Tampa Bay Buccaneers Just Below Average NFL Value, According to Forbes

Earlier today, Forbes released their list on the most valuable teams in the NFL. And while the Dallas Cowboys came in the top spot with a staggering value of $3.2 billionthe most of any U.S. sports teamyou’re here on The Pewter Plank to find out one thing: where did the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rank? With the average team in the league worth $1.43 billion, the Bucs were just below that mark, coming in at #18 with a value of $1.225 billion. The publication broke down their findings further, revealing that the Buccaneers had a 2013 revenue of $275 million with a $46 million operating income in the same year.

With the Bucs gearing up for a 2014 campaign with a new head coach in Lovie Smith and some young, exciting talent in guys like wide receiver Mike Evans, the franchise should see a sizable increase in their team value when Forbes releases their list next year. Especially when you factor in the Bucs’ eight-game losing streak to start the season and their 4-12 overall record.
