Hall of Famer?

Does Jerry Richardson get in at some point?

Super Bowl winner and first former player to own a team; first owner to draw a pie chart on live TV; catatonically took in Panther games from his suite...

Pretty sure he wasn't the first former player to own a team, just the latest.

And boooooo for the clickbait.

Unless you count George Halas, who was owner/coach/player for the Decatur Staley, which later went on to become the Chicago Bears, Richardson is the only former player to own an NFL franchise.

Halas would have been first though.

Technically he played for a team before there was an NFL, and after his playing days he was the owner of an NFL franchise. And, having been to the HOF, I can tell you the NFL claims a lot of football history to be their own long before there was an NFL.

His wiki page says that the NFL officially got its name in 1922, and Halas played several years for his Bears team after the 1922 season before retiring.
