Ranking All NFL Teams From Least To Most Valuable

Washington Redskins

Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder does not care all that much about what you think of his team s nickname or logo. He seemingly does not care all that much about what his team s coaching staff feels about quarterback Robert Griffin III. Snyder should probably be concerned with the fact that his team is seen as the worst in the NFC East and a franchise that is a black hole for head coaches so long as Snyder owns the team. Perhaps the best thing for everybody involved would be for Snyder to see the writing on the wall and sell the Redskins.Current Value: $2.85 Billion
