Rapoport: Broncos have picked successor to become next owner

Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen dies at 75

Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen dies at 75

Bowlen Family (Wife Annabel, Children Amie, Beth, Patrick, Johnny, Brittany, Annabel, Christianna) "We are saddened to inform everyone that our beloved husband and father, Pat Bowlen, passed on to the next chapter of his life late Thursday night peacefully at home surrounded by family". Heaven got a little bit more orange and blue tonight. Even during his battle with Alzheimer's, you could still see that same strength and dignity in Pat that he brought to the office every single day for more than 30 years.

"My family and I are saddened by the loss of Pat Bowlen, and our hearts are with the Bowlen family and the entire Denver Broncos organization during this hard time".

"On behalf of my family and Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, we wish the Bowlen family and the entire Denver Broncos organization comfort and solace in this hard time". He implemented and established the culture of winning we all know and love, and did anything and everything in his power to make this team and the league he was part of better.

Bowlen will be remembered for transforming the team into a winning franchise, having bought the club in 1984.

With sterling on-field accolades, Bowlen's impact can also be felt within the league itself. Bowlen served on 15 different NFL ownership committees, including his work as chairman of both the NFL Broadcasting Committee and NFL Management Council Executive Committee.

Bowlen was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a contributor in the class of 2019 and will be enshrined in August.

Perhaps his most long-lasting legacy, however, will remain with the Denver community itself. Pat Bowlen was the heart and soul of the Denver Broncos.

Before purchasing the Denver Broncos from Edgar Kaiser in 1984, Bowlen and his family made their fortune in Canadian oil, real estate, mining and his law practice.

It's awesome to see so many (18 by my count) different National Football League teams make a public statement about Bowlen and what he meant to the NFL.

Bowlen was born on February 18, 1944, in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, and attended the University of Oklahoma, where he was a receiver on the freshman football team and later earned degrees in business and law.
