RG-3 has NFL's top selling jersey for May
That didn’t take long.
In a span of just more a month – since he was selected with the second pick in the NFL draft – Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III has the hottest selling jersey in the league.
Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post reports that during the period for the month of May, Griffin tops the charts. That means he’s been outselling Peyton Manning Denver Broncos jerseys and Andrew Luck Indianapolis Colts jerseys and everyone else.
Griffin is third overall from April 1 to May 28 even though his jerseys couldn’t be purchased before the April 26 draft. The only players ahead of Griffin in that span are Manning and Tim Tebow, who has been selling plenty of New York Jets jerseys.
Of course, Steinberg points out that after the Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb, he at one point had the No. 2 selling jersey in the entire league.
