Jerry Jones: Haters Have Increased Value Of Cowboys

Sep 22, 2015 7:17 PM

Jerry Jones believes the criticism he and the Dallas Cowboys have received during his ownership tenure has increased the value of the franchise.

"I must tell you that the negative part of that isn't enough to keep me awake at night," Jones said. "And there is no doubt in 25 years with the Dallas Cowboys that the criticism of me individually, the criticism of our franchise, the criticism of our activity has enhanced not only the value but the attractiveness of what we have done.

"Apathy would be my nightmare."

The Cowboys are now the most valuable franchise in professional sports.

Terrell Owens' Agent Reaches Out To Cowboys

Sep 22, 2015 1:30 PM

Terrell Owens had his agent reach out to the Dallas Cowboys about returning to the NFL following the injury to Dez Bryant.

Owens is 41 and hasn't played in the NFL since the 2012 preseason.

“I’m not sure what the situation is,” Owens said. “My name may have come up in discussion as far as bringing me in. But again, a lot of people are going to factor in my age as far as why I can’t play.”

Owens said he feels he’d be a “viable” option for the team given a week or so to round into form.

Cowboys Ranked Most Valuable Team In Sports At $4 Billion

Sep 14, 2015 11:13 AM

The Dallas Cowboys are now the most valuable franchise in professional sports, as Forbes estimates their worth at $4 billion.

Jerry Jones bought the team in February 1989 from H.R. "Bum" Bright for $140 million. Factoring for inflation, the value of the Cowboys has since jumped 1,382 percent based on Forbes' new valuation.

Rounding out the top five most valuable NFL teams are the New England Patriots ($3.2 billion), Washington Redskins ($2.85 billion), New York Giants ($2.8 billion) and San Francisco 49ers ($2.7 billion).

The average NFL franchise is now worth $2 billion, a 38 percent year-over-year increase due to the increase in national television rights fees.
