Forbes has released this years edition of their NFL franchise evaluations and it may surprise you where the Seattle Seahawks rank.
Coming off of their first Super Bowl championship by humiliating a Denver Broncos team led by Peyton Manning, arguable the greatest quarterback to play in the NFL – As well as owning one of the best fanbases in all of sports, a middle-of-the-pack ranking doesn’t seem justifiable.
That’s exactly where Paul Allen’s Seahawks rank. 15th among the 32 NFL franchises. Allen is the wealthiest owner in the NFL and the Seahawks do play in a relatively still new CenturyLink Field. Seahawks games constantly sellout and ticket and concession prices continue to go up.
Paul Allen purchased the Seahawks in 1997 for $197M. The teams current valuation stands at 1.3B. Again, good for 15th among the 32 total teams that form the NFL.
