Andrew Luck Ranks 16th in NFL Player Sales
According to the recently published NFLPA’s Top 50 NFL Player Sales list, the Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck ranks #16th in total sales. He was the only member of the Colts represented in the Top 50.
The list was for Q1 of FY16 for the NFLPA and was comprised of the dates of March 1, 2015-May 31, 2015, with the sales consisting of anything from player jersey’s to bobble heads.
While Luck seems a bit low on the list based on initial thought, it’s easy to see on first glance that a handful of the players ahead of him are ones that found new homes this offseason by either being highly touted rookies or changing teams:
"1. Tom Brady, New England Patriots2. Colin Kaepernick, San Francisco 49ers3. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks4. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers5. Peyton Manning, Denver Broncos6. J.J. Watt, Houston Texans7. Richard Sherman, Seattle Seahawks8. Odell Beckham, Jr., New York Giants9. Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans10. Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers11. DeMarco Murray, Philadelphia Eagles12. Jimmy Graham, Seattle Seahawks13. Joe Haden, Cleveland Browns14. Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots15. LeSean McCoy, Buffalo Bills16. Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts"
One thing is for sure, that the “Deflate-Gate” controversy didn’t exactly hurt Tom Brady‘s popularity, who’s ranked #1 on the player sales list. It’s worth noting that Colin Kaepernick seems a bit out-of-place at #2, but there are usual suspects surrounding him such as Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, and J.J. Watt respectively to round out the Top 6.
Before it’s all said and done, Luck will likely climb on this list, much like his Colts predecessor Peyton Manning did to routinely be in the Top 5 of NFL players sales. However, there’s no question that Luck is not only one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL as it is, but also one of the most popular.
