A recent report by Forbes compiled a list of the wealthiest franchise owners in the league. Carolina Panthers head honcho, David Tepper, tops that list with a reported net worth of $14.5 billion. Matt Rhule’s boys endured a difficult outing in the league last year. They finished 3rd in the NFC South behind Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a 5-11 record.

The Carolina-based organization did not bring in much through regular season revenue. But Tepper’s hedge funds did well. His overall net worth rose by 21% between 2020-21.

The second person on the list was Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones. As per the report, he boasts a net worth of $8.9 billion. Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke is third as his net worth took an 18% drop to reach $8.2 billion this fiscal year. Next among the NFL’s richest owners are Jacksonville Jaguars’ Shahid Khan ($8 billion), Miami Dolphins’ Stephen Ross ($7 billion), New England Patriots boss Robert Kraft ($6.9 billion), and Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank ($6.2 billion).

It will be interesting to see who makes the list next year. Is it going to be the same big names as usual or will we see a new ‘billionaire’ enter the big leagues. Either way, we’re eagerly waiting for the season to start in the coming months.
