The deal for $6.05 billion is the largest for a North American professional sports franchise. The deal is still pending approval of three-quarters of NFL owners and other customary closing conditions.
The NFL team created a "toxic work culture" for more than two decades, "ignoring and downplaying sexual misconduct" by men at the top levels of the organization, according to a House panel's report.
The team, worth an estimated $5.6 billion, could soon be for sale, after owners Dan and Tanya Snyder said they have hired Bank of America Securities to "consider potential transactions."
Both the team and the NFL had until midnight Monday to provide the House committee with additional documents related to an investigation of allegations of widespread sexual harassment at the team.
The NFL fined the team after an independent investigation of accusations of sexual harassment and bullying in a "highly unprofessional" environment.
In a Washington Post report, 15 women alleged they were sexually harassed and verbally abused while working for the football team. Owner Dan Snyder and the NFL pledge action on the allegations.
