Russell Wilson may have the jersey, but the Cowboys own the win.
Just a couple days after Dallas upset Seattle, the NFL Players Association announced that the Seahawks’ quarterback has the most popular jersey in the league.
From June 1 to Sept. 1 Wilson’s jerseys and T-shirts outsold all other NFL players, ahead of Peyton Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.
The highest Cowboy on the list is Dez Bryant at No. 6, followed by a player who has yet to take an NFL snap at his position – Johnny Manziel. Jason Witten (9th) and Tony Romo (25th) also cracked the list for the Cowboys.
Houston’s J.J. Watt is the highest-ranking defensive player at No. 7.
In related souvenir news, Manning sold the most Fathead wall posters while, surprisingly, Packers’ running back Eddie Lacy sold the most bobbleheads.
