Should the Denver Broncos hit the market in 2022, they likely won’t be sold to the world’s second-richest person.

Jeff Bezos, who recently stepped down as Amazon CEO, is reportedly not interested in buying the NFL team. Bezos, who is worth $193.8 billion as of Monday, is second only to Elon Musk ($247.8 billion) in net worth.

The Broncos ownership situation has been in flux since 2014, when previous owner Pat Bowlen surrendered control of the team to a trust that would either sell the team or pass it along to one or more of his seven children. Bowlen passed away in June 2019.

A potential sale of the team was stalled until July, when a judge dismissed a lawsuit brought by two of Bowlen’s daughters, Amie Bowlen Klemmer and Beth Bowlen Wallace, who claimed that the trustees had unduly influenced their father.

  • While the team is not currently for sale, Front Office Sports reported in September that internal differences in the family could lead to an ownership transition.
  • The price for the Broncos is predicted to be around $4 billion.
  • Bezos had previously looked into purchasing 40% of the Washington Football Team and is reportedly still interested in NFL ownership.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones have both been vocal in their support for Bezos joining their ranks as team owners, with Jones claiming in 2018 that he’d “carry [Bezos] piggyback to get him to the NFL.”
