The NFL Is Lobbying Amazon’s Jeff Bezos ‘Hard’ To Buy An NFL Team

According to veteran sportswriter Peter King, the National Football League is currently lobbying Amazon’s Jeff Bezos to buy an NFL franchise.

It’s no secret that Bezos has a net worth of over $125.3 billion, making him one of the wealthiest individuals in the world. However, he recently passed on the opportunity to bid on the Washington Commanders with their current owner, Dan Snyder. This news has sparked speculation that Bezos may be holding out for a chance to purchase the Seattle Seahawks, a much more stable and recently successful franchise.

Seattle has consistently been a winner in the NFL, with a great coach in Pete Carroll and great general manager in John Schneider. Additionally, the Seahawks boast one of the best fan bases in the league, a state-of-the-art home venue in Lumen Field, and top-notch training facilities that are the envy of many other professional sports teams.

All of these factors make the Seahawks a highly desirable franchise, and if Bezos is serious about investing in the NFL, it’s not hard to see why he would prefer Seattle over the Washington Commanders.

While the NFL is reportedly lobbying Bezos “quietly, but hard,” there’s no telling if he will actually decide to invest in a franchise. However, if he does, it could have a major impact on the league and the sport of football as a whole. With Bezos’ immense wealth and resources, he could potentially increase the value of all NFL teams.

It remains to be seen whether or not Bezos will take the plunge and invest in an NFL franchise. But for fans of the sport and the league itself, the possibility of a new, powerful owner with seemingly endless resources is certainly an exciting prospect.
