Allen still easily NFL's richest owner
By Mike Sando
Seahawks owner Paul Allen's estimated net worth in the late 1990s made him wealthy enough, in theory, to purchase every NFL franchise and quite a few in other leagues.
His fortune had dwindled from an estimated $40 billion back then to an estimated $10.5 billion in 2009, but that figure improved to $13.5 billion in the latest Forbes magazine rankings.
The chart breaks down where Allen has stood in the rankings since 2007.
Rams minority owner Stan Kroenke ranks 342nd at an estimated $2.9 billion. The Dolphins' owner, Stephen Ross, ranks 277th at $3.4 billion.
