Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos is reportedly interested in buying an NFL team and has supporters in own circuits.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported the interest of the world's richest man although there is currently no team for sale. La Canfora noted that the Seattle Seahawks will be sold after the late owner Paul Allen's death, and the NFL has "concerns" about the Denver Broncos' ownership situation.
Bezos has a net worth of more than $ 1
Washington owner Dan Snyder has reportedly grown near Bezos, which is moving to the nation's capital. Snyder has tried and failed for years in finding funds for a new stadium in town. FedExField is in Landover, Maryland, about 10 miles outside D. C.
La Canfora noted that there is a possibility Bezos can help Snyder in the hunt for a new stadium.
Amazon already has a partnership with the NFL to stream Thursday Night Football. It's possible Bezos will look to continue expanding his relationship with the league from a business perspective, rather than becoming an owner himself. The league's television contracts are to be renegotiated, and the NFL may look to delve deeper into the streaming game with a more exclusive, long-term partnership with Amazon.
