Jeff Bezos is out, even though he was never there. Another potential bidder for the Commanders is now in.
According to the Washington PostHouston Rockets owner Tilman Fertitta “is involved in the bidding” for the DC football team.
Fertitta’s bid came in at an estimated $5.5 billion, according to the report, and he is not considered a front-runner.
He is apparently the other unnamed bidder who visited the team’s facility along with Josh Harris.
The news that Fertitta would be a bidder came in the immediate wake of reports from both the New York Post and TheAthletic.com that Bezos, the founder of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post, should not bid for the Commanders.
