What would he name the team; the Amazon Packages? Amazon CEO and the world’s richest man Jeff Bezos is reportedly interested in spending some of his wealth to buy an NFL team.
League sources told CBS Sports that Bezos has become close friends with several NFL franchise owners and are encouraging Bezos to join their club.
No current NFL team is up for sale, but Seattle and Denver could come up for sale in the next few years. There are rumors that Bezos is looking to D.C. to partner up as part owner of the Redskins.
Buying an NFL team ain’t cheap; Buffalo has the most affordable team, according to Forbes, at $1.9 billion. Yet with Bezos valued $111 billion, NFL franchise money is pocket change.
