Report: NFL teams each received $187 million in national revenue
NFL teams each received $187.7 million in national revenue this year, reports ESPN's Darren Rovell. Since the revenue is split evenly, that means the league as a whole split more than $6 billion.
The Green Bay Packers, the NFL's only publicly-owned team, released financial information Thursday showing that they received $187.7 million in national revenue, or 1/32 of the league's total national revenue. According to Rovell, that $6 billion pot is up 56%, factoring for inflation, since 2006.
The Packers, though community-owned, are not traded publicly. The franchise shared the financial data with the media ahead of disclosing the numbers to shareholders next week. Per FOX 11, the team brought in $324 million in revenue -- both local and national -- but had an operational profit of $25.6 million, down from last year because of increased expenses.
The Packers finished 8-7-1 last season and won the NFC North.
