Joe Burrow skyrockets to top-10 of NFL jersey sales
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow can add this to his resume: being a super popular and just overall likable guy.
The NFL Players Association revealed its top player sales list, which reports sales of all officially licensed NFL player merchandise from Mar. 1 through Nov. 30 of 2021, and Burrow cracked the top-10.
Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes ranked first and second respectively, as they have for the last four years, but Burrow’s jerseys saw a huge jump in the third quarter. He ranks 10th overall in all NFL player products, behind Ravens’ Lamar Jackson and 49ers’ George Kittle.
It comes as no surprise that the Bengals player who placed the highest in jersey sales is our fearless leader, Joe Burrow.
Cincinnati Bengals’ Joe Burrow ranks tenth in NFL player merchandise sales in 2021
One other Bengals’ player jersey made the top-50 of sales: Ja’Marr Chase ranked 45th overall. We were secretly hoping Evan McPherson might make the list, but that’s a tall order for a kicker’s jersey.
Burrow, Chase, and the rest of Cincy will show off some very dapper jerseys in the Super Bowl when they host the Los Angeles Rams.
Once a humble doormat to the playoffs, the Cincinnati Bengals have the opportunity to win their first ever championship — and you can bet their player jersey sales will skyrocket even more after that.
Come 2022, we’d expect Burrow to crack the top-5, and we’re crossing our fingers for McPherson to join the top-50.
We’d also like a report on how many Bengals jerseys were customized to say “Joe Franchise,” “Joe Brrr,” or “Joe Shiesty.” That could make a difference.
