Jeff Bezos Can Bid For NFL’s Washington Commanders With Jay-Z

Jeff Bezos is interested in an offer for the NFL’s Washington Commanders, possibly with music mogul Jay-Z as an investor, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Jeff Bezos is interested in an offer for the NFL’s Washington Commanders, possibly with music mogul Jay-Z as an investor, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Billionaires Dan and Tanya Snyder said on Wednesday they were exploring options, including a sale of the commanders, weeks after they were again under pressure to resign. The team and owners have Bank of America Corp. hired to ‘consider possible trades’.

Should Bezos, 58, enter the commander’s sweepstakes and use his $115 billion personal fortune, it would be difficult for other bidders to compete. He is the fourth richest person in the world, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

The Commanders, who last finished with a winning record in 2016, are estimated to be worth about $4.8 billion, according to Sportico. At that price, it would exceed the $4.65 billion that a group led by Rob Walton paid for the NFL’s Denver Broncos earlier this year.

A representative for the commander declined to comment on Bezos’ interest.

shopping spree

Bezos, the founder of Amazon.com Inc., has had a shopping spree in recent years. In early 2020, he agreed to pay $165 million for a nine-acre Beverly Hills mansion, setting a record for a Los Angeles home. He also ordered a 417-foot superyacht, which likely cost more than $500 million to build, and was criticized earlier this year for nearly being forced to dismantle a Dutch bridge.

Jay-Z, 52, whose real name is Shawn Carter, was formerly a minority shareholder of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets.

Amazon, meanwhile, is weeks into a $13 billion 11-year deal that will make it the exclusive home of the NFL’s “Thursday Night Football.” The first regular season broadcast attracted 13 million viewers to the streaming service, delivering an online audience that rivals traditional TV.

TMZ previously reported the potential interest, as did the Washington Post, which is owned by Bezos.
