October 28, 2015: Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks is not only one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, he has the best-selling merchandise, including  both men’s and women’s Nike jerseys, women’s apparel and  collegiate co-branded products.

Wilson also leads three other quarterbacks — Tom Brady (New England Patriots), Peyton Manning (Denver Broncos) and Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers) — who hold the Top Four spots in merchandise sales among all NFL players for the year-to-date from March 1 through Aug. 31, 2015, according to information released by the NFL Players Assn. and its licensing and marketing arm NFL Players Inc.

The list is based on overall sales of all licensed products from online and traditional retail outlets as reported by more than 80 NFLPA licensees.

They include Aminco, Bleacher Creatures, Fanatics, FanPrint, Fathead, FBF Originals, Forever Collectibles, McFarlane Toys, New Era, Nike, Outerstuff, Oyo Sportstoys, Photo File and VF Imagewear.
