Jeff Bezos will not be the next team owner of the Washington Commanders, according to his own publication.
The Washington Post's Mark Maske and Nicki Jhabvala reported Wednesday that Bezos, the Amazon billionaire who also owns the Post, has no plans to enter the bidding for the Commanders, seemingly clearing the way for a pair of bids, one from billionaire Josh Harris.
Bezos refraining from bidding on the Commanders isn't much of a surprise given it was previously reported he had been barred from bidding on the franchise by Dan Snyder. The Post itself reported the constantly embattled Commanders owner had blocked Bezos from purchasing his team due to "his disdain for The Post and its coverage of him and his team."
Despite that ban, Bezos had hired investment firm Allen & Company to explore a bid, but the third-richest man in the world is now seemingly out of the running.
