Jay-Z had multiple reasons for becoming part of the NFL family, and we have learned one of them is that he is going to become part owner of an NFL team … and it’s going to happen soon.
Sources connected to Jay and with direct knowledge says … Jay is going to have a “significant ownership interest” in an NFL team.
As for which team … we’re not being told, but we are told “it is going to happen in the near future.”
We’re told Jay wants to become a part owner “because he’s a huge fan, already has a sports business and wants to continue to be a change agent for the NFL.”
There’s a question … can Jay manage players if he owns a team? Our sources make it clear … “Jay is not an NFL agent and does not take part in the operations of the NFL players in Roc Nation.”Play video content
