Report: Jeffrey Lurie Retains ‘Full Control’ of Eagles
The terms of Jeffrey Lurie‘s divorce settlement ensure he will retain full control over the Eagles, per Albert Breer of the NFL Network.
According to Breer, the New York Post report suggesting Christina Lurie would receive a “sizeable chunk” of the team was overstated.
A senior NFL official with direct knowledge of the settlement and Eagles ownership structure said that Lurie’s ex-wife Christina owns only a small, non-voting share of the team, similar to those owned by Lurie partners Mike Michelson and Richard Green.
Lurie remains the only person with voting stock or management authority over the Eagles, according to sources, and owns a far greater percentage of his team than most NFL owners.
“There is no doubt who will own or control the Eagles going forward, and that is Jeffrey,” said the senior official in an email. “Jeffrey is only 60 and will remain in control for decades. In fact, we think the Eagles will be in the Lurie family for generations because Jeffrey has been very thoughtful in how he has structured his affairs.”
