Washington owner Daniel Snyder has hired a District of Columbia law firm to review the team’s culture, policies and allegations of workplace misconduct, according to the Associated Press.
Beth Wilkinson of Wilkinson Walsh LLP confirmed to the AP that the firm had been retained to conduct an independent review. It was not immediately clear what those misconduct allegations were.
ESPN first reported that Snyder was hiring the law firm.
The Washington Post is preparing a story about the team that is expected to highlight the culture over the years.
While there has been speculation as to what is coming out, nothing has been confirmed as true. Multiple reporters have indicated that it’s “not pretty.”
Within the past week, Director of player personnel Alex Santos and assistant Richard Mann II were fired, and longtime broadcaster and senior vice president Larry Michael announced he’s leaving the team after 16 years.
Earlier this month, the Washington Post reported that minority owners Fred Smith, Dwight Schar and Robert Rothman have been trying to sell their interest in the franchise. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that they’ve hired the investment bank, Moag & Company, to vet buyers and to sell their stake in the team.
