Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen has decided to relinquish control of the Broncos as he continues to battle Alzheimer's disease.
As a result of Bowlen's decision, Team President Joe Ellis will take control of the Broncos for the foreseeable future.
Broncos owner Bowlen has taken a reduced role with the team in recent years during his courageous battle with Alzheimer's disease.
In a statement, the Broncos have said that that they will continue to offer support to Bowlen, who has faced up to Alzheimer's with such dignity and strength.
Bowlen took control of the Broncos back in 1984, after he purchased the team from Edgar Kaiser. Denver have had their most success with Bowlen in charge, having appeared in six Super Bowls, winning two during 1997 and 1998 NFL seasons.
