Lurie's worth still at $1 billion

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie remains in the billionaires club, according to Forbes' annual rankings of the richest people in the world.

Lurie's net worth is reported as $1 billion, putting him among the 1,210 billionaires in the world (the largest number in the history of the study). Those 1,210 are worth a total of $4.5 trillion, in case you were wondering.

Lurie is tied for 1,140 on the world list this year. Last March, he was tied for No. 937.

Last fall, the 59-year-old Lurie was also on Forbes' list of the 400 richest Americans in a tie at No. 385. He is now No. 411.

Among those listed who are categorized as their primary business largely being related to professional sports, Lurie is tied for 14th. 

Seahawks owner Paul Allen is listed as the richest among NFL owners at No. 37 overall with a net worth of $13.5 billion. Of course, Microsoft is largely the reason for that.
