Music icon John Bon Jovi remains eager to purchase an NFL team, and he’s keeping a close eye on the Tennessee Titans as a team he might pursue, according to a report from Jason La Canfora.
The Titans have repeatedly said the team is not for sale. However, there continues to be plenty of speculation that the team could be soon and Bon Jovi is working to position himself to make the purchase in the Music City, even if many doubt he can afford it.
Bon Jovi isn’t the only one who is expected to be interested. Steelers minority owner Barry Tepper, FedEx founder Fred Smith and the well-connected Frist family are among those who would likely be interested should the team formally come up for sale. Future NFL Hall of Famer and former Tennessee Vol quarterback Peyton Manning would be a candidate to join the team in a front office and/or minority ownership capacity should he opt to retire.
Bon Jovi was previously the owner of the Philadelphia Soul of the Arena Football League from when the team was first founded in 2004 until 2008.
