Quick quiz: Take a wild guess as to which owner is actually spending nearly $167 million in committed cash in 2012? Here's a hint -- Dan Snyder, Jerry Jones and Paul Allen aren't anywhere close.
Answer: Tom Benson. Yep, in the year of "Bountygate" and with all the tumult the Saints have been through, including fines and suspended coaches, New Orleans is spending a third over the cap ($40M-plus over), and nearly $30 million more than the next-highest team.
Quiz No. 2: Go ahead and guess which owner is second behind Benson. Hint: It's someone else, like Benson, who for years was labeled as being too frugal for his own good.
Answer: None other than Ralph Wilson. Yes, two guys who have been the subject of speculation in the past about franchise relocation are spending more than anyone else in the billionaires club of NFL owners. Whodathunk it?
