The Dallas Cowboys have been owned by the enigmatic Jerry Jones since his purchase of the franchise for $140 million from team owner and friend H.R. “Bum” Bright. Of course, the team is worth a bit more these days. 

The Cowboys are currently valued at a cool $8 billion, making them the most valuable sports franchise not only in the NFL, but in the entire world. And if Jones wanted to sell the team, he believes that he could net an even larger return. In fact, Jones believes that the Cowboys are worth up to $10 billion! 

And once again, the Cowboys have made financial history. According to a new report from CBS Sports, they're the only team to make over a billion dollars in profit over a three year period.
