Forbes values Jaguars at $2.075 billion, up 32 percent

Forbes values Jaguars at $2.075 billion, up 32 percent

New York's two National Football League teams were underperformers this year in a list of valuations released by Forbes magazine on Monday.

The Lions' $1.7 billion value is a 3-percent increase over the year before.

Forbes released its annual list of the NFL's most valuable franchises on Monday, and there's no surprise as to which team is at the top of the list. Current owner Jerry Jones paid a reported $140 million to purchase the team in 1989. Considering that they are ahead of New England Patriots ($3.7 billion) for more than $1 billion we'd say that this comes as a major success of the whole franchise.

The Miami Dolphins ranked #12 with a value of $2.575 billion and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were ranked #28 at $1.975 billion, according to Forbes. That's more than double (an inflation adjusted $1.1 billion) what the teams were worth in 2007, the first full year under Roger Goodell's leadership. With Mercedes-Benz Stadium opening this season, the Atlanta Falcons had the biggest year-to-year jump from 2016 to 2017.
