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.
