Redskins owner Daniel Snyder — As one of the NFL's richer and more well-known owners, running the NFL's second-most profitable franchise, Snyder automatically qualifies as a prominent voice. He might have his share of detractors at times, but Snyder's unquestioned business sense and ice-cold, unemotional instincts have a place in the negotiation process, as far as the other owners are concerned. (Translation: He doesn't mind being the bad guy at times.)The article also said that Snyder has a degree of respect among the owners because he's a self-made millionaire who knows how to cut a deal. It also is noted that general manager Bruce Allen has been playing an active role in the talks lately. The article is worth a look.
