The NFL has been investigating Dan Snyder and the Washington Football Team for months following numerous reports of sexual misconduct in the organization that have spanned over a decade. Beth Wilkinson was originally hired by Snyder to do an internal evaluation, but the reins were handed over to the NFL quickly. The report was close to being finished last month, and now we have a possible update on their findings, and it is potentially huge for everyone involved.

The Sports Junkies radio show on 106.7 the Fan says they have obtained information from the report

The first and foremost recommendation is to “force the owner to divest his ownership of the team,”

“The second recommendation is, and this is direct verbatim from the report,” Sports Junkies host Eric Bickel said. “‘Suspend the owner for a significant period to allow the club time to repair its infrastructure and culture.’ And by the way, that appears to be what they’ve been trying to do for the last several months. They brought Julie [Donaldson] in. They brought Jason Wright in. Wholesale changes.”

These recommendations come as a result of Wilkinson’s belief in the coverup that Snyder tried to orchestrate and the perceived “lack of integrity throughout the internal investigations,” according to Jason Bishop of The Sports Junkies.

“She was recommending this to Goodell mainly because of the coverup and lack of integrity throughout the internal investigations,” Bishop said. “Apparently he was trying to persuade or instruct other employees not to talk to Wilkinson’s firm about what they were investigating. So there was the coverup right there. And once she reported back to Goodell that this was happening, that’s why she’s recommending he needs to go, because of the coverup.”

The NFL has already disputed the Junkies and says there has been no final report submitted from Beth Wilkinson. This is just one report for now, but could be a preview of when the official report is in, and the punishments begin.
