Jerry Jones thinks Bon Jovi would be an 'outstanding candidate' for an NFL owner

Being an NFL owner means you are part of an exclusive fraternity that isn't easy to crack into to.

Jon Bon Jovi is still far from owning an NFL franchise but it looks as though, at the very least, he's got one prominent current owner on his side. 

Jerry Jones spoke to reporters Monday in Atlanta at the NFL meetings via and gave Bon Jovi his endorsement. 

"You talk about individuals and talk about their qualification - there hasn't been anybody more qualified to be involved in sports ownership, or certainly ownership in the NFL, than Jon Bon Jovi."

Reports have linked Bon Jovi to Larry Tannenbaum of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment as a group that plan to bid on the Buffalo Bills. 

"I don't know of anyone that I have any more respect for as a father, or as a husband, or certainly as a potential business partner," Jones said of Bon Jovi. "And so it's a credit to him that he's had the career that he's had, that he's qualified to become an NFL owner. As we know, you can't just wish for that. You have to be able to do something about that financially. So he's an outstanding candidate to be an owner in the NFL, and he's a great friend."
