According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Jimmy Buffett might purchase a minority stake in the Miami Dolphins:

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross has called a 4 p.m. “informal meeting” with the media at which he is expected to announce subtle but important changes to the way the Dolphins do business with their fans and media, according to a source close to Ross.

Ross, who has been searching for investors to become minority owners in the team, may unveil some of the names of the people involved on that front.

The source said Thursday afternoon that Ross has been speaking to several people in the entertainment industry. Singer Jimmy Buffett, a Key West resident, and Miami Sound Machine founder Emilio Estefan are among the entertainment people Ross has discussed including in his ownership group.

It is not known if Ross has signed letters of intent or has closed the sale of minority portions of the team with Buffett or Estefan.
