A lot of people in the NFL were surprised when Daniel Snyder announced that he may be looking to sell the Washington Commanders.

Snyder has faced a lot of controversies and legal issues since he brought the team and now it looks as if he is finally ready to move on. However, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinks that Snyder might not be as ready as some may think to sell his team.

Jones thinks that Snyder may be just testing the waters.

“I don’t think I was necessarily surprised because he recently acquired a very significant portion of the team,” forty percent from his other partners,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via Ben Standig of TheAthletic.com. “And at the same time, he’s entertaining the building of a new stadium. The acquisition of the partnership interest, as well as the building of the new stadium, is going to require huge economic resources, almost unthinkable economic resources. And so these are the times that you sit down and start your noodling, so to speak, or try to figure out how you’re going to get there and what you’re going to look like when you get there. So this doesn’t surprise me that he set up a time of real, real planning or real thinking about how to manage the economic resources it takes to be where we want the Washington team to be.”

Jones continues to say he thinks the Snyders are just considering all their options including selling the team.

“I bet that all options are on the table, and then you see what might be possible,” he said. ”It’s one thing to sit there at your table and draw up all your plans and figure out how you’re going to get it done financially. But you in the mirror, in this cases, you need more, and that’s a third party, so he’s out testing the waters.”

We will see if what Jones said is right soon enough.
