Kroenke himself is forced to pay $571 million for taking the franchise to St. Louis. All 32 NFL teams also must pay $7.5 million to make up the $219 million difference.

Information released from St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones' office says the city will receive $250 million and St. Louis County $169 million and the Regional Sports Authority gets $70 million. The City of St. Louis is able to obtain $30 million more contingent on the City Board of Aldermen using it for convention center expansion.

After attorney fees, there was $519 million left from the initial $790 million to split for the plaintiffs. This included $6 million of funds accrued in interest.

It should be noted the Regional Sports Authority still has to approve the deal.
