Robert Griffin III sets single-season record for jerseys sales
NEW YORK (AP) — Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III ranks second in the NFL in passer rating.
He’s right at the top of conversation about rookie of the year. And his jersey is popular as can be.
RG3’s No. 10 Redskins shirt is the top seller on NFLShop.com this season, the website says. The top six spots belong to QBs, with Peyton Manning of the Broncos at No. 2, followed by Aaron Rodgers of the Packers, Eli Manning of the Giants, Tom Brady of the Patriots and Andrew Luck of the Colts.
According to ESPN.com, an NFL spokesperson says Griffin’s jersey already has sold more than any other player’s has in a single season since the league began tracking sales on NFLShop.com six years ago.
