Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson may be the most popular player in the NFL right now, as fans are spending more on his jersey than any other.
According to the NFL Players Association, jerseys and T-shirts with Wilson’s name on them outsold all other players’ apparel in the fiscal quarter from June 1 through August 31. Wilson took the top spot back from Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, whose jersey sold like hotcakes in the first few weeks after the Browns took him in the first round of the NFL draft.
After Wilson, the next best-selling jerseys were those of Peyton Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was No. 6 and Manziel has dropped to No. 7. The highest-ranking defensive player was J.J. Watt, at No. 10.
The player whose jersey surged the most over the summer was Bears receiver Brandon Marshall, who went from No. 31 in the last jersey sales rankings to No. 13 this time around.
Jersey purchases are the most common way for fans to show their loyalty to a player, but not the only way. Peyton Manning sold the most Fatheads in the last quarter, while Eddie Lacy sold the most bobbleheads.
