The Washington Commanders have bought land in Woodbridge, Virginia, for what could be a potential site of the NFL team's next stadium, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Monday because the team had not announced the acquisition. The Commanders paid approximately $100 million for 200 acres of land in Prince William County and are still considering other locations in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, the person said.

This site is just over 20 miles outside D.C., about a 45-minute drive from RFK Stadium, which was the team's home from 1961-1996. The Commanders' current lease at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, expires in 2027.

Giants' Jones unfazed by contract status

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Daniel Jones has rarely given any insight into his feelings in his three seasons as the New York Giants starting quarterback.

So it was no surprise Thursday when the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 draft shrugged off how he felt after the Giants refused last month to pick up his fifth-year option on his rookie contract.


New program aims to boost minority hires

Even though the NFL attempted to enhance opportunities for minority candidates to become head coaches in a league whose players are 70% Black, there was a disconnect. Same thing for front office positions, although more improvement had been seen in recent years in that area.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia Eagles strengthened their secondary, agreeing on a one-year contract with veteran cornerback James Bradberry on Wednesday.

Bills offer support at site of shooting

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo resident Jamie Lash was giddy as Buffalo Bills player Josh Thomas draped his arm around her shoulder and smiled for a picture Wednesday. It was a rare moment of lightness in a week spent mourning the violent deaths of 10 people at the Tops supermarket where she used to work.

"It means unity. It means support," Lash said, adjusting the Bills cap someone else from the team had placed on her head.
