Here with a surprising jersey sales update is PR guy Danny Christiansen.
Eli may have two Super Bowl rings, but this week he was eclipsed in the Dick’s Sporting Goods Jersey Report by Robert Griffin III. The Jersey Report is a first-of-its-kind tool that breaks down the best-selling jerseys across the 500-plus Dick’s locations. The rankings include Top 10 Overall, Offensive, Defensive, Rookie, and Heatseekers based on biggest daily jump in rankings for sales.
This is the third consecutive week that RGIII has climbed the Jersey Report rankings and now sits at No. 3 overall behind fellow rookie Andrew Luck and Eli’s older brother, Peyton Manning. Griffin III also ranks third on the Offensive Players list, and second behind Luck on the Rookie list. RGIII can catch just about anyone on the gridiron, and has outperformed Luck on the field and fantasy stat sheets, but he has yet to catch him in jersey sales.
Other Redskins notables on the Report are Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan, ranked nine and 10 respectively among defensive players, despite number 98 being sidelined for the year.
Keep an eye on the Dick’s Sporting Goods Jersey Report throughout the rest of the season to get a breakdown of how the sales of your favorite players’ jerseys are rising, falling and stacking up against the competition.
