AFC West teams' worth take a dip

Forbes Magazine is reporting the Kansas City Chiefs are one of three teams whose worth fell below a billion in the past year. Perhaps the renovated Arrowhead Stadium will help Kansas City climb back over the billion mark. Still, being worth just below a billion isn’t so shabby.

According to the magazine’s rankings, each AFC West team lost some value from a year ago. Denver is ranked No. 10 n the NFL on the value list, Kansas City is ranked No. 20, San Diego is ranked No. 24 and Oakland is ranked No. 31, only ahead of struggling Jacksonville, which has been rumored to be interesting in leaving the city at some point.

Much of the value is based in stadium worth and the Raiders’ stadium has been less than desirable for years. The Raiders are interested in a new stadium but don’t have anything concrete in the works.
