Annual update.

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Every year, Forbes puts out a list of the top 50 most valuable sports teams. The Philadelphia Eagles made the cut once again in 2019.

Forbes estimates the Eagles to be valued at $2.75 billion, which is a 4% increase from last year’s $2.5 billion figure. Recall that Jeffrey Lurie originally purchased the franchise in 1994 for a mere $185 million.

The Eagles’ current valuation makes them the 24th most valuable sports franchise in the world. That’s a two spot drop from last year when they were 22nd. They’re still the 10th most valuable NFL franchise, however.

Top 10 list:

1 - Dallas Cowboys - 1st overall, $5 billion, 4% increase

2 - New England Patriots - 7th overall, $3.8 billion, 3% increase

3 - New York Giants - tied for 10th overall, $3.3 billion, 0% increase

4 - Los Angeles Rams - tied for 12th overall, $3.2 billion, 7% increase

5 - Washington - tied for 14th overall, $3.1 billion, 0% increase

6 - San Francicso 49ers - 16th overall, $3.05 billion, 0% increase

7 - Chicago Bears - tied for 19th overall, $2.9 billion, 2% increase

8 - New York Jets - 21st overall, $2.85 billion, 4% increase

9 - Houston Texans - tied for 22nd overall, $2.8 billion, 0% increase

10 - Philadelphia Eagles - 24th overall, $2.75 billion, 4% increase
