Sorry, Johnny Manziel. According to the latest reports, you’re not even the most popular player on your own team.
That distinction belongs to All-Pro cornerback Joe Haden, whose Cleveland Browns jersey has topped all NFL players in jersey sales at Dick’s Sporting Goods over the last 30 days. Haden beat out some pretty big names to earn No. 1, as his jersey outsold rookie of the year Odell Beckham Jr., star quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck, and new Philadelphia Eagles running back DeMarco Murray.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has been in the news quite a bit this offseason, had the NFL’s sixth-most popular jersey in the past month, while tight end Rob Gronkowski just missed the top 10 at No. 11.
The Browns and their bold new threads are making some noise in the jersey department, as Cleveland led the way in overall team sales as well. Johnny Football does appear to have support in his home state, as Dick’s released a map detailing the top-selling jerseys in each state during the 2014-15 season.
A few of these results inevitably will change this season, as rookie quarterbacks Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota also are in the top 10 in jersey sales so far this offseason.
