Forbes Says Dallas Cowboys Most Valuable Team In NFL, Worth $4.2B

NEW YORK (AP) – Not only are the Dallas Cowboys the most valuable team in the NFL, they are worth more than any franchise in sports.

Forbes’s NFL valuations show the Cowboys worth $4.2 billion, easily topping the league for the 10th straight year. Next closest are the New England Patriots at $3.4 billion.

Earlier this year, Forbes cited Jerry Jones’ team as the world’s most valuable franchise.

The average NFL team is worth $2.34 billion, a 19 percent increase over last year. That increase is primarily due to more rights fees for Thursday night games, the Rams’ relocation from St. Louis to Los Angeles, the Vikings moving into their new stadium in Minneapolis and the Atlanta Falcons nearing completion of their new stadium.

  1. The Cowboys need to dumb down their plays, so that everybody knows when they need to get off to the side line with the ball to stop the time. Would be great if they made the game tickets, and parking affordable to the average person. Still can’t win the Super Bowl, don’t know why the tickets cost so much? This season already similar to the last season.
