NFL teams getting nice financial bump Dan Leberfeld

According to Daniel Kaplan of sportsbusinessdaily.com, NFL teams are getting a nice increase in television revenue in 2014.

“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,” wrote Kaplan for sportsbusinessdaily.com. “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.”
