Rumors fly that Broncos are available for purchase

The fact that the Rams have found a buyer reminded me of a rumor that snaked its way through the grapevine last week.

There’s talk that the Denver Broncos could be available to be purchased from current owner Pat Bowlen.

And there’s a connection between the Rams and the Broncos. If Shahid Khan will be buying not only the 60 percent of the Rams currently held by Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez but also the 40 percent owned by Stan Kroenke, Kroenke could couple the cash he gets from Shahid with a chunk of his wife’s Wal-Mart money and purchase the Broncos.

Kroenke already owns the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche and the NBA’s Denver Nuggets. He reportedly was interested in acquiring controlling interest in the Rams, but the league’s cross-ownership rules require teams in multiple leagues to be located in the same market.

We need to be clear on this one. We’re not saying that the Broncos are for sale; we’re saying that there’s a rumor they’re for sale. And we’re speculating that Kroenke could be interested, especially if he’s cashing out his chips in St. Louis.
