25 Best Selling NFL Jerseys Since Nike Took Over April 1st


Nike has had the NFL uniform contract since April 1st, so what better time to take a look at the best selling NFL jerseys since that official-supplier-switchover. Tops on the list is Peyton Manning, a logical champion what with his superstar status and the fact that, courtesy of his being on a new team, there’s no previous jersey with which to make due.

After that are another couple of obvious choices in highly-touted rookie Robert Griffin III’s first NFL shirt and world’s-most-popular-backup Tim Tebow’s first Jets jersey.

If you’re starting to think the list is dominated by quarterbacks — rookie Andrew Luck appears at number 4, followed by Eli Manning and Aaron Rodgers, respectively — you’re right. Twelve of the top 25 are QB’s, including eight of the top 10.

But the list isn’t entirely devoid of other positions. In fact two running backs made their way into the top 25, with the first appearing at 18th. Must be Adrian Peterson, right? Arian Foster? Chris Johnson? In fact none of those three ranked, with the halfback champion none other than zero-time All-Pro selection Marshawn Lynch (though he is coming off his best season ever), followed at 22nd by Darren McFadden.
