The NFL has had a long-standing exclusive deal with Direct TV centered around NFL Sunday Ticket, a television package add-on that gives you access to every NFL game, every Sunday, no matter which market you live in. This business had always been booming but rose to another level in the era of fantasy football. 

In recent years, with the rise of streaming services and cord-cutting, the exclusive deal with Direct TV has seemed to limit Sunday Ticket's potential. If the NFL does indeed decide to opt out, they could very well move the service to a company with the digital infrastructure in place to facilitate it on a much larger scale. 

A company that has worked with the league before and broadcasted games is Amazon. 

Amazon seems to be the logical choice here. They're taking over New York City next, why not add the country's most prominent sports league to that list? Time will tell if the NFL opts out, but for now, all signs seem to be pointing to Jeff Bezos recouping some of that money he lost in the divorce, via the NFL.
