Robert McNair, owner of the Houston Texans and founder of power company Cogen Technologies, was the most generous NFL owner among Trump’s donors, with $3.5 million in gifts to the inaugural committee, Trump Victory, and Great America, a super-PAC that supported Trump. McNair echoed other owners in a statement calling Trump’s comments “divisive and counterproductive.”

Stan Kroenke of the Los Angeles Rams, Daniel Snyder of the Washington Redskins, Robert Kraft of the New England Patriots, and Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys joined Johnson and Khan in making $1 million gifts to Trump’s inaugural fund. Kraft’s gift came through the Kraft Group, a holding company for the family’s businesses, while Jones gave through Glenstone LP, a company that shares an address with the Cowboys and other of his businesses.

Jim Haslam of the Cleveland Browns and Edward Glazer of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers round out the list of Trump donors. (Glazer also made a small contribution to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.)

It’s not known whether any of those owners have also given to America First Policies, the pro-Trump nonprofit that launched ads on Sunday urging Trump-supporting football fans to "Turn off the NFL." It isn’t required to disclose its donors.
