Aside from Combs, other investors reportedly include Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey and Saudi Arabian billionaire businessman Al Waleed bin Talal Al Saud.

Sources say the NFL team’s current owner, Daniel Snyder, is interested in selling the franchise. On Nov. 2, the Washington Commanders issued a statement announcing Snyder retained a major bank to put the team up for sale, but no final decision has been made.
