    Hogan Exits Talks for Redskins Stadium in Prince George's

    The possibility of a Redskins stadium near MGM National Harbor in Prince George's County seems to have fizzled out: Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has reportedly pulled out of talks with the team. News4's Drew Wilder reports. (Published Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2019)

    Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan has reportedly pulled out of talks to build a Redskins stadium near MGM National Harbor in Prince George's County, NBC Sports Washington reports.

    There were discussions of a land swap between Maryland officials and the federal government that would free up a parcel of land adjacent to the MGM National Harbor casino, and Hogan was working on potentially putting a new Redskins stadium there.

    Hogan is still pursuing the land swap deal for other purposes, other reports say.

    The Redskins' lease at FedEx Field, in Landover, Maryland, ends after 2027. NBC Sports Washington says the team would likely choose to leave Prince George's County and move to RFK Stadium in the District or build a new stadium. 

    D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser told News4 that her offer for the Redskins to move to the city still stands but said that the team would have to foot the bill.
