Singer Jon Bon Jovi might be buying into a football team again. However, this time around, it won’t be in the Arena Football League.

Bon Jovi was part owner of the Philadelphia Soul, before the team folded due to the AFL lockout a few years ago. Now, Bon Jovi is in talks to buy a 15% stake in the Atlanta Falcons team.

According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, it would reportedly cost Bon Jovi $150 million for that 15% stake. The 15% stake would also be an increase over other limited partners in the league, according to Mortensen.

Blank confirmed that the team sides were talking. However, he did not give any details about the talks.

Bon Jovi was the founder and primary owner of the Philadelphia Soul from 2004 through 2008. The Arena Football League folded after the 2009 season.

The Soul team, without Bon Jovi as part of the leadership, is expected to return to the field this season at the Wells Fargo Center.

Philadelphia will officially kick off their season on March 11th against the Pittsburgh Power. They will be on the road for four out of the first five weeks with a bye in week 3 before returning to the Wells Fargo Center on Friday, April 15th against the Tampa Bay Storm.

In Bon Jovi’s final game as the team’s owner, the Soul defeated the San Jose SaberCats, 59-56, in ArenaBowl XXII.
