The National Football League (NFL) training camps have been open for less than a week and New England Patriots superstar quarterback Tom Brady is already on top of the league once again.
[agg-ad id=”438″ align=”left”]The Patriots’ veteran quarterback ranks at the top spot in NFL merchandise sales in a list compiled by the NFL Players Association (NFLPA).
[agg-ad id=”442″ align=”center”]The merchandise list is based on total sales of all officially licensed NFL player merchandise tracking year-to-date results from March 1 to May 31.
Tom Brady, the five-time Super Bowl champion, was joined at the top of the list by Dallas Cowboys teammates running back Ezekiel Elliott (No. 2) and quarterback Dak Prescott (No. 3). Two more Dallas Cowboys were also in the top 10 in wide receiver Dez Bryant (No. 6) and tight end Jason Witten (No. 10).
The Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, who returned to the NFL after a one-year truancy, was seating at the fourth spot and Seattle Seahawks star quarterback Russell Wilson rounded out the top five.
The rest of the top 10 included Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (No. 7), New York Giants veteran wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (No. 8), and Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (No. 9), who’s made it to the top 10 for the first time.

“Being a part of Steelers Nation means having some of the best fan support in the league. But more than that, this list shows just how passionate fans of all players are.”
The top 50 player sales list is released quarterly by the NFLPA, through its licensing and marketing arm NFL Players Incorporated. It is based on total sales of all NFL professional American football player licensed products via online and traditional brick-and-mortar retail stores.
