Just before the start of training camp, the Washington Football Team announced some sad news Monday with the passing of part owner Arlette Snyder, the mother of Dan Snyder.
The WFT released this statement Monday morning via Twitter.
"With profound sadness the Washington Football Team announces the passing of Mrs. Arlette Snyder, surrounded by her loving family. Mrs. Snyder was a kind, gentle and generous woman who was loved and greatly admired by all who knew her. She will be deeply missed and forever in our hearts. The Snyder family requests that their privacy be respected as they grieve the passing of their mother and grandmother."
Arlette Snyder owned 6.5 percent of the Washington franchise at the time of her death.
