Three NFL players are part of a group of investors who have joined Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez in a bid to buy the New York Mets.

Brian Urlacher, Travis Kelce and DeMarco Murray are now part of the group.

The group has already submitted its initial bid of $1.7 billion. Billionaire Steve Cohen has made a top bid so far of $2 billion, according to a report by the New York Post.

Jeff Wilpon would prefer to sell to the Rodriguez-Lopez group if its offer is close to the best bid at the end of the auction.
