In fact, Allen was in a playful mood about missing out on the $4.65 billion purchase…saying, “When you lose to the richest family in the world, it’s not a bad day. in the office.”
Allen says he’s already set his sights on the next available team – explaining he’s completely undeterred by how the Broncos’ sale ended.
“Listen,” the 61-year-old said. “Buying an NFL football team is a process and we had the pleasure of being part of that process. We didn’t get this one, but I’m very confident we’ll get the next one. “
Allen said owning a team is very important to him – telling us that becoming the league’s first-ever black owner is a huge goal for him.
Allen credited Robert Kraft and Roger Goodel for giving him the tools to one day accomplish this feat… and added that he was in no rush to give up on this dream.
“We’re going to find something,” Allen said. “We will. It’s only a matter of time.”
