Russell Wilson has beaten Peyton Manning once again.

Wilson now is the top ranked NFL player in merchandise sales, according to a release by NFL Players, Inc., passing the Denver Broncos quarterback for the spot. Wilson had the most merchandise sales from March 1, 2013 through Feb. 28, 2014. Manning is No. 2 and San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick is No. 3.

And take a guess who is the first non-quarterback on the list? Beast Mode, of course.

Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch is seventh on the merchandise list. The top 6 all are quarterbacks -- Washington's Robert Griffin III is fourth, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers fifth and New England's Tom Brady is sixth. Lynch is the only non-quarterback in the top 10.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is No. 12 on the top-50 list, the first defensive back and the second defensive player. Houston defensive lineman J.J. Watt was one spot ahead of Sherman.
