SJ - December 24, 2020

Washington Football Team owner Dan Snyder filed a declaration claiming that one of the franchise's co-owners is attempting to extort him.  He alleges that the co-owner wants him to sell the team.

Snyder also says the co-owner, Dwight Schar, is the one leaking information to the Washington Post.

From TMZ Sports:

Snyder filed a declaration stating Dwight Schar, part of the team's ownership group, has been threatening to leak information related to the sexual misconduct allegations made by former WFT employees.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Snyder says Schar is well aware an independent investigation found no evidence of wrongdoing -- however, he claims Schar repeatedly leaked info about the case to the Washington Post and other media outlets, attempting to smear him.

As for the extortion allegation, Snyder claims Schar told Snyder's attorney he had a bombshell that would "kill Dan" if it came out ... and added he would release it if Snyder didn't "just sell the team."

I don't know too many people who would argue that Snyder needs to keep the team.  Fans hate him, his employees hate him and even his co-owners hate him.  Might be time to cash out.
