Four Cowboys jerseys among the top 10 sellers for 2016

Getty Images

Tony Romo didn’t play much football last year and, in turn, didn’t sell many jerseys. Four other Cowboys sold plenty.

The quartet of running back Ezekiel Elliot, quarterback Dak Prescott, receiver Dez Bryant, and tight end Jason Witten finished in the top 10 for all jersey sales in 2016 through NFLShop.com, finishing No. 2, No. 3, No. 9, and No. 10, respectively.

SportsBusiness Daily has the top 15. For the second straight year, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady led the way.

The top 15, in order, are Brady, Elliott, Prescott, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, Bryant, Witten, Broncos linebacker Von Miller, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Raiders linebacker Khalil Mack, and Patriots receiver Julian Edelman.

The early favorite to lead the way in 2017 is Marshawn Lynch, who likely will sell tens of thousands if/when he signs with the Raiders.

    all the Cowboys fans came out of hiding once they won some games, that’s all this article says

    Why take the shot at Romo? smh

  3. 1gallon says: Apr 11, 2017 12:45 PM

    Julian Edelman at #15 surprises me. I know he is popular, but #15 out of all NFL players?

    Greg Hardy?

  5. imodan says: Apr 11, 2017 12:52 PM

    sure, spend a hundred bucks on a one year mercenary. Raider Nation.

  6. jimmylikesthat says: Apr 11, 2017 12:59 PM

    Somehow, some way, some wib, this will be spun as a cheating scandal by a certain troll since three Pats are on the list

  7. 400marios says: Apr 11, 2017 1:00 PM

    I wonder what there was more of: Cowboys jerseys sold, or Kaepernick jerseys thrown in the garbage.

  8. pastabelly says: Apr 11, 2017 1:00 PM

    Why buy Brady jerseys when they are so easy to steal?

  9. 23rdusernameused says: Apr 11, 2017 1:00 PM

    everyone needs a shop rag/towel to clean up grease and assorted crap right??

  10. jimmylikesthat says: Apr 11, 2017 1:01 PM

    What is the most stolen jersey?

  11. Flash1287 says: Apr 11, 2017 1:03 PM

    Brady is # 1 in everything

    GOAT

    “The early favorite to lead the way in 2017 is Marshawn Lynch, who likely will sell tens of thousands if/when he signs with the Raiders.”

    If/when Lynch signs with the Raiders I would take the under on that ‘tens of thousands’ you anticipate. The Elliot, Prescott and Wentz jerseys being top sellers aren’t all that surprising, it’s not as though anyone already had one. Brady, Witten and Rodgers have all been doing it for 10 plus years, you’d think at this point anybody that was inclined to buy their jersey would already have one

  13. superpunky5 says: Apr 11, 2017 1:05 PM

    What no Browns I guess they did not want to pay anybody to wear jersey

  14. nsawins says: Apr 11, 2017 1:08 PM

    Jason “Never Won Anything” Witten??? LOL, talk about throwing your money in the trash.

  15. bobthebillsfan says: Apr 11, 2017 1:11 PM

    The only name on the list that surprised me was Carson Wentz. Edleman at 15 is no surprise, he does a lot for NE and the fans there love him. I tip my hat to Eagle fans.

  16. theyhatewe says: Apr 11, 2017 1:15 PM

    Let me guess. Tom Brady was more than likely generally aware of some guy he texted a year ago whom he refers to as “The Shirtinator” bought 150,000 #12s to cheat his way to winning for the second straight year.

    Wow, this conspiracy stuff is pretty easy to make up. Where is Wells?

    ————-

    It’s not all about BB and Brady. Edelman has been the most clutch WR in the last 4 years. He has had great numbers for 3 of those years in terms of receptions and yards and he’s an amazing punt returner. For a long time he was the all time leader in yards per punt return and now he is tied with Hester at 9th behind a bunch of ancient guys.

    Obviously it doesn’t hurt to be on a winning team.

  18. wib22 says: Apr 11, 2017 1:20 PM

    Interesting that the cheats have a ton of best selling jerseys.

    no integrity

    i jsut want a Brett Favre falcons jersey

  20. dawoger says: Apr 11, 2017 1:22 PM

    So the free jersey with a lutefisk dinner at Olie’s Diner over the past holidays didn’t help much with the lavender loki’s jersey sales?

