Amazon founder Jeff Bezos interested in owning NFL team, has strong support among current owners - CBS Sports

Meanwhile, almost 3 years after rejecting a contract offer from the Broncos,
Colin Kaepernick will perform a workout Saturday for NFL teams' management.

NFL clubs were informed Tuesday that a private workout will be held for free-agent quarterback Colin Kaepernick
on Saturday in Atlanta, according to a copy of a memo obtained by ESPN.
The session will include on-field work and an interview. All teams are invited to attend, and video of both
the workout and the interview will be made available to them.

The Seahawks or Broncos May be in okay? Interesting. Wouldn’t put it past Bezos to be bold, buy a team, move it to London. The NFL wants this to happen some day. It will likely be a smaller market team such as Jacksonville.

The UK want an NFL team the same way they want a President

Mexico City will get an NFL team before London.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

Kaepernick would be a fit on his old team, the 49ers. QB is their only weak link.

Amazon Anaconda's seems a natural.
Also the Colts could use a talented QB

Why replace one weak leak with another? Let's not forget his performance went way downhill before he found another way to make headlines.

The offense changed. He didn't fit. He's a natural pistol guy. This offense suits that. There aren't any better QB's out there wasting away.

Do you moonlight as a publicist? This is one hell of a telling of the story of how Kap left the employ of the NFL.

Very "Tips and Deals."

Making it sound like it was his decision to not play in the NFL is at best misleading.
fact: Blackballed by league owners and GMs. They'd sign and play a Nathan Peterman before a Kapernick.

I remember when the Raiders took in all the rejects that nobody wanted. They drank, smoked, womanized and made opponents feel the pain and won Super Bowls. Once Al got into obsessing over 40 yard dash numbers and moving his team around, he lost focus. Al and the NFL were enemies and he won every lawsuit they put to him in order to control him. Now his son gets pimped by Jerry Jones. Alex Spanos' son too. Weaklings. Only the Pats come close to that ethic. Belichick's world and not Kraft, he's just lucky.

I remember those Raiders, too. Browns would cut someone loose and BAM...there he was on the Raiders, ruining the Browns' day.

Not the Pats of Al's heyday, those teams were dreadful. They had a broke owner, Billy Sullivan, who bought the franchise for a $10,000 entrance fee. They bounced from Nickerson (BU) field to Fenway to anywhere else they could find. Billy was a fuel oil dealer and would barter heating oil for uniform cleaning, stadium rental and just about anything else he could swing. The team would bus to NY for Titan games and fly coach elsewhere. When the played Dallas (now KC) Lamar Hunt would spring for the local Holiday Inn lodging.

I introduced my yet to be wife to pro football at a snow filled game at BU, she was so impressed she's not gone to another game since. Kraft took a shaky (we might move to Connecticut) team and made it respectable. Pete Carroll learned how to lose NFL games with the Pats. Jim Plunkett and Steve Grogan never won much but were fun to watch. By the time Drew Bledsoe became a winning QB, Kraft had crafted an organization and framework that was ready for a Belichick/Brady duo.

But for a freak accident the football world might still think of Tom Brady as that low round draft pick who never had a chance to amount to anything and Kraft would have been on to other money things like Fan Duel.

hahahaha

I'm only vouching for the very specific Belichick years. He and Tom (and other players) are all I'm willing to acknowledge. I still sting from the Tuck Rule game. You know why I won't glorify Kraft. I only have a few Raiders games left. I'm gonna miss them.
