Jerry Jones acquired the Dallas Cowboys in 1989, and since then he has turned the team into the most valuable sports franchise in the world. Just don’t expect him to make money on the investment any time soon.
The Denver Broncos are currently up for sale, and most estimates have been the team will be sold for about $ 5 billion when the transaction is completed. Peter King of NBC Sports asked Jones about this and what it means for Cowboys. Forbes says Cowboys is the most valuable franchise in the sport They are estimated to cost $ 6.5 billion. Jones believes the figure is much, much higher.
One NFL business consultant told King he estimates Jones could get about $ 8 billion if he tried to sell cowboys. Jones said he believes the team is worth “more than $ 10 billion,” but he has no plans to sell – ever.
“But let me show it,” Jones said. “I will say this categorically. I will never do that. I will never sell cowboys. Someday. “
Jones 79. The decision to sell the Cowboys won’t be behind him forever, but his family is just as invested in the day-to-day running of the team as he is. Owning Cowboys is not just about making money for the Jones family. They love football, so we’ll be surprised if they give it up. This, of course, will not happen in Jerry’s lifetime.
