It’s Good to be a Billionaire

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is one of the wealthiest people on the planet, and he has strong ties to the NFL. He even watched the most recent Super Bowl in commissioner Roger Goodell’s suite. According to Jason La Canfora, these ties could ultimately lead to an even stronger bond due to Bezos wanting to purchase one of the 32 teams.

In a recent report, La Canfora revealed that Bezos has been spending considerable time around NFL owners. He is the owner of the Washington Post and has strong ties to Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder. Bezos is even currently moving to Washington and has plans of setting up an Amazon hub in the area.

Per the report, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones believes that Bezos would be a strong addition to the league.

There are currently no NFL teams for sale, but two possibilities exist in the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos. There is reportedly some concern by the league about mounting lawsuits from various heirs to former Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, who passed away in June 2019.

Similarly, the Seattle Seahawks could be made available. Former owner Paul Allen passed away in Oct. 2018. It is expected that the Seahawks will be sold, but the team is not currently on the market.
