It’s good to be NFL owner: TV windfall gets even bigger as new deals kick in

Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Daily has a breakdown on the huge money each NFL team stands to earn under terms of the new TV deals.

Kaplan writes:

Each NFL team will get a 20 percent increase in national television money this year compared with 2013 — up $27 million — as a result of the new TV contracts that commence next month, according to sources who have seen the internal figures. Over the following two seasons, the increases will total an additional $23 million per club, at a minimum.

That means by 2016, each NFL team will bring in at least $181 million from national TV alone — more than enough by itself for teams to cover their salary cap expenses.