  21. jay25340 says: Apr 11, 2017 1:22 PM

    Why the diss on Witten commenting guy above? He’s a heck of a good player and he’s an even better person. – Eagles fan

    =================================

    The Cowboys have become the most valuable sports team on the planet, after admittedly not doing much the last 20 years. What is says is we aren’t bandwagon fans. See how many jerseys the Patriots sell after Brady and Belichick are gone. It won’t be many.

  23. streetyson says: Apr 11, 2017 1:31 PM

    Wow, Zeke at No.2 and Dez Bryant at No.9? – lot of fans with no moral compass.

  24. babygaga19 says: Apr 11, 2017 1:33 PM

    And now you know why Romo got the gig. Cowboys are popular. He will get more eyeballs than Simms.

    Kind of played a key role in the Pats winning the Super Bowl

    It probably KILLED Jersey sales. I can’t even stand to smell the stuff.

    I still rock my team’s first Hall of Famer jersey (authentic home, away, alternate, Pro Bowl, prior styles). I was on a roll until my wife put a ban on any more jersey purchases. Such is life.

  29. weepingjebus says: Apr 11, 2017 1:47 PM

    It’s actually dangerous to steal Jets SB jerseys because back then they were made from asbestos coated dodo hide.

  30. trubroncfan07 says: Apr 11, 2017 1:56 PM

    Surprise? haha so you are telling me the two teams that have one the most Super Bowls sold the most jerseys. Every bandwagon/front runner loves a winner.

  31. largejk says: Apr 11, 2017 1:58 PM

    No prediction for the awesome Kapernick shirt sales to skyrocket once he is signed? hahahaha

  32. harrisonhits2 says: Apr 11, 2017 2:04 PM

    “Brady is a proven cheater”

    Only to those who failed 5th grade science.

    If you still actually believe deflategate and aren’t just trolling I’d like to sell you Madison Square Garden, the Triboro Bridge and the Washington Monument. I’ll give you a great package price on all 3 if you’d like.

    Only saw one stealer on that list.

    Fantasy. If you could own one, iconic, game, Mt. Rushmore jersey, forget the value and cost, what would it be? Yikes, so many choices here. Babe Ruth might be pretty sweet! Jordan? Brady? Gretsky?

  35. thrifty says: Apr 11, 2017 2:12 PM

    Didn’t realize that clowns were so popular.

  36. daysend564 says: Apr 11, 2017 2:13 PM

    Wentz jerseys skyrocketed when he played well the first 5-6 games of the season. Then, well, the other 10 games happened…

  37. droppedinagreasefire says: Apr 11, 2017 2:17 PM

    Cowboys, Cowboys, Cowboys. Now you know why Romo got the gig. More collective eyeballs on him than Simms. It’s all about money, honey and tv ratings. Maybe CBS should add Britney Spears to the booth.

  38. mykpfsu says: Apr 11, 2017 2:44 PM

    4 times as many playoff games that they won.

  39. rhd366 says: Apr 11, 2017 2:44 PM

    It will be interesting to see how Elliot shirts will sell after he evidently
    likes to expose women in public. You must feel proud to wear his shirt.

  40. 400marios says: Apr 11, 2017 2:48 PM

    Jerseys I want:

    Falcons #7 “Mexico”

    Chiefs home jersey #99 “Luftbaloons”

    49’ers #7 “Jobless”

  41. schmitty2 says: Apr 11, 2017 3:01 PM

    Do the Elliott jersey’s expose the mid-riff? Lord knows many men don’t want to expose that to the world.

  42. tedmurph says: Apr 11, 2017 3:08 PM

    Pound for pound, Edelman may be the toughest guy in the NFL. And, I thought the cheater narrative was TB was the most hated guy in the country, and everyone outside of New England thinks he’s a cheater. What happened to that?

  43. wib22 says: Apr 11, 2017 3:48 PM

    Kraft gave up the fight. He knew brady did it.

    Hey chippy, thanks for stopping by. Provided the moderation team let’s you see this, can you reconcile those 2 posts for us please?

  48. wib22 says: Apr 11, 2017 5:31 PM

    That was before I realized that kraft covered up years of shameful cheating

  49. chippys lost binky says: Apr 11, 2017 5:40 PM

    Again, before I read about how kraft shamefully covered up everything.

  51. raiderrob21 says: Apr 11, 2017 7:57 PM

    2 surprises for me. Carson Wentz??Really??
    Derek Carr should be #1. Great kid on and off the field Improving every year with great work ethic. Someone you would want your kids to look up to.
