ESPN the Magazine: Redskins 70th best paying team in the world (best paying team in the NFL)


Recommended Posts

Got the new issue of ESPN the Mag in the mail yesterday, and they have a section on "The 100 best-paying teams in the world" based on the average annual salary per player.

The Redskins ranked 70th, at $2,913,048 per year per player.

The Saints were the second highest in the NFL (74th overall), at $2,845,831 per year per player.

The Cowboys came in at 82nd overall, at $2,679,093 per year per player.

Not surprisingly the top two teams were Barcelona ($7,910,737) and Real Madrid ($7,356,632). The Yankees were third ($6,756,301) followed closely by the Lakers ($6,540,690).

A couple interesting points...

The Heat ($3,439,822) were one spot ahead of the Cavaliers ($3,438,187), and Orioles were ahead of the Skins, and the Caps came in riding the 100 spot.

The salaries exclude endorsements, bonuses, and any other "extra" compensation.
