It’s being rumored that the NFL’s oldest owners are keen on winning a Super Bowl before making a terrestrial exit so they’re looking to break the bank in an attempt to witness glory while they’re still here.
The MLFootball Twitter account is reporting as much with claims that, having spoken to some of the top agents in the league, the notion is that the likes of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones are going to be aggressive in free agency as they’re desperate to win another championship.
Also named are Arthur Blank, who owns the Atlanta Falcons, and Stephen Ross, the owner of the Miami Dolphins.
Kraft is 81 years old right now and saw much success in the Tom Brady years as he watched his team win six Super Bowls. Jones, 80, has won three as an owner. The 80-year-old Blank is yet to win a Super Bowl, but his Falcons have been to the dance twice.
Meanwhile, the Dolphins have two Super Bowl wins to their names but didn’t win any of them with Ross as their owner. Ross turns 83 in May.
They have already made their first big move of the offseason, agreeing to a trade for star cornerback Jalen Ramsey over the weekend.
Who Are The Oldest Owners In The NFL?
Believe it or not, the owners noted above aren’t the oldest in the NFL. Virginia Halas McCaskey, who owns the Chicago Bears, celebrated her 100th birthday in January while Cincinnati Bengals owner Mike Brown is 87 years old.
Houston Texas co-owner Janice McNair will also turn 87 this September.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
