NFL report cards: Players rank the best and worst teams to work for

The NFLPA had players grade each club on various things like team food and locker room environment, and their relationships with coaches and owners.
NFL report cards: Players rank the best and worst teams to work for
Posted at 3:00 PM, Feb 29, 2024

The annual NFL Team Report Cards are out and they're giving some insight into the inner workings of each franchise by shedding light on what the daily experiences are like for players working behind the scenes.

The NFL Players Association surveyed more than 1,700 members and asked them to grade each team based on the inner workings of the organization — things fans are typically blind to. The purpose of the survey is to not only help some players navigate free agency in the offseason, but to also highlight clubs with positive working environments and identify others with room for improvements. 

Players were asked to give their opinion on everything from team cafeteria food and locker room environment, to more personal topics like their relationships with owners and head coaches. 

Some of the findings may come as a surprise, such as the back-to-back Super Bowl champion Chiefs coming in second-to-last in the rankings or teams like the Vikings, Jaguars, and Giants appearing near the top of the list despite missing the playoffs. But as NFLPA President JC Tretter explains, "This project strives to capture an NFL player’s experience at his job/workplace and has nothing to do with winning, or losing, football games."

Here's where each team ranked:
