Colin Kaepernick has top jersey
ESPN The Mag Body Issue 2013: Colin Kaepernick
Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers had the NFL's top-selling jersey from April 1 to June 30. A look at the top 10.
|1. Colin Kaepernick||49ers|
|2. Russell Wilson||Seahawks|
|3. Robert Griffin III||Redskins|
|4. Adrian Peterson||Vikings|
|5. Peyton Manning||Broncos|
|6. Ryan Tannehill||Dolphins|
|7. Tom Brady||Patriots|
|8. Ray Lewis||Ravens|
|9. Aaron Rodgers||Packers|
|10. Brian Urlacher||Bears|
Quarterbacks finished in four of the top five slots based on sales from April 1-June 30 on NFLShop.com. Seattle Seahawks signal-called Russell Wilson finished second to Kaepernick, followed by Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
Among just drafted rookies, Manti Te'o's No. 50 San Diego Chargers jersey was the most popular. Tavon Austin, EJ Manuel, Cordarrelle Patterson and Eddie Lacy rounded out the top 5. Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith did not crack the top 5, perhaps suggesting that fans aren't ready to put their Mark Sanchez jerseys in the closet just yet.
Despite losing the Super Bowl, the 49ers are leading the offseason in jersey sales, followed by the Seahawks, the only team whose jersey was completely changed last season with the league's new Nike deal. Rounding out the top five were the Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots.
