Anyone who pulls on the uniform and runs onto the field has gotten there because of their hard work in college Darnell Savage Jr. Jersey , combine week, and endless practices. Coaches are fairly similar – they often need to prove their skills at a lower level for several years in colleges before making it up to the pros. Most people you see on or around the field in an NFL game have gotten there by proving they are skilled at whatever role they’re responsible for, whether it be quarterback or offensive coordinator.Team owners, however, are an entirely different story. You know who they are, even if you may not know every single owner’s name. The ones that the camera often pans to for a second, sitting in their box, watching the game. When their team wins big Elgton Jenkins Jersey , they get to rub the Lombardi and make a short speech. It’s a pretty cool deal, as far as investments go.While there are a few exceptions (mostly for the owners who have inherited their team), the majority of team owners tend to be fairly up there in years. It’s simple – it generally takes quite a while to bank the hundreds of millions required to buy an NFL team. The owners of the NFL’s biggest and best teams have made their money in oil, real estate, marketing, construction, franchises and much more. And, of course Jace Sternberger Jersey , that family money – many team owners inherited their fortunes, making it a far more attainable goal than for those who started from nothing.How on earth does someone make enough money to afford an NFL team? If you’ve ever asked yourself that question, then this is the list for you. Here’s how 20 NFL team owners made that dough. ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP)T.J. Lang’s favorite memories of Lambeau Field fit nicely with the stadium’s broader reputation. ”Those late-season games when it’s zero degrees outside and everybody’s freezing,” Lang said Thursday. ”I always took a great amount of joy in playing in those types of games, when the conditions are really, really bad. Just kind of makes it fun.” Games such as that are what Lambeau is famous for – and although it may be a bit early in the season for frigid, icy conditions when Lang and the Detroit Lions play at Green Bay on Monday night Dexter Williams Jersey , this will still be a significant moment for the veteran offensive lineman. Lang played eight seasons for the Packers before returning to his native Michigan this year and joining the Lions. ”Obviously, I played there for eight years. Made some great friendships there, great relationships with some people in Green Bay, and Lambeau is always a very special place for me and my family,” he said. Lang is plenty familiar with the Packers and their iconic stadium. He knows all about the team and the fans – and the turf that could occasionally cause players to slip. He started 94 games for Green Bay, and Packers coach Mike McCarthy still thinks highly of him. ”T.J. is playing good. I don’t like the colors he’s wearing, but he looks good out there,” McCarthy said. ”Frankly Rock Ya-Sin Jersey , in our breakdown with the personnel department and as a coaching staff, we feel he’s their best lineman and he’s having a good year.” It remains to be seen whether Lang will be welcomed back by the Green Bay fans or treated as just another opposing player. ”I don’t think it was a relationship that ended on bad terms – certainly not from my end,” Lang said. ”But you never know with fans. Obviously a division rival, they kind of forget pretty quick how long a guy played there. It is what it is. I don’t look for cheers, boos, it doesn’t matter to me. It’s not going to affect my mindset.” The Lions signed Lang this past offseason, bringing him back to the Detroit area where he was born. He played college football at Eastern Michigan but had spent his entire pro career with the Packers after being drafted by them in the fourth round in 2009. So there’s loyalty to both places, even if there’s no doubt which side Lang is on at the moment. ”I think the whole pregame might be a little different http://www.clevelandbrownsteamonline.com/anthony-zettel-jersey , being on the opposing sideline, but … I’ve never been a guy that really gets enamored with the crowd and the noise,” Lang said. ”Just go out there and you focus on doing your job. But I’d be foolish to say that Green Bay wasn’t special for me.” NOTES: OL Taylor Decker, who has not played this season because of a shoulder injury, has resumed practicing. Coach Jim Caldwell was asked if Decker might be able to play Monday. ”We’ll see. I’m not putting any limitations on it,” Caldwell said. ”It could be two weeks from now. It could be three weeks from now. We’ll see.” … WR Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and T Greg Robinson (ankle) did not practice Thursday. T Emmett Cleary (ankle) participated in a full practice after missing last weekend’s loss to Pittsburgh . —
