Manning Leads and RG3 Outpaces Andrew Luck in Top-Selling NFL Jerseys

It shouldn't be a surprise that Peyton Manning's Broncos jersey is the top-selling NFL jersey and Tim Tebow is second. However, what may surprise some is that Robert Griffin III is outselling first overall pick Andrew Luck. In fact, RG3 sold more jerseys than anyone in football for the month of May.

Between April 1 and May 28, Manning led a crowded crop of high-profile veterans and rookies who found themselves on new teams. These off-season moves dominate the list of the top ten jersey sales recorded by NFLShop.com. Five of the top seven spots are occupied by players on new teams.

Tebow, who was sent to the New York Jets after Manning signed with Denver, remains a lightning rod for merchandise sales. Despite being the likely Broadway backup, Tebow finished second. It goes without saying that his popularity transcends his perceived potential.

The third spot is where things really get interesting. Perhaps as much an indicator of the Redskins' larger fanbase than anything else, RG3, the second pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, moved more jerseys in the two-month span than Luck. Because the draft was in April, May was the first full month both highly regarded quarterbacks had jerseys available. RG3 moved into the top spot for just May.

Below is the full list of the ten top-selling NFL jerseys for April 1 to May 28, 2012 as determined by NFLShop.com.
