Snyder has been trying to get a state-of-the-art stadium built in Washington, DC, and Bezos can help him build one.

“Bezos moved The Washington Post to a new location after purchasing the paper, is setting up an Amazon hub in the area and some believe could aid Snyder’s pursuit of a new stadium, perhaps even with an Amazon sponsorship,” the report elaborated.

Amazon has a partnership with the NFL to stream Thursday Night Football and he may buy an NFL team from a business perspective.
