Eli's jersey among NFL's top 5 sellers

By Ohm Youngmisuk

So far it has been a great 2012 for Eli Manning.

He won the Super Bowl, was Super Bowl MVP, hosted "Saturday Night Live" and his jersey is a top-five seller.

The NFL released a list of its best-selling jerseys, on from April 1-May 28 -- and Manning and Victor Cruz (18th) are ranked in the top 25. However, there is a more popular player in New York than both of them. The Jets' Tim Tebow is second in jersey sales.

Eli, though, is the only player in the top five who isn't a rookie or with a new team (Peyton Manning and Tebow).
