Johnny Football Has Top-Selling Jersey in Entire NFL
Controversy creates cash — and sells jerseys.
Johnny Manziel has the top-selling jersey in the NFL since April 1 just three days after his jersey went on the market after he was drafted in the First Round by the Cleveland Browns on Thursday.
As ESPN noted, his jersey has topped “the likes of Russell Wilson, Peyton Manning, and Colin Kaepernick” and has sold more jerseys than Andrew Luck, Cam Newton, and Robert Griffin III combined during their first weekend in the league.
Manziel helped make the Draft the most watched Draft ever with dominant ratings, and Cleveland has reportedly sold thousands of new season tickets since he was drafted.
