One way to help ensure yourself of a roster spot if by taking a pay cut. That’s exactly what WR Michael Jenkins did when he restructured his contract and had his 2012 salary slashed from $2.5 million to $1 million.
NEW YORK — Mariah Carey and No Doubt are superstar acts, but they’ll be the openers for the NFL’s first game of the season.
Carey and No Doubt are set to perform live from Rockefeller Plaza before the New York Giants-Dallas Cowboys game at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
The hourlong pregame show will air at 7:30 p.m. EDT on NBC.
Carey says she’s thrilled to be performing in New York – which she called her hometown – and adds she’s looking forward to making the season launch “even more festive.”
No Doubt drummer and New Orleans Saints fan Adrian Young says he’s excited to take part, and noted that the band performed at Super Bowl in 2003.
Carey recently released the single “Triumphant (Get `Em).” No Doubt’s new album, “Push and Shove,” is out Sept. 25.

All 32 NFL franchises made Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s 50 most valuable sports teams for 2012. It’s also no surprise the top two teams are heated rivals from the league’s highest-profile division, the NFC East.
Jerry Jones’ Dallas Cowboys ($1.85 billion) trump Daniel Synder’s Washington Redskins ($1.56 billion) by a considerable margin for No. 1 overall. The Super Bowl champion New York Giants aren’t far behind at No. 4 valued at $1.3 billion. The Philadelphia Eagles round out the division’s financial prowess at No. 7, coming in at $1.16 billion.
In all, 15 NFL teams are worth $1 billion or more. The Jacksonville Jaguars, who turned their ownership over to Shad Khan this year, have the lowest value at $725 million.
Pulling just the NFL clubs from Forbes’ overall top 50, here is how they rank from 1-32 (team, value, owner):
