The Washington Commanders could potentially be sold in the coming months, and there are several groups that are interested in purchasing the franchise. Is it possible only one will be able to afford it?
The Denver Broncos sold last summer for $4.65 billion, which was a record price for a North American sports franchise. Most expect the price tag for the Commanders to be higher than that if Daniel Snyder decides to sell.
According to Charles Gasparino of Fox Business Network, the word from NFL team owners at the Super Bowl last week was essentially that Jeff Bezos is the only one who can afford the Commanders. There is a belief that the Amazon founder will wait out the process before swooping in and topping all other bids.
