Forbes: Kraft Worth $2.3 Billion

BOSTON (CBS) – New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is a very rich man.

According to Forbes Magazine, the Patriots owner is worth a cool $2.3 billlion -- one of 19 NFL team owners that can write the title "billionare" next to their name.

While the figure may seem high – and trust us, it is – it only puts Kraft as the eighth-richest owner in the league.

Topping the list is Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen, who trumps all other NFL owners at $15 billion. Allen is followed by St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke at $5 billion, Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and Tampa Bay Buccaneers owners Malcolm Glazer -- each at $4.4 billion, Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shahid Khan and New York Giants owner John Tisch -- who both sit at $2.9 billion, and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones at $2.7 billion.

But of those ahead of Kraft, only Tisch and Jones have Super Bowl rings on their fingers.

Kraft has owned the Patriots since 1994, and also owns the New England Revolution of the MLS. Making a Forbes list is nothing new to Kraft, as he also ranks 641st on the Forbes billionaire list and 221st on the U.S. list.
