Stan Kroenke wants to get the Rams moved to Los Angeles. If that does not happen, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora wrote on Sunday morning that Kroenke could "perhaps purchas[e] the Broncos down the road and [sell] the Rams to an investor looking to keep the team in St. Louis."
Shortly after that story was published, Broncos spokesman Patrick Smyth shot it down on Twitter.
An option will not be the Denver Broncos. Plan remains in place to keep the team in the Bowlen family. https://t.co/TZW6qWZgCG— Patrick Smyth (@psmyth12) November 29, 2015
KUSA-TV's Mike Klis added on Twitter that "you have better chance of buying Broncos than Stan Kroenke," according to a source close to Pat Bowlen Trust.
Kroenke essentially owns the NBA's Denver Nuggets, the NHL's Colorado Avalanche, the MLS's Colorado Rapids, and the NLL's Colorado Mammonth (those teams are in the name of his wife and children—Kroenke technically can't own teams in multiple markets based on NFL ownership restrictions).
Kroenke also owns the Rams and is the majority shareholder of Arsenal, an English soccer team.
According to the team, Kroenke will not own the Broncos down the road.
This story has been updated from a previous version: La Canfora's speculation was previously mentioned as a report. The term "report" has been removed.
