Forbes came out with their list of the 50 Most Valuable Sports Teams.
The Denver Broncos come in at No. 20 on that list, valued at $1.05 billion.
The Broncos made the biggest splash of the 2012 offseason when they signed Peyton Manning (above) to a five-year deal worth $96 million. Only the first year at $18 million is guaranteed if Manning struggles to bounce back from multiple neck surgeries. The Broncos have among the most loyal fans in the NFL, having sold out every home, non-strike regular season game since 1970. Retailer Sports Authority took over the remaining 10 years of Invesco’s naming rights deal for the Broncos’ home stadium last season with an option to extend the deal an additional 15 years. The deal is worth more than $150 million over 25 years. – Forbes
