Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is reportedly looking at an NFL team purchase – and has strong support from current NFL owners to do so.
CBS Sports says that the richest man in the world is interested in buying an NFL team, if only there was one available for sale.
Bezos, who owns the Washington Post, watched the Super Bowl in February in February from the suite of NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and is easily endorsed by Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and others, CBS said.
He has also spent much of his time around Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and is in the process of completing renovations on a $ 23 million mega house near Embassy Row in the nation's capital.
After purchasing the mail, Bezos moved the newspaper to a new location and is reportedly setting up an Amazon hub in the area. CBS Sports speculated that Bezos could also team up with Snyder as he pursues a new stadium, perhaps as a sponsor.
With a fortune of $ 1
But no team is currently for sale, according to the report, though CBS speculated that the Seattle Seahawks could go on sale in light of owner Paul Allen's death last year.
A family dispute by the owners of the Denver Broncos, whose principal owner, Pat Bowlen, died in June, could soon have made it into play as well, the report states.
Amazon already has a partnership with the NFL to stream "Thursday Night Football."
