• Forbes: Jacksonville Jaguars are worth over $2 billion

    Updated:

    A article published by Forbes on Monday said that the value of the Jacksonville Jaguars has risen to $2.075 billion. 

    Owner Shad Kahn bought the team in 2011 for a reported $760 million. 

    The value of the Jaguars is up 4 percent in the last year and had an operating income of $89 million, Forbes said.

    They are now the 25th most valuable franchise in NFL, ahead of larger-market teams like the Tennessee Titans ($2.05 billion) and Detroit Lions ($1.8 billion). 

    Not surprisingly, the Dallas Cowboys are No. 1 at $4.8 billion. Owner Jerry Jones bought the franchise in 1989 for just under $150 million.
