Forbes released its valuations of the top 50 sports franchises in the world. Spanish soccer club Real Madrid came in at No. 1 on the list valued at $3.44 billion. The Philadelphia Eagles came in at No. 17 on the list valued at $1.314 billion.
The NFC East was the most valuable decision in the NFL with the Cowboys (No. 5 - $2.3 billion), Redskins (No. 9 - $1.7 billion) and Giants (No. 10 - $1.55 billion) all valued higher than the Eagles. The only other NFL teams outside the NFC East valued higher than the Eagles were the Patriots (No. 8 - $1.8 billion), Texans (No. 12 - $1.45 billion) and Jets (No. 14 - $1.38 billion).
This isn't bad and I'm sure Lurie is loving this as he bought the team from Norman Braman in May 1994 for a cool $195 million.
