Despite 10 years without a playoff appearance, the New York Jets’ value continues to increase.
Forbes recently released its annual list, which highlights the world’s 50 most valuable teams. The Jets find themselves tied with the Chicago Bulls and Cubs for 17th on Forbes’ list, valued at $3.2 billion. That puts New York as the eighth-most valuable franchise in the NFL, which holds 27 spots on the list.
Forbes had the Jets valued at $2.85 billion in 2019. In the span of a year, Gang Green has seen its value increase by over 5 percent.
The Jets are valued higher than the Texans, Eagles, Broncos, Packers, Steelers and Seahawks, among others. These are multiple teams that have had sustained success, many of whom have won Super Bowls recently.
New York’s valuation just goes to show that, even without results, New York is one of the most profitable markets in the entire world
