We reported earlier today that Dolphins Stadium in Miami may be renamed Landshark Stadium, and now reports are that Jimmy Buffett has accepted a business role with the NFL team. The naming rights arrangement may include two Jimmy Buffett concerts at the stadium according to the South Florida Business Journal:

Sources close to the deal said Buffett will help pay for the [naming rights] by playing two shows at the stadium at little or no cost. That would allow the Dolphins to cash in on a huge gate, whereas Buffett normally takes the lion’s share – one source said 90 percent – of tickets and concessions for his popular shows.

No details have been released on Buffett’s new role with the Dolphins but a news conference is scheduled for next Friday with Buffett and team owner Stephen Ross, a long-time friend. The news conference will be an “exclusive live music performance and media announcement for a major unveiling on behalf of Dolphin Stadium featuring Jimmy Buffett on May 8th”.
