Forbes Values Bears At $2.85 Billion


The average team is now worth $2.52 billion, according to Forbes.

Despite a Super Bowl hangover that the Carolina Panthers couldn't quite shake last season, the team's net worth has surged to $2.3 billion.

Here's a look at the list of the NFL's most valuable franchises.

The Dallas Cowboys' worth has risen to $4.8billion, making them the NFL's most valuable franchise for the 11th straight year, according to Forbes' annual rankings released on Monday. That's an increase of 37 percent from 2015 ($1.53 billion) and 12 percent over the 2016 value ($1.88 billion).


Every NFL team is worth at least $1 billion, with the Buffalo Bills last at $1.6 billion. That's more than US$1 billion ahead of the New England Patriots (US$3.7 billion).

The other team in Los Angeles, the Chargers, received a small lift with their move to Los Angeles, going from $2.08 billion to $2.275 billion in the past year. Forbes reported earlier this year that the average baseball franchise is worth $1.54 billion. Since moving from San Diego, the team's value has gone from $2.08 billion to $2.275 billion.

2013: $840 million (31st of 32 teams). As a whole, the National Football League earned $3.2 billion in total income - substantially more than earnings of every NBA, MLB and NHL team combined, the financial publication noted.
