Forbes magazine just came out with its revised list of NFL franchise values. Our own Seattle Seahawks? One billion dollars.
That may seem pricey for a 7-9 team, but at number 17 on the list the Seahawks actually rank right near the middle of the pack. The lowest valued team is the Jacksonville Jaguars at a paltry $770 million; the highest valued is of course the Dallas Cowboys at a cool $2.1 billion.
And in case you weren't paying attention, the $35.4 billion worth of NFL teams kick off their 2012 season tonight with the aforementioned Cowboys playing at the home of the $1.5 billion New York Giants.
