Here is Wednesday’s collection of Washington Commanders news links from around the internet. Each bullet point has a link at the beginning and then an excerpt from the story (if available). Enjoy!

  • Rothman sues Bank of America, others over Commanders sale – ESPN Robert Rothman, the Tampa, Florida, billionaire who is chairman and CEO of Black Diamond Capital, alleges that Bank of America, along with Snyder and NFL officials, who are not named defendants in the lawsuit, “conspired” to force him and his two fellow minority partners to sell their 40 percent stake to Snyder for $875 million in April 2021. The sale price reflected a team valuation of less than $3 billion, the lawsuit says. In July 2023, Snyder sold the Commanders for $6.05 billion, which the lawsuit claims “was the culmination of (Bank of America’s) and Snyder’s conspiratorial conduct.”

  • Commanders bench Sam Howell; Jacoby Brissett to start Sunday – ESPN “This is part of the growth,” Rivera said. “We’re all culpable in this situation, too. This is not an indictment on Sam or how my feelings toward Sam have changed. I really do think this guy can be a really good quarterback in this league, I really do. I also think sometimes, when things get tough and get hard … this has been a long year for everybody. This is a chance for him to take a breath.”
