Raiders one of two NFL teams not in Forbes top 50 most valuable sports teams

Last year, there were 30 NFL teams in the Forbes top 50 most valuable franchises. This year, the results are the same. The difference this year is the Raiders aren't one of them.

Last year, the Raiders got into the top 50 by the skin of their teeth. They were ranked #50 with a net worth of $785 million. This year, their worth raised to $825 million but it wasn't enough. The only other NFL team not to make the list is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Their worth is figured at $840 million which means the Raiders are now considered to be the least valuable franchise in the NFL.

Here is the entire list of NFL teams in the top 50:

5. Dallas Cowboys - $2.3 billion
8. New England Patriots - $1.8 billion
9. Washington Redskins - $1.7 billion
10. New York Giants - $1.55 billion
12. Houston Texans - $1.45 billion
14. New York Jets - $1.38 billion
17. Philadelphia Eagles - $1.314 billion
18. Chicago Bears - $1.252 billion
19. Baltimore Ravens - $1.227 billion
20. San Francisco 49ers - $1.224 billion
21. Indianapolis Colts - $1.2 billion
24. Green Bay Packers - $1.183 billion
25. Denver Broncos - $1.161 billion
27. Pittsburgh Steelers - $1.118 billion
28. Seattle Seahawks - $1.081 billion
29. Miami Dolphins - $1.074 billion
30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - $1.067 billion
31. Carolina Panthers - $1.057 billion
32. Tennessee Titans - $1.055 billion
33. Kansas City Chiefs - $1.009 billion
34. Minnesota Vikings - $1.007 billion
35. Cleveland Browns - $1.005 billion
36. New Orleans Saints - $1.004 billion
40. Arizona Cardinals - $961 million
41. San Diego Chargers - $949 million
42. Atlanta Falcons - $933 million
43. Cincinnati Bengals - $924 million
44. Detroit Lions - $900 million
45. St Louis Rams - $875 million
47. Buffalo Bills - $870 million
??. Jacksonville Jaguars - $840 million
??. Oakland Raiders - $825 million

So, according to these figures, they're saying a prospective buyer would pay more than twice as much to purchase the Washington Racial Slurs, and nearly THREE TIMES as much for the Dallas Jerry Joneses? That's craziness.
