Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has been connected to the Washington Commanders as the NFC East franchise goes through the process of being sold, he reportedly is open to buying another team in the NFL.
According to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, “Bezos would be as interested, if not more so, in buying the Seahawks than the Commanders.” Breer also noted a number of NFL owners want Bezos to purchase a team and be part of the league:
Josh Kosman of the New York Post reported last week that Dan Snyder “prevented” Bezos from bidding in a private auction for the franchise even though the Amazon founder “wanted to participate” due to the fact that the Washington Post, which is owned by Bezos has written multiple pieces on Snyder and the “toxic work place” that occurred under him.
As for the Seahawks, the team is not for sale and is owned by the Paul G. Allen Trust. The late Paul Allen’s sister, Jody Allen, is the chair of the Seahawks and released a statement last July saying the franchise is not for sale.
