Glazer, Blank among America's wealthiest

We’ve got two NFC South representatives on the list of Forbes Magazine’s 400 Richest Americans for 2009.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer (and family) comes in at No. 139. The magazine says Glazer is worth $2.4 billion.
Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank is tied for No. 317 with a $1.3 billion net worth. Interestingly, Edward DeBartolo Jr. is one of the people tied with Blank. DeBartolo formerly owned the San Francisco 49ers, lives in the Tampa Bay area and his name is frequently thrown out when people speculate about the Glazers selling the Buccaneers, even though there never has been any indication they’re on the market.
Look through the full list. You’ll see a bunch of other NFL owners.
