On Monday, Forbes released its annual list of the 50 most valuable sports teams. Once again, the Detroit Lions were ranked in the 30s. This year, they actually dropped from 36th to 38th, but their value increased from $817 million to $844 million. The Lions were valued at $867 million back in 2010, so their worth is once again on the rise.
Amazingly, all 32 NFL teams again made the list. Below is a look at how the NFL teams were ranked and where they came in on the general sports list.
1. Cowboys ($1.85 billion) - 3rd
17. 49ers ($990 million) - 26th
After being 27th a year ago, the Lions moved up to 26th by passing the Falcons and staying ahead of the Vikings, Bills, Rams, Raiders and Jaguars.
As usual, the Lions were the only Detroit sports team that made the list.
