22. Ndamukong Suh, Miami Dolphins
23. Tony Romo, Dallas Cowobys
24. Melvin Gordon, San Diego Chargers
25. Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders
Here are some quick assessments we can gather from that list.
The two best-selling jerseys belong to the two quarterbacks that were picked atop the 2015 NFL draft. Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper and San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon also made the list.
Tom Brady is Even More Popular
He’s third on this list. For however many people hate him, there’s obviously more who love “America’s Child.” It would not be surprising to see a Patriots jersey marked “Deflategate” surface this season.
The Seattle Seahawks Continue to Dominate
In addition to Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and Kam Chancellor, the “12th Man” jersey also made the list. Notice how Richard Sherman isn’t in the top 25? That’s odd.
Can’t Hide From the Tim Tebow
Tebow might not end up making the Eagles’ final roster, but fans continue to show endless faith in him by purchasing enough of his jerseys to allow him to make some cash.
People are Actually Purchasing Oakland Raiders Jerseys
After Derek Carr had a breakout rookie season, this team is finally gaining some respect. Big things are also expected from the team’s first round pick this year, wide receiver Amari Cooper.
The 49ers’ Alternate Jersey is Sexy
Nearly everyone looks good in black, especially Colin Kaepernick. Many will buy his jersey purely based on the quarterback’s striking image.
