2 Falcons make NFLPA’s top 50 merchandise sales list

New, comments

It’s likely who you think.

The NFLPA has revealed their sales list for the top 50 players from March through November 2018. Licensed product categories include everything from game jerseys to bobbleheads.

There’s no real surprise that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finished at No. 1, but two Atlanta Falcons players did make the list, and you can probably guess who they are.

Julio Jones – 24th

Coming in toward the middle of the list is none other than wide receiver Julio Jones. Coming off a phenomenal season where he led the league in targets (170), receiving yards (1,677), and receiving yards per game (104.8), I’m kind of surprised he isn’t higher on the list.

Players who ranked higher than Julio Jones include:

19.) RB Alvin Kamara, New Orleans Saints

20.) LB Von Miller, Denver Broncos

21.) QB Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

22.) DE J.J. Watt, Houston Texans

23.) RB Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams

Matt Ryan – 50th

That’s right, 2016 MVP quarterback Matt Ryan finished 50th on the list of top 50 players in merchandise sales for 2018. Like Julio, Matty Ice had a great season where he finished third overall in passing yards (4,924) and passing touchdowns (35), and fourth overall in completion percentage (69.4%) and completions (422).

Players who ranked higher than Matt Ryan include:

45.) RB James Conner, Pittsburgh Steelers

46.) QB Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

47.) LB Leighton Vander Esch, Dallas Cowboys

48.) WR Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints

49.) DT Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams
