Report: Jaguars For Sale

A report in the Philadelphia Daily News on Wednesday claims that team owner Wayne Weaver is negotiating to sell the team to billionaire C. Dean Metropoulos, who would like to move the team to Los Angeles, according to The Florida Times-Union.

The team has refused to comment while Metropoulos denies the report.

"I must tell you I haven't had any such discussions," Metropoulos was quoted in the Daily News. "I wouldn't know how to give you any credibility to that because I don't know anything about it."

Weaver has consistently denied any interest in selling in the team although he acknowledged last year that he was looking for additional investors.
