You Won’t Believe How Rich These NFL Team Owners Are


You’re on this page, so I take it you’re a big fan of the NFL, and therefore already know much about how the league is structured, but just incase you’re the type that is only interested in what happens on the field on matchday, let’s give you a brief scoop on what happens when the players are done running into each other. Recently the NFL teams have seen their value catapult, with the Dallas Cowboys sitting on top with an estimated value of $4 billion, now that’s far more than any other sports team in the world, and suffice it to say that the NFL is the richest/most valuable sport league not just in America but in the world, beating the NBA, MLS NHL and even the widely-loved EPL. The rapid rise in the NFL team values also means their owners are getting even richer, and while these owners were already rich before owning NFL teams, their choice to invest big in the franchise have more than paid off by earning them wealth that are absolutely mind-boggling therefore keeping them afloat as billionaires. According to the list compiled by Forbes’s Chris Smith, here are the 10 richest owners of NFL teams.

10. Jimmy Haslam

Team: Cleveland Browns

Net worth: $2.8 billion


Jimmy made his billions as CEO of truck stop company, Pilot Flying J, a company he inherited from his father. He snapped up the Cleveland Browns franchise for $1 billion in 2012. The franchise which was then worth $977 M is now valued at $1.5 B. As revealed in the rather slow rise in value, the team’s performance have been relatively poor, but Haslam whose company enjoyed an amazing 25% profit in the past year doesn’t seem overly bothered. There are rumors that fans of the team are making plans to buy up the whole franchise for the purpose of bettering its performance.

9. Stephen Bisciotti

Team: Baltimore Ravens

Net worth: $3.2 billion

Biscotti co-founded Allegis Group, one of the world’s largest private staffing company with a revenue of over $11 B. His purchase of the NFL franchise helped to enhance his company through popularity. Last year, his team’s running back, Ray Rice was found guilty of domestic violence, which led to his indefinite suspension, causing the team to suffer repercussions, but that is now water under the bridge and the Ravens are up, winning back-to-back games, a few championships and qualifying for play-offs. The Baltimore Ravens team is now valued at $1.93 B.


8. Robert McNair

Team: Houston Texans

Net worth: $3.3 billion

Unlike his counterparts, Rob didn’t buy the team but formed it from scratch, all because of his passion to bring the game to his hometown. Before his 80% stakes in Houston Texans skyrocketed to $1.85 B after half a billion rise in the past year, Rob first acquired affluence from the sale of his Cogen Tech to energy company, Enron for $1.5 B. His team is now valued at $2.5 B. That is sure to rise as he is keen about improving the team’s last season’s performance.
