New York Giants running back Saquon Barley currently has the top-selling jersey in NFL, according to the DICK’s Sporting Goods Jersey Report.
Saquon Barkley is already winning big in the NFL. In addition to being the No. 2 overall pick by the New York Giants, the former Penn State Nittany Lion now has the best-selling jersey in the NFL. Not just among rookies, but the entire league overall.
The official DICK’s Sporting Goods Jersey Report came out Wednesday morning, and Saquon is on top. Not only that, he’s ahead of division rivals such as Carson Wentz, Ezekiel Elliot, and Dak Prescott as well. This report is of course only pertaining to jerseys sold at DICK’s Sporting Goods locations and online at DicksSportingGoods.com
The Giants were also named on the report as the best-selling team jersey in the NFL. This ranking once again surpasses division rivals, as the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are two and three respectively.
Since Barkley was drafted in April, he’s become a true fan-favorite. He’s already thrown out the first pitch for the New York Yankees in late May and participated in Landon Collins’ Celebrity Softball Game earlier this month. Now fans just have to wait to see if he can show up to the great potential he has on the field.
Many signs are pointing in the right direction this offseason for Big Blue. The new offense led by head coach Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula has the players more than motivated. Star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. announced there will be no hold-out for a new contract. And now, it seems like fans are very excited as well, as Giants jerseys are selling faster than any others. Now let’s see if they can truly bounce back from one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history.
