Big news: the lawsuit regarding the Denver Broncos ownership has been dismissed. This lawsuit has been ongoing since the death of Pat Bowlen in 2019. The story about the dismissal of the lawsuit can be found HERE.
Even though we do not know the specifics of the agreement that was made in the lawsuit, we all cannot help but speculate as to whose hands the Denver Broncos may end up in.
Forbes has estimated the Denver Broncos value to be approximately $3.2 billion as of September 2020. Whoever would want to hold the majority in ownership of the Denver Broncos would have to shell out $1.6 billion to hold a 51 percent stake in ownership.

Former Denver Broncos quarterback and Super Bowl 50 winner, Peyton Manning, has expressed interest in some type of ownership. However, Manning is currently valued at a quarter of a billion dollars, so it would not be enough for a majority stake in the Denver Broncos.
