The NFL’s financial stability was in jeopardy during the height of the epidemic. But 2021 proved that this was only a prelude to the league’s fastest start to a prosperous year in a long time, with the market value of the NFL’s most valued franchises increasing proportionally.

The National Football League (NFL) increased its media rights agreement by 82% to an astounding $111.8 billion in March of 2021. This implies that the total payout to the 32 NFL franchises will climb from around $220 billion to almost $377 billion between now and 2032 when the contract expires.

It will be fascinating to see how team values evolve throughout this time frame over the following decade. Nevertheless, this is how the league stands as of 2022 between the most valuable and least valuable ten teams.

NFL’s top franchises by value

  • Dallas Cowboys: $7.64 billion
  • Los Angeles Rams: $5.91 billion
  • New England Patriots: $5.88 billion
  • New York Giants: $5.37 billion
  • San Francisco 49ers: $5.18 billion
  • Chicago Bears: $5 billion
  • New York Jets: $4.8 billion
  • Washington Commanders: $4.78 billion
  • Philadelphia Eagles: $4.7 billion
  • Denver Broncos: $4.65 billion

The Dallas Cowboys are still king

Despite the 25 year Super Bowl drought, Jerry Jones has basically been printing money since he bought the franchise in 1989 for $140 million. According to Forbes, the Cowboys generate $800 million in revenue per year. The NFL has seen each team increase in value by 14% over the past year, and have signed a new media deal last March worth $112.6 billion. But the biggest one-year increase in value belongs to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are up 29% and whose brand has been reborn with last season’s Super Bowl run. There has been a surge in season-ticket and merchandise sales since the arrival of Tom Brady in March 2020 and pushed through significant ticket-price increases for the 2021 season.
