surprise New York Giants.

In the 24 year Snyder owned the Commanders they only reached the playoffs 6 times.
