DENVER, Colo. -
Reggie Fowler - the man who could be the future king of the Minnesota Vikings and the first African-American owner in NFL history - is an enigma.
His personal fortune is estimated at more than $400 million, and his far-reaching business interests include a cattle ranch in northeastern Colorado and real estate holdings in Arizona and Colorado estimated to be worth $300 million.
Yet Fowler drives a 5-year-old Toyota short-bed pickup.
He was a standout linebacker for the Wyoming Cowboys, a player so tough he played a football game two days after slicing off the end of his right index finger.
