Bob Kraft Really Hopes Diddy Will Be NFL Owner

 

EXCLUSIVE

New England Patriots owner says he's still very serious about getting into the NFL owner's fraternity ... telling TMZ Sports he really likes the hip-hop mogul. 

Remember, Kraft was a big supporter of Diddy when he made a push to buy the Carolina Panthers back in 2017. The team was to hedge fund manager David Tepper

So, when we saw Kraft at Michael Rubin's Fanatics Party in ATL on Saturday night, we asked if he thinks Diddy will ever actually accomplish his goal of buying an NFL team. 

"I hope so," Kraft told us ... "I'm a big fan of his."

We then got Diddy a few hours later at Magic City and asked about the ownership situation -- he told us simply, "It's time."

Diddy has the importance of having a black owner in the NFL. And, with reports that several NFL teams could be in the market for a new owner in 2019, could play a big role.
