It may come as a surprise to you if you haven't paid much attention to it, but Jon Bon Jovi really, really wants to buy an NFL team.
Bon Jovi did his best to acquire the Buffalo Bills earlier this year but failed in that quest and now it looks like the former rock star has turned his attention to the Tennessee Titans, according to CBS Sports.
With the Titans in a potentially sticky place when it comes to ownership and who the figurehead is, Tennessee is actually a very good option for JBJ. However, it seems like the Titans are rebuffing him as well.

Speaking too USA Today earlier this week, Amy Adams Strunk, the daughter of Titans founder Bud Adams, made it very well known that the Titans are not available to anyone - celebrity or not.
“I don’t know how many different ways to say it. Haven’t talked to Bon Jovi or anybody else for that matter, and it’s not for sale," Adams Strunk said.
“It’s part of our heritage – my dad’s legacy. We’re not going anywhere.”
Adams Strunk is the controlling owner of the franchise, but she does not actually have full legal control of the team at the moment.
The NFL has rules stating that one person must control each team and the Titans have already incurred a hefty fine for their noncompliance.
Rumors about a possible sale have surrounded the team since Adams died in 2013, but Adams Strunk has insisted that the team is not for sale.
We'll have to really wait and see how this one pans out, but it looks like Bon Jovi has been "shot through the heart" yet again in his quest to become an NFL owner.
