Sources: Amazon's Jeff Bezos Has Interest In Owning An NFL Team
Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has "interest in purchasing an NFL team and has become close with several current owners," according to sources cited by Jason La Canfora of CBSSPORTS.com. Sources added that Bezos has "strong support within the league to eventually join their ranks." Powerful owners like the Cowboys' Jerry Jones believe Bezos "would be a great addition to the NFL." There are "not any teams currently on the market," though the Seahawks will be sold at some point following the death of former Owner Paul Allen last year. Bezos has ties to Redskins Owner Daniel Snyder, and some observers believe Bezos "could aid Snyder's pursuit of a new stadium, perhaps even with an Amazon sponsorship" (CBSSPORTS.com, 11/10).
