Powerball $1.5 Billion Jackpot Winner Is Richer Than These NFL Owners

California lottery officials reported Wednesday night that the winning Powerball ticket was, in fact, sold, which means someone out there just joined the $1.5 billion club.

Of course, lottery officials could be wrong, there could be multiple winners, and the one confirmed winner still has to step forward and claim the prize. But if they do, just how rich would they be?

Here’s a handful of notable NFL owners whom said person immediately would be wealthier than, according to Forbes’ list of NFL owners ranked by their net worth.

— Jim Irsay, Indianapolis Colts, $1.5 billion
— William C. Ford, Sr., Detroit Lions, $1.25 billion
— Kenneth Adams, Tennessee Titans, $1.2 billion
— Tom Benson, New Orleans Saints, $1.2 billion
— Denise DeBartolo York, San Francisco 49ers, $1.1 billion
— Daniel Snyder, Washington Redskins, $1 billion
— Alex Spanos, San Diego Chargers, $1 billion

Pretty impressive, huh?

Of course, it still pales in comparison to some of the bigger names on the list, like Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen ($15 billion), the newly relocated Los Angeles Rams’ owner, Stan Kroenke, and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones ($2.7 billion).

But hey, we’d settle for the $1.5 billion any day.
