Here Are The 20 Players That Led The NFL In Merchandise Sales This Year

The NFLPA released a list of the players who led the NFL in merchandise sales this past season, and plenty of familiar names populated the list. It's not a surprise that quarterbacks make up most of the list or that Tom Brady led the league in merchandise sales (the growth of the TB12 method may have something to do with that), but there are a few surprises on the list.

According to the NFLPA, total merchandise sales are based on "total sales of officially licensed NFL player merchandise, tracking year-end results from March 1, 2017 through February 28, 2018." With that in mind, here are the 20 players who sold more merchandise than anyone else:

1. Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
2. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys
3. Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles
4. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys
5. Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers
6. Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay Packers
7. Odell Beckham Jr., WR, New York Giants
8. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
9. Rob Gronkowski, TE, New England Patriots
10. Derek Carr, QB, Oakland Raiders
11. Marshawn Lynch, RB, Oakland Raiders
12. Dez Bryant, WR, Dallas Cowboys
13. Von Miller, LB, Denver Broncos
14. Jason Witten, TE, Dallas Cowboys
15. J.J. Watt, DE, Houston Texans
16. Khalil Mack, LB, Oakland Raiders
17. Zach Ertz, TE, Philadelphia Eagles
18. Julio Jones, WR, Atlanta Falcons
19. Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Pittsburgh Steelers
20. Cam Newton, QB, Carolina Panthers

The Cowboys had more players on the list than anyone with four, while the Raiders came in second with three players. No rookies made the cut, but Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson finished the highest at No. 25.

Unsurprisingly, eight players of the top 20 were quarterbacks, more than any other position. Only three (Von Miller, J.J. Watt, Khalil Mack) of the top 20 were defensive players.
