Peyton Manning has previously been very close to buying the Broncos multiple times. But it was never put on paper. Pat Bowlen is the current owner of the team. He is seemingly on his way out. After retirement, Peyton has settled in Denver with his family. He has maintained close relations with the club. If Manning takes control of the Broncos, we will surely see him in a management position. He will help the team to become better. 

CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reported“Sources said former Broncos star quarterback Peyton Manning, who is very interested in a potential ownership piece in the franchise and a possible role in serving in a management position as well, has already had discussions with several of the groups expected to be favorites to land the team, and his strong ties to Denver, where his family has lived since his playing days, and universal respect throughout the football world, would be a boon to any potential ownership group aligned with him.”
