Show me the money: Forbes releases NFL most valuable team list

·4 min read

Forbes released their annual NFL most valuable teams list for 2021.

That the Dallas Cowboys were once again the most valuable NFL franchise wasn’t a surprise, making it the 15th straight year.

The pie is expected to keep growing for the league as they signed a $111.8 billion in media rights. Television is still king for the NFL with their deals with ESPN, DirecTV (NFL Sunday Ticket). However, Amazon is starting to get a piece of the action as Amazon Prime will be the exclusive home for Thursday Night Football starting in 2022.

Here is a look at the most valuable teams in the NFL.
