If Rob Walton buys Broncos, he would instantly become NFL's richest owner

The Denver Broncos are for sale and they are hoping to have new ownership in place before the start of the 2022 NFL season. The Broncos have drawn plenty of interest from potential bidders and the team is expected to be sold for more than $4 billion this offseason. Rob Walton, the son of late Walmart founder Sam Walton, has emerged as the favorite to buy the team. He has a net worth of $70.5 billion, according to an estimate Forbes. With that kind of wealth, Walton could easily afford to outbid any of the other known candidates who are interested in buying the team.
