Sources - New York Jets owner Woody Johnson interested in buying English Premier League club Chelsea

New York Jets owner Robert "Woody" Johnson is readying a bid for Chelsea F.C. in the English Premier League, according to sources close to the situation.

Johnson already has spoken to Raine Group, which is organizing the bid process, per sources, and he now is vying to become the latest NFL owner to buy into the Premier League.

There are natural synergies with both organizations as the Jets were just awarded marketing rights to the NFL's UK International Home Marketing Areas program. New York and London are sister cities, both culturally and economically.

Johnson is considered to be very knowledgeable of both the Chelsea club and the Premier League, having lived in London, where he served as the United States ambassador.

While there, Johnson is said to have become a fan of the organization and its supporters, and he is aware of the important role that the Premier League plays throughout the United Kingdom.

There currently are multiple NFL owners who own English Premier League teams: Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke and Arsenal F.C., Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan and Fulham F.C., the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Glazer Family and Manchester United, and the San Francisco 49ers' owner Jed York has a minority stake in Leeds United.

Chelsea is currently owned by Russian Roman Abramovich, whose decision to sell the club has apparently been influenced by mounting pressure on the U.K. government to seize the assets of high-value Russian individuals with links to Russia president Vladimir Putin's regime following the country's invasion of Ukraine. Abramovich has always denied any ties to Putin.

Sources have told ESPN's James Olley that Abramovich is seeking around £3 billion ($2.24 billion) for the club. Chelsea, which won the UEFA Champions League last year as Europe's top club team, is currently in third place in the Premier League.

I don't mind Woody at all, he wants to win, he has not been cheap he just makes bad decisions regarding who runs the football part of the team.

He is far far better than his little brother.  I took a lot of flack for hammering Christopher.

Also....Liz Hurley.

He is such a tool.  THIS shows his mind is NOT on the Jets.  He left us to play Ambassador and Chris destroyed the Jets.  Literally gutted the Jets.

For the sake of Chelsea, I hope he does not win this auction.

So... his only real responsibility he sucks at but you like his attitude?  He is an unaccomplished sperm club baby. Yes, Chris is dummer.
