  • Rams are NFL's sixth most valuable franchise at $3 billion

The Dallas Cowboys are once again the National Football League's most valuable team, according to an annual list complied by Forbes Magazine.

Five years ago, the Cowboys were the lone franchise worth $2 billion, and now all but five of the NFL's 32 teams are at least worth $2 billion, Forbes found. The league owes this success to new stadium investments, stadium renovations and exuberating rights fees. Current owner Jerry Jones paid a reported $140 million to purchase the team in 1989. The only organizations that increased their value less than the Lions did in the past year are the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans, which each went up 2 percent. With Mercedes-Benz Stadium opening this season, the Atlanta Falcons had the biggest year-to-year jump from 2016 to 2017.

Here's a look at the list of the NFL's most valuable franchises.

Despite rough times the last few years, the team is still one of the most valuable in all of sports.

Globally, according to Forbes' rankings of July, the Cowboys are followed by baseball's New York Yankees at $3.7 billion, a figure the Patriots have tied. Behind these teams we have European soccer giants - Manchester United, $3.69 billion; FC Barcelona, $3.64 billion; Real Madrid, $3.58 billion.
