Jay-Z and Jeff Bezos are reportedly interested in a partnership to purchase the Washington Commanders, sources with knowledge of the situation told TMZ Sports on Thursday (November 3).

The two billionaires' reported interest comes one day after team owners Dan and Tanya Snyder announced they've hired Bank of America Securities to consider "potential transactions" in relation to the Washington Commanders NFL franchise.

"Dan and Tanya Snyder and the Washington Commanders announced today that they have hired BoA Securities to consider potential transactions," the Commanders said in a statement re-shared by CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones on Wednesday (November 2). "The Snyders remain committed to the team, all of its employees, and its countless fans to putting the best product on the field and continuing the work to set the gold standard for workplaces in the NFL.

The franchise was also reported to be facing a criminal investigation launched by the U.S. attorney's office in the Eastern District of Virginia in relation to allegations that the team "engaged in financial improprieties," ESPN reported on Wednesday (November 2), citing two sources familiar with the situation.

Bezos currently ranks as the second-richest person in the world with an estimated net worth of $151 billion, according to Forbes.

Jay-Z has an estimated net worth of $1.3 billion, according to Forbes.
