Forbes recently ranked the 50 most valuable sports franchises in the world, and the Jacksonville Jaguars fell 47th on the list, but the team ranked dead last (32nd) in the NFL. Forbes estimated that the team is currently worth $725 million. Even though Shahid Khan paid $760 million for the team when he purchased the franchise in January, he still stands to gain big from the acquisition.
All NFL teams are not created equal, but Shahid Khan got himself a deal when he purchased a coveted franchise for only $760 million, even if the team is currently valued at just $725 million. The NFL is still a growing brand, and it's hard to imagine any NFL teams dropping in value. While the Jaguars are a small market team, Northern Florida is a very attractive place to grow a brand, and it's a fact that Khan hopes to exploit in the coming years.
