There’s no denying that it pays to be an NFL superstar. Players who are fortunate enough to find themselves in this position reap the rewards that the rest of us can only dream about. Their popularity is off the charts, accolades and hardware are always within their grasp, and their bank accounts are constantly overflowing. It’s a pretty good existence. Of course, as far the money is concerned, it’s actually the team owners who make out like bandits.
The fact that NFL team owners rake in serious loot shouldn’t come as a surprise. After all, if you’re not uncomfortably wealthy, there’s no way in the world you could possibly afford to buy a pro football team in the first place. No, the fact that these individuals swim in dough is hardly shocking. How much they’re worth, however, might throw you for a loop.
According to Forbes, not only is the average NFL team worth $2.3 billion, but the 10 richest NFL team owners are worth a combined $66 billion. Of course, some of these individuals are worth more than others (obviously). Take a look and see for yourself. These are the 10 richest NFL team owners in the biz.
10. Robert McNair
Net worth: $3.5 billion
You know there is some crazy wealth among the richest NFL team owners when Bob McNair, the owner of the Houston Texans, is only No. 10 on the list despite being worth $3.5 billion. But this is the world we live in, and we’re just going to have to accept it. Sort of like how McNair has to accept the fact he most certainly shelled out way too much money this past offseason to sign quarterback Brock Osweiler. Don’t worry, Bob. We all make mistakes.
