Jeff Bezos is interested in purchasing an NFL team and "has strong support within the league to eventually join their ranks," CBS Sports reports.

Potential targets: No teams are currently on the market, but that could change soon.

  • The Seahawks will eventually be sold following Paul Allen's death (it's currently owned by Allen's trust), and Bezos' strong presence in Seattle could make him a good fit.
  • The Broncos are dealing with an intrafamily squabble in the wake of Pat Bowlen's death, which could result in the team being sold.

By the numbers: Bezos has a net worth of roughly $104 billion, which would make him the richest NFL owner by a cool ~$92 billion.

  1. David Tepper, CAR ($12B)
  2. Stan Kroenke, LAR ($9.7B)
  3. Jerry Jones, DAL ($8.5B)
  4. Shahid Khan, JAX ($8.5B)
  5. Stephen Ross, MIA ($7.6B)
