Worth Ted Washington's Weight in Gold

The Browns may need a lot of help on the field, but one place they ain't hurtin' is in the wallet. Check out this article from, which ranks the value of the various NFL franchises.

Five teams -- the Redskins, Patriots, Cowboys, Texans and Eagles-- are worth more than $1 billion. However, the Cleveland Browns just missed the billion dollar club, with an estimated value of $970 million.

Okay, if you want to get technical about it, the Browns are worth a lot more than Ted's weight in gold. Gold's about $625 per ounce, or roughly $10,000 per pound. So Ted's value in gold ($3.65 million) wouldn't even amount to a decent signing bonus by NFL standards.
