NFL = Big Money

The NFL split a massive $7.24 billion in revenue with all 32 teams last season. Each team received $226.4 million as part of the split, most of which comes from the various television deals. The numbers come from the Green Bay Packers' annual financial report, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

If you're having trouble grasping the meaning of that massive amount of money, the NFL would qualify as one of the richest countries on the world, at least according to Wikipedia. Their numbers would put them somewhere in the 145 range. The league would rank somewhere around No. 50 overall when it comes to private companies as well, according to this list from Forbes.

More comparisons to help put $7.24 billion in context:

- More than every Steven Spielberg movie ever at the box office, according to Box Office Mojo.
- The NFL could buy four space shuttles.
- 10 Pluto missions with enough left over to pay Peyton Manning to run them.
