Are Jeff Bezos and Jay Z teaming up for a duet?  

The news that the Washington Commanders could be up for sale has sparked a wide range of reports about who might be interested in purchasing the team. Two huge names emerged as potential candidates on Thursday, with one report indicating that the pair could actually enter business together. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and rapper Jay-Z are both interested in the Commanders, according to TMZ Sports.

Jay-Z would need a strategic partner to afford the franchise, and TMZ says a partnership is potentially “on the table.”

 Jeff Bezos would have no issues buying the team outright, his  net worth is $114 billion. Forbes values the Commanders at $5.6 billion. This is not the first time Jay-Z has been linked to the Commanders. Bezos is already in bed with the NFL, he purchased the rights to “Thursday Night Football,” giving him a pre-existing tie to the league.

News of a potential ownership change comes after Commanders owners Dan and Tanya Snyder issued a statement saying they were exploring the sale of all or part of the franchise. The biggest names will probably be interested only in a majority stake, so this is far from a certainty, but it seems plausible for the first time.

Jeff Bezos would be good business for the NFL, certainly better than Daniel Snyder, that’s for sure.
