Michael Sam Rookie Jersey Outselling Everyone’s Except Johnny Manziel’s
Michael Sam may have gone lower in the NFL draft than he expected or hoped, but his rookie jersey is near the top of the heap:
NEW YORK (AP) — The 249th pick in the NFL draft has the second most popular jersey of all the players selected last weekend.
Michael Sam’s Rams jersey was the No. 2 seller among rookies on NFLShop.com. Sam became the first openly gay player to be drafted when St. Louis took him late in the seventh and final round Saturday.
The top seller was quarterback Johnny Manziel’s.
It seems the market has spoken.
