Magic Johnson planning to buy the Jaguars? Haha. Yeah.

New, comments

Boy, a fun day just got more fun. Before I laugh, here.

Phil Senich (who oddly enough represents David Garrard...) of BeyondTheField.net tweets:

ESPN Radio reports Magic Johnson in talks with Jaguars to move team. Kind of puts JDR/ NFL/ timeouts on the back burner.

Immediately followed by someone who I consider much more reliable, Darren Rovell of CBNC tweets:

Let's nip this 1 in the bud. MAGIC JOHNSON HAS NOT BEEN IN TALKS W/JAGUARS TO MOVE TEAM TO LA. TOTALLY FALSE.

C'mon people. Yeah, Magic Johnson is selling his stock in the Lakers and Starbucks and recently stated he wants a team in Los Angeles, but even that wouldn't put him close to having the kind of capital to buy an NFL franchise.

Oh, and I kind of trust Wayne Weaver.

UPDATE:

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network tweets:

The Jags are denying a report Magic Johnson in talks to buy team and move them to LA. Team says no truth to the report
