According to reports, a group of National Football League owners is looking to select Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos as the next Seattle Seahawks franchise.

Key players in the NFL have approached the entrepreneur to purchase the club after Microsoft co-founder and former owner Paul Allen passed away after battling a recurrence of cancer. Bezos is already involved with the NFL, as Amazon is the mainstreaming sponsor of Thursday Night Football. Not to mention, the Amazon founder is also based in Seattle, almost securing the team’s place in the city. If Bezos passes on the opportunity, it is believed that Los Angeles Clippers owner and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer is next in line to buy the franchise.

Stay tuned for more information as the story develops.

In case you missed it, Amazon recently raised its minimum wage to $15 USD an hour for U.S. workers.
