Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott reportedly has NFL’s best-selling jersey
Dallas Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott has enjoyed immediate success on the field and apparently fans have taken notice.
Elliott has the No. 1-selling jersey in the NFL from April 1 to Oct. 31, ESPN reported Monday.
According to the report, Eagles rookie quarterback Carson Wentz is second with Patriots QB Tom Brady, Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. and Cowboys rookie QB Dak Prescott rounding out the top five, respectively.
Elliott’s growing popularity around the league is no surprise. He leads the NFL with 891 rushing yards and is tied for third with seven rushing touchdowns. It also doesn’t hurt that he plays for one of the most popular teams in all of sports.
The Cowboys have returned to prominence on the field thanks to their 7-1 start, and their rookie duo has had much to do with their early-season success.
Elliott and Prescott are not the only Cowboys to have some of the most sought-after jerseys this year. According to the report, wideout Dez Bryant (11th) and tight end Jason Witten (14th) are among the top 15.
