Falcons owner Arthur Blank has sold a minority stake in his team.

Blank sold 10 percent of the team to three investors, two of whom already owned a small stake in the team, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The deal is believed to be worth $300 million, which puts the value of the Falcons franchise at $3 billion. That’s significantly more than the estimated $2.2 billion that David Tepper paid for the Panthers last year, in the most recent sale of an NFL franchise.

Blank remains the majority owner and will continue to make all the major decisions for the franchise.

  1. Getting 300 million for 10% is getting a pretty good price. Good move Mr. Blank, cause Tepper OVERPAID for the Panthers, and your patsies overpaid for the 10%

    To pay for his yacht and over paid QB

    With $300M he can buy a Luxury cruise liner.

  3. I just bought a ladder at Home Depot so technically I’m a minority owner as well. I invite you all to sit with me in the owners box cause that’s how I roll.

    Blank also knows that Matty Ice is way over rated and has no clue how to reach the Super Bowl.

    You two clowns clearly haven’t followed Matt’s career and paid any attention to his play. Any way you slice it, he is a top 5 QB — whether you like it or not. What has your QB done? Also, pretty sure Blank has a clue how to get to the super bowl seeing as how his team was in one only a few years ago… I will never understand the hate towards Matt. He is a consummate professional and a great example for upcoming kids to watch. Gracious in victory AND defeat. Take notes.

    Well, considering Matt Ryan DID in fact reach the Superbowl….

    BTW, I literally LOL’d when I saw a Ravens fan talking about “way over rated” QBs. I mean seriously, how can you not see how that statement is absolutely DRIPPING with irony?

  6. Someone else already owned this 10%. That guy died in April. It was just sold to other people investors now. Blank owns no less of the Falcons today than he did before.
