Meet Byron Allen, Long-Shot Bidder for the Denver Broncos

The favorite among the five candidates bidding for the Denver Broncos is widely believed to be Walmart heir Rob Walton (a theory boosted by the fact that his sons Ben and Sam live in Colorado), followed by fellow billionaires Josh Harris, whose partners include basketball legend Magic Johnson, and new Chelsea F.C. owner Todd Boehly. Two other hopefuls weren't initially named publicly, but one of them has now been identified as a group led by entrepreneur Byron Allen, who talked up his interest in purchasing the franchise during a series of appearances earlier this year, including one on CBS Sunday Morning.

Byron Allen still a candidate for Broncos' ownership

The field is narrowing for candidates to purchase the Broncos. Among the semifinalists is the group headed by Byron Allen, per Mike Klis of 9News. The media mogul was one of the first prospective buyers to be named as an interested party back in February. He confirmed that the NFL had approached him years earlier about the possibility of buying a franchise when the opportunity arose. Doing so successfully would make the 60-year-old the first Black owner in the league.

Weather Channel owner Byron Allen sues Nielsen, alleging that it can't reliably count the viewership of his smaller networks
