ESPN The Magazine has an annual mission to identify the highest-paying sports franchises in the world.

The list ranks teams based on the average annual pay, which pushes NFL clubs down as they have bigger rosters than baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer and cricket.

The Tennessee Titans rank 133rd on this list based on their 2013 salaries, seventh on the NFL.

That’s up 19 spots from their average from 2012 thanks to an influx of free agents last spring.

They paid more to their average player than storied teams like the Steelers, Giants, 49ers, Patriots, Ravens and Cowboys as well as their three opponents in the AFC South -- Houston, Indianapolis and Jacksonville.
