The top three teams are from soccer: Real Madrid, $3.3 billion; Manchester United, $3.17 billion; and Barcelona, $2.6 billion.

Baseball’s New York Yankees come in fourth, and tops among all North American teams, with a value of $2.3 billion, followed by the Cowboys at $2.1 billion.

The rest of the top 10 are: New England Patriots ($1.64 billion), Los Angeles Dodgers ($1.62 billion), Washington Redskins ($1.6 billion), New York Giants ($1.47 billion) and Arsenal of the English Premier League ($1.33 billion).

Thirty of the NFL’s 32 teams made the top 50, with the average value being $1.24 billion.


• Ravens: Linebacker Ray Lewis, who retired following the Super Bowl after playing 17 seasons with the Ravens, will be enshrined in the team’s Ring of Honor at halftime of the Sept. 22 game against the Houston Texans.

• Redskins: Tight end Chris Cooley joined Washington’s radio broadcasting team Tuesday, ending his nine-year NFL career. Cooley, 31, was released in training camp prior to last season, but was re-signed after a season-ending injury to Fred Davis.

• Cowboys: The team worked out quarterbacks Chase Clement, formerly of Rice, Southlake Carroll graduate Kyle Padron and Alex Tanney along with receivers DeWayne Peace and Lavasier Tuinei.

• Panthers: Nike removed from circulation a “small quantity of incorrect Carolina Panthers T-shirts” that had the team’s Panthers logo with the letters “NC” inside an outline of South Carolina, according to espn.com. The Panthers play their home games in Charlotte, N.C.

• Raiders: Owner Mark Davis wants a 50,000-seat stadium built near the site of Oakland’s O.co Stadium. A team-commissioned study figured a new stadium at that site would cost about $800 million, according to the Oakland Tribune. The Raiders’ current lease ends after this season.

• Packers: Green Bay, the NFL’s only publicly owned team, released its financial statement for last year and showed a profit of $54.3 million with total revenue rising 2 percent to $308.1 million. ... Safety Morgan Burnett agreed to a four-year, $26 million contract extension.
