Dallas Cowboys Richest NFL Team at $2.3 Billion, Still Can’t Make Playoffs
The Dallas Cowboys may not rake in the wins so much anymore, but they sure do rake in the money.
The Cowboys, who have won two playoff games in the last 17 years (and failed to make the postseason in 2012), have come out on top of Forbes’ list of valuable NFL teams. The Cowboys are worth $2.3 billion, making it the seventh consecutive year they have finished first on the list. With like that, it seems America's Team is more like Bank of America's Team.
The New England Patriots took the second spot, with a value of $1.8 billion. The Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens landed at number nine with $1.227 billion. The Oakland Raiders finished all the way at the bottom at $825 million.
If you get the chance to cobble together a few hundred million dollars worth of coins in your couch cushions, you should strongly consider buying an NFL franchise: the average team is worth $1.17 billion, way ahead of the averages for the other major pro sports in the US: Major League Baseball ($744 million), NBA ($509 million) and NHL ($282 million).
