List Rules Only people who currently own NFL teams

The best current NFL owners are those dedicated and filthy rich businessmen and women who have done the best for their teams, the fans, and the National Football League in general during their ownership of the 32 NFL teams. Being a good owner is more than just writing checks and these top NFL owners set the bar high with their solid leadership.

Regardless of which of the greatest NFL teams fans follow, many would agree that Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, is the best owner in the NFL. Between his tenacity to see his team succeed, his ongoing philanthropy and special efforts to help end the NFL lockout in 2011, Robert Kraft has set the gold standard to NFL team ownership and has earned the respect of the league for it.

That's not to say there are not other great NFL team owners in the league as well. John Mara and Steve Tisch of the New York Giants, Dan Rooney of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Steve Bisciotti of the Baltimore Ravens are others frequently in the conversation of the top current NFL team owners. Even the fans get credit for being great owners, in the case of the Green Bay Packers that is. Officially owned by Green Bay Packers, Inc., the team is owned by over 350,000 shareholders, many of which are in the stands sporting cheeseheads each Sunday.

Having already achieved great things, these best NFL team owners are destined to be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Tell us which 2016-2017 NFL owners you respect the most by voting for your favorites or re-ranking this list of the best NFL team owners below.
