Jeff Bezos May Bid on NFL's Washington Commanders With Jay-Z

Jay-Z, Jeff Bezos reportedly exploring buying commanders from Dan Snyder.


Amazon's Jeff Bezos and hip hop mogul Jay-Z are reportedly among the high-profile names interested in purchasing the Washington Commanders from Dan Snyder.


People reported, Bezos is “looking into buying the Washington Commanders," while TMZ Sports reported a partnership between Bezos and Jay-Z is "on the table.”


Bezos has a net worth of at least $125 billion and is more than comfortable paying the projected $6+ billion price that the sale of the team is expected to command. He also has the wealth to build a stadium without the help of local or state governments. There has been plenty of speculation that once Dan Snyder is out of the picture, the RFK Stadium site will be back on the table as the next home for the team.


On top of the Bezos report, the addition of Jay-Z to the ownership group would definitely grab headlines. It is not needed for Bezos to get what he wants.


Snyder announced on Wednesday his intention to explore a full or partial sale of the Commanders though the team offered no promises to actually sell the team.


“Dan and Tanya Snyder and the Washington Commanders announced today that they have hired BofA Securities to consider potential transactions,” the statement read. “The Snyders remain committed to the team, all of its employees and its countless fans to putting the best product on the field and continuing the work to set the gold standard for workplaces in the NFL.”

As the Snyders prepare for a potential sale, Dan is facing a probe from the NFL and the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, which are looking into workplace misconduct within the franchise. The league initially launched an investigation into the Commanders’ organization after a July 2020 report by the Post detailed accounts from 15 former female employees alleging sexual harassment by various staffers over the course of 18 years.

Snyder purchased the franchise in 1999. The Commanders have made six playoff appearances under his leadership.
