On Wednesday, Forbes released their list of the World’s 50 Most Valuable Sports Teams in 2014 – and one of Cleveland’s franchises made the cut.
The Cleveland Browns ranked 35th on the list, coming in at an estimated value of $1.005 billion.
No surprise, the article made mention of the Browns’ selection of Johnny Manziel in the 2014 NFL Draft.
“The Browns hope first round pick Johnny Manziel can turn around a franchise that has lost at least 10 games in 10 of the past 11 seasons,” Forbes wrote.
Manziel could hold the key to moving the Browns higher up the list in 2015. The merchandise he moves and the attention he will bring to Cleveland should certainly help.
But can he actually play?
Additionally, it should be interesting to note what type of future impact LeBron James’ return will have upon the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Forbes’ top five of 2014:
1. Real Madrid - $3.44 billion
2. Barcelona - $3.2 billion
3. Manchester United - $2.81 billion
4. New York Yankees - $2.5 billion
5. Dallas Cowboys - $2.3 billion
