Forbes ranks Arizona Cardinals as one of the most valuable teams in 2013

USA TODAY Sports

Like most NFL teams, they are worth a ton.

Even though the Arizona Cardinals have been a struggling franchise for most of its history, and that has been the case recently, one thing that the team has done well is guard its value. Of course, considering the amount of money to be had in the NFL, and it would seem that any monkey could make money with an NFL team.

Yes, NFL franchises are worth a lot of money. The Cardinals are included in that group. In fact Arizona is among the 2013 top 50 teams in value, according to Forbes.

Among the 50, they come up 39th, worth an estimated $922 million. One of the reasons is University is Phoenix Stadium, as Forbes writes in the list. "The team's stadium naming rights deal with University of Phoenix is one of largest in NFL, worth $154.5 million over 20 years."

Among the NFL teams, all of which were on the list, the Cards came in 25th. The most valuable team is the Dallas Cowboys, worth $2.1 billion.
