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.
