    A couple good weekends at the track in the 30s, mostly.

    Well, that and inheriting a team that went from being worth $2,500 to billions in the span of a couple generations.

    Just what I could round up from the internet:

    AFC East:

    Buffalo Bills - Terrance (and Kim) Pegula: Natural gas, oil, and other investments.

    Miami Dolphins - Stephen Ross: Tax attorney turned real estate developer.

    New England Patriots - Robert Kraft: Founded International Forest Products. Currently owns various businesses held under "The Kraft Group". Does not own Kraft Foods (Kraft Heinz).

    NY Jets - Woody and Christopher Johnson, great-grandsons of Johnson & Johnson co-founder, Robert Johnson.


    AFC North:
    Cincinnati Bengals - Mike Brown, son of team founder, Paul Brown.

    Cleveland Browns - Jimmy Haslam, CEO of Pilot Flying J and son of Pilot Corporation founder, Jim Haslam.

    Baltimore Ravens - Steve Bisciotti, founder of Aerotek and cofounder of Allegis Group.

    Pittsburgh Steelers - Art Rooney II, grandson of team founder, Art Rooney.

    AFC South:
    Houston Texans - Bob McNair: Founded energy company Cogen Technologies, chairs a real estate firm, and owns an investment company.

    Indianapolis Colts - Jim Irsay: Son of Robert Irsay, who interestingly bought the LA Rams then traded for the Baltimore Colts in the same day.

    Jacksonville Jaguars - Sahid Khan: Founded Bumper Works, then bought Flex-N-Gate.

    Tennessee Titans - KSA (Bud Adams) founded team in the AFL as the Houston Oilers. Made money in oil.

    NFC East:
    Dallas Cowboys - Jerry Jones: Founded Jones Oil and Land Lease.

    NY Giants - John Mara: Grandson of team founder, Tim Mara; Steve Tisch film producer.

    Philadelphia Eagles - Jeffrey (and Christina) Lurie: Film producer and (former?) executive at Harcourt General. Grandfather founded General Cinema, which his uncle turned into a massive conglomerate.

    Washington Redskins - Dan Snyder: Entrepreneur. Made his first million selling spring break trips to Florida after dropping out of college.

    NFC North:
    Chicago Bears - Virginia McCaskey: Daughter of team founder, George Halas.

    Detroit Lions - Martha Ford: Daughter of Harvey Firestone Jr., chairman of the board at Firestone Tire. Married Henry Ford's grandson, William, who became sole owner of the team in 1963.

    Minnesota Vikings - Zygi Wilf: Former attorney turned real estate developer. Turned family business into a large real estate company.

    Green Bay Packer - Green Bay Packers, Inc.: Collection of over 360k stockholders. Mark Murphy is chairman.

    NFC South:
    Atlanta Falcons - Author Blank: Co-founder of The Home Depot.

    Carolina Panthers - David Tepper: Founded Appaloosa Management.

    New Orleans Saints - Gayle Benson (formerly Tom Benson). Tom Benson started out working in a car dealership, eventually coming to own several of his own. Made most of his money investing in banks.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Glazer Family. Heirs of Malcom Glazer, who purchased the team in 1995.


    So, it's a mix of self-made businessmen, family ownership, heirs to large corporations, and Packers fans.

    Edit: Forgot to the the AFC and NFC West, but I think the picture is pretty clear.
