Shad Khan is NFL's 5th richest owner

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars owner Shad Khan has a bit more free cash to send out the door than the previous owner Wayne Weaver did, but I'm not sure many fans realized just how much.

Forbes listed it's annual list of worldwide billionaires and 19 NFL owners make the list, including Jaguars' Khan.

The leader in the clubhouse is Seahawks owner Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, followed shortly after by Rams owner Stan Kroenke, then Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and Buccaneers owner Malcolm Glazer.

Khan rounds out the top five of the list tied with Giants co-owner Joan Tisch.

I'm not sure where Weaver would have ranked on this list, but I don't believe he was a billionaire.

So, queue the complaining about how Khan should spend all the money he has just because he has it!

On a serious note however, this is a big reason why the Jaguars locker rooms have been renovated to the state at which they are and why there is talks of an indoor practice facility in the works.
