NFL: Reports: Rams to be sold to Illinois businessman


JIM SALTER
Associated Press Writer

ST. LOUIS Published reports say the majority owners of the St. Louis Rams have reached an agreement to sell the team to Illinois businessman Shahid Khan.

The Web site for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and the online newspaper Globe-Democrat.com cited unnamed sources in reporting the sale.

Calls from The Associated Press to the Rams, Khan and the NFL office were not immediately returned Thursday.

Khan is the 55-year-old president of an auto parts manufacturer. STLtoday.com reports he will purchase the 60 percent of the Rams owned by Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez.

The sale would need to be approved by NFL owners.

League sources told STLtoday.com that Khan is a Rams fan who is committed to keeping the team in St. Louis.
