Bon Jovi dismisses rumors about buying Titans
The Tennessee Titans aren’t actually for sale, but that hasn’t prevented speculation from popping up that a prominent musician is interested in buying the Music City’s NFL team.
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported over the weekend that rock star Jon Bon Jovi is "among the potential suitors playing particular attention to the Titans."
The musician was part of a group that made an unsuccessful bid to purchase the Buffalo Bills after the death of longtime owner Ralph Wilson and is said to remain interested in owning an NFL franchise.
Bon Jovi took to Twitter on Tuesday to address the report, emphasizing the Titans aren’t available for purchase.
The Titans are currently owned by the family of late owner Bud Adams and the team has consistently maintained they’re not selling.
Rumors of my interest in the TN Titans are nothing more than that. I am not part of any group perusing a team that is not for sale. -JBJ
