The NFL has released a list of the league’s best-selling jerseys midway through 2022.
Newly acquired Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams ranked among the top ten in NFL jersey sales on Wednesday.
Adams, who now wears silver and black, was ranked third on the list.
The All-Pro wide receiver will start the new season at his new Las Vegas home after being traded this offseason.
Adams was coming off another stellar season at Green Bay in 2021, placing in the top five in most wide receiver categories.
Last season, Adams had 123 receptions (2nd in the NFL), on 169 targets (4th), for 1,553 receiving yards (3rd) and 11 receiving touchdowns (5th) as a member of the Packers.
There is no doubt that Adams’ skill and production on the field ranks him among the best receivers in the league.
But with all the new attention brought to the trade, it’s obvious that Raider Nation is backed and just as eager to see him on the pitch as part of the Silver and Black.
The jersey sales speak for themselves, as Adams ranks No. 1 in non-quarterbacks and is just one of two non-QBs to make the top 10 in jersey sales this year. other being Cooper Kupp.
The top ten list consists of eight quarterbacks (one of them being a rookie) and two wide receivers.
Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson tops the list.
Below are the rest of the top 10 best-selling jerseys in the first half:

Adams’ first official appearance wearing the Silver and Black could be in the Raiders’ first preseason game, the Hall of Fame game on August 4, 2022 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, at 43 days old. (In case no one counts)
Or in 72 days, when the Raiders play their first regular season game on September 11, 2022 against the Los Angeles Chargers at So-Fi Stadium.
Adams has had a huge impact on sales since arriving in Las Vegas and continues to be the Raiders’ top-selling jersey over the past two months.
The Raiders have notable players such as defensive end Maxx Crosby and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow climbing in jersey sales, we’ll see throughout the year who retains the top spot among Raider players.
