Snyder’s mother owned 6.5% of the franchise. Dan Snyder took complete control of the team earlier this year when he bought out his former minority partners. Snyder and his family now hold 100% ownership of the franchise.

Dan Snyder and his sister, Michelle, co-founded Snyder Communications, which they eventually sold in 2000. Snyder purchased the team in 1999 for $800 million.

Last month, Snyder’s wife, Tanya, was named co-CEO of the Washington Football Team.
