Kolb And McNabb Are Amongst The Top Jersey Sales In The NationNews, NFL Thursday, May 6th, 2010
The current leader in NFL jersey sales is Denver rookie quarterback Tim Tebow and McNabb is running right behind him.
It’s all about the quarterbacks and new arrivals when it comes to jersey sales in the National Football League.¬† All of the big name quarterbacks are among the top ten players in jersey sales as well as popular rookies and veteran stars, who are playing for new teams.
The Broncos decision to draft the former Heisman Trophy winner in the first round was the biggest story of the selection process this season.¬† He led the University of Florida to two National Championships and four years of top rankings.
There has been and continues to be a spirited debate on whether he can become a top NFL quarterback.
McNabb is part of one of the NFL’s biggest off season stories.¬† Fans were shocked when he was traded from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Redskins.¬†¬† Skins fans are grabbing up his jersey with the hopes that he will revive their winning ways.
Last year McNabb wasn’t even number one on the Eagles.¬† He trailed backup quarterback Michael Vick in terms of jersey sales.
Kolb, who has taken over for McNabb in Philadelphia is also among the league leaders.¬† His number 4 jersey currently 12th on the list of sales.
Former San Diego Charger superstar running back LaDainain Tomlinson was released by the Chargers this off season and he decided to sign with the New York Jets after talking to a few teams.¬† He is now sixth on the jersey list.
The second pick in the draft Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamakung Suh beat the guy, St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, who was drafted ahead of him in jersey saies.¬† It’s unusual for a defensive lineman to beat a “franchise quarterback” in jersey sales.
On the negative side, Ben Roethlisberger has been accused of sexual misconduct two times in the last year.¬† His number seven jersey had been amongst the popular selllers for years but his jersey is not amongst the top 25 any longer.
