Roger Goodell, the NFL Commissioner, stated in May that he doesn't see any immediate changes to the Seahawks ownership situation. That word was also received by the team on Tuesday.
Since Allen's death in 2018, Jody Allen has been the Seahawks chairperson and trustee of her brother Paul G. Allen’s trust. She issued a statement Tuesday regarding the Seahawks, NBA's Portland Trail Blazers and other topics. Phil Knight, Nike founder, reportedly offered to buy the Trail Blazers in an earlier year. However Allen stated that neither team is up for sale and no sales negotiations are taking place.
Allen stated that the time will come when teams will be on the market.
Paul intends to give the vast majority of his wealth to charity, and it will be a time when that will change. However, estates this large and complex can take between 10 to 20 years to settle down. Allen stated in her statement that there is no set time frame by which teams should be sold.
PFT last month noted that Washington would receive 10 percent of any Seahawks sale before May 2024. This could be where Allen's thinking about the future of the team changes, but for now it appears that Seattle will continue to operate as before.
