With the Redskins openly in the process of considering new options for a stadium, the NFL named Washington team owner Dan Snyder to the league's Stadium Committee. 

In a statement, the 'Skins said the committee "provides strategic direction to the league and clubs on all stadium matters." The committee is focused on state of the art stadiums and delivering the best fan experience on gamedays. 

Washington's current lease at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., runs through 2026 and team president Bruce Allen has talked about possible new locations for the next stadium. 

Earlier this month, Virginia Governor Terry McAullife told the media that he is working to  bring the Skins to his state. The Skins practice in Loudon County and hold training camp in Richmond. 

Despite McAullife's efforts, the team has said they will talk with officials in Maryland and the District before any decision is finalized. 

Other owners on the stadium committee include Steelers President Art Rooney II and Stephen Jones of the Cowboys. 

Snyder currently sits on six other committees, and is the co-chair of the digital media committee.
