Jeff Bezos Reportedly Wants To Buy The Seattle Seahawks

Jeff Bezos now reportedly has his eyes on the Seattle Seahawks.

According to the NY Post, the Amazon founder, who is also the world’s richest person with a fortune of $109.5 billion, has been looking to get into team ownership and is reportedly interested in acquiring the Seattle Seahawks, whose stadium sits just 1.5 miles away from Amazon’s headquarters.

The Washington Post, which is also owned by Bezos, broke the news Thursday night, citing an anonymous source “who’s familiar with NFL’s thinking.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Bezos purchasing the Seahawks would mean keeping the franchise in the hands of a local tech billionaire as the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who passed away last year, purchased the team back in 1997.

Forbes magazine has the Seahawks, who are currently second in the NFC West, with an 8-2 record and last Super Bowl win in 2014 — valued at $2.7 billion.

While the team isn’t officially up for sale, with his 109.5 Billion dollar fortune, Bezos could easily put down the required 30 percent cash payment as per the NFL’s ownership rules.
