The San Francisco 49ers haven’t done much winning over the past few years, but that hasn’t hurt the value of the franchise. Forbes puts out an annual list of the most valuable teams in all of sports every year, and the Niners are still among the ten most valuable teams in the NFL.
Forbes valued the Niners as a $3.05 billion franchise, which is the same as a year ago. That puts the team sixth in the NFL, and 16th in all of sports. Here’s a look at the top teams in the NFL:
