Rams NFL's Least Valuable Franchise

The Rams are the NFL's least valuable franchise. In its annual list, Forbes rates the Rams' worth at $930-million, the lowest of any NFL franchise. The Dallas Cowboys are No. 1 at 3.2-billion, followed by the Patriots at 2.6-billion. The average NFL team is worth 1.43-billion.

The Rams continue to prep for Saturday's preseason game against the Browns in Cleveland. Browns head coach Mike Pettine announced veteran Brian Hoyer will be his starting quarterback to open the regular season, getting the nod over rookie Johnny Manziel.

Rams offensive tackle Roger Saffold is hoping to see the field this weekend against the Browns. He's been recovering from a stinger in his left shoulder and has yet to appear in a preseason game. Saffold says he's good to go, but the coaching staff is being cautious with his health.

Bears Eighth On Forbes' List

"Forbes" has released its NFL team values for the upcoming season. The Bears are eighth and valued at $1.7-billion. That's a 36-percent increase from last season. The Cowboys are first and valued at $3.2-billion. Meanwhile, the Bears continue to prep for a meeting with the Seahawks in Week Three of the preseason Friday.

The Bears will have safety Chris Conte back on the field Friday. He will debut against the Seahawks after having shoulder surgery almost five months ago. He was activated over a week ago from the physically unable to perform list but missed last week's preseason game against the Jaguars.
