Houston Texans rank #9 on Forbes' 2016 most valuable NFL teams list
The Houston Texans have moved from #7 to #9 on Forbes' 2016 list of most valuable NFL teams.
The 2016 list was released on Wednesday, and the Texans were ranked #9 on the list, with a value of $2.6 billion.
The change in rank on the list does not mean that the Texans have lost value; instead, there was a gain of $100 million from 2015.
Sport, market, stadium and brand are all taken into consideration when determining the value of each team. The Texans' 14 consecutive sold-out seasons are the most by any professional sports team in Houston history.
According to Forbes, the revenue of the Texans for 2016 is $416 million with an operating income of $129 million.
The following are the Forbes top 10 most valuable teams in 2016:
Dallas Cowboys - $4.2 billion New England Patriots - $3.4 billion New York Giants - $3.1 billion San Francisco 49ers - $3 billion Washington Redskins - $2.95 billion Los Angeles Rams - $2.9 billion New York Jets - $2.75 billion Chicago Bears - $2.7 billion Houston Texans - $2.6 billion Philadelphia Eagles - $2.5 billion Forbes contributes new stadiums and relocation as driving factors to explain why the NFL values are 19 percent higher this year. As for the Texans, the team value increased by 4 percent from last year.
The individual NFL team values for 2016 average around $2.34 billion.
