Sportico’s financial estimates for each NFL came from “interviews with more than 30 bankers, lawyers, team officials, owners and consultants involved in the game, as well as public documents”.
The report found that the average NFL franchise is worth $4.1 billion, a healthy increase of 18 percent from 2021. A total of 16 NFL teams have an estimated value of $4 billion. To put this in perspective, there are only four NBA franchises and three MLB franchises that are worth at least $4 billion.

The Cincinnati Bengals, which most recently played in the Super Bowl, are the least-valued NFL franchise at $2.84 billion.
