Media mogul Byron Allen says he's going to make a bid for the Denver Broncos. He revealed that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Patriots owner Robert Kraft encouraged him to look into buying a team back in 2019.
There's an opportunity to do so and Allen is preparing to do so. If he is successful it would make him the first black majority owner in the NFL.
“NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft came to me in November of 2019 and asked me to take a good look at buying an NFL team,” Allen, chairman and chief executive officer at Allen Media Group, said in a statement in response to inquiries about his interest in the Broncos.
“And after serious consideration, I strongly believe I can help effectuate positive changes throughout the league,” Allen said in a statement. “And for that reason, I will be making a bid for the Denver Broncos.”
Expect Allen to have some stiff competition. Peyton Manning and company is expected to make a run at buying the team as well.
