St. Louis (AP) - Conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh says he is teaming up with St. Louis Blues owner Dave Checketts in a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams.
 
Limbaugh declined to discuss details Tuesday. He cited a confidentiality agreement with Goldman Sachs, the investment firm hired by the family of former Rams owner Georgia Frontiere to review assets of her estate.
 
Limbaugh also declined to discuss other partners that might be involved in the bid, but said he and Checketts would operate the team.
 
Forbes magazine has estimated the Rams franchise has a value of $929 million.
