Trent Richardson, Brandon Weeden Among Top 5 In NFL Rookie Jersey Sales

Though Brandon Weeden had an NFL debut to forget in Week 1, he's still selling jerseys. Weeden is No. 5 in jersey sales among NFL rookies so far in 2012, which is pretty remarkable, given his age and poor Week 1 performance.

As expected, Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III are No. 1 and No. 2 in jersey sales among NFL rookies. Luck's debut wasn't so hot in Week 1, but RG3 certainly lit it up, leading the Washington Redskins to a road win over the New Orleans Saints.

↵

Trent Richardson, another Browns rookie, is No. 3 in rookie jersey sales. Richardson, like Weeden, will hope for a better Week 2, to help boost those sales even further.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly is fourth, between the two Browns rookies.

As the folks at Waiting for Next Year point out, it's remarkable that Weeden is trending upward after his performance in Week 1. Hopefully for his sake, and Cleveland's, his jersey sales will trend even higher with improved play.
