In its annual listing of the value of NFL franchises, Forbes has listed the New York Giants as the fourth-most valuable franchise among the 32 NFL teams. Per Forbes, the Giants are valued at $2.1 billion. Forbes says:
Even with $40 million annual payments to service stadium debt, the Giants have made a killing since MetLife Stadium opened in 2010.
So, the fact that the Giants haven't made the playoffs since winning the Super Bowl in the 2011 season certainly is not hurting the corporate bottom line. The Mara and Tisch families are still awash in money.
Forbes lists the Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots and Washington Redskins as the three most valuable NFL franchises. The Cowboys, per Forbes, have been the league's most valuable franchise for eight years running and their current value of $3.2 billion.
The least valuable NFL team? The poor, down-trodden St. Louis Rams are worth only a paltry $930 million, according to Forbes.
