The wealth and fortunes of the NFL are being discussed all over the world, and the most recent report from Forbes says the Cleveland Browns have the largest wealth in the league.
The Browns have a wealth of $14.5 billion, and Forbes ranked the Browns at number four in the NFL.
According to the report, the Browns own a total of $10 billion in assets and have a net worth of $19.5 million.
The league’s top five NFL teams have an average net worth, and only the Oakland Raiders have a smaller average net value than the Browns.
According to Forbes, the median annual net worth for the NFL is $1.4 million, and it’s estimated that at least $8 billion in annual revenue is generated by the league’s 15 teams.
The report also says that the Browns have one of the richest owners in the game, owner Jimmy Haslam.
Forbes ranked him as the sixth richest person in the world.
Haslam owns the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Cleveland Indians, the Miami Dolphins, and most recently the Miami Marlins.
The Dolphins were acquired by Miami from the Florida Panthers in 2018 for a reported $2.5 to $2 billion.
Haslam has since said that he’s willing to sell the team for $200 million to get his personal money back, but the league has not officially announced a sale.
The report says that Forbes estimates that the average net income for the NBA is $3.5 trillion, and $3 billion of that income is generated from teams that are owned by the owners.
Forbes estimates the NBA’s average income to be around $6 billion, so Forbes estimates an average NFL team’s income to top $11 billion annually.
The Browns have been in the spotlight for their financial troubles in recent years.
According of Forbes, Cleveland has had one of America’s worst football seasons in recent memory.
In 2019, the team finished last in the AFC North with a 10-29 record, and this season, the franchise finished last with a 27-36 record.
This year’s NFL season is scheduled to begin on September 16.
