Where Joe Burrow ranks against Tua Tagovailoa in recent NFL jersey sales


Cincinnati Bengals Joe Burrow jerseys are flying off the shelves.

We knew this right after the draft because the team pro shop was open on the number of orders already ordered.

But it’s interesting to think about the context in relation to the NFL as a whole. Where does Burrow rank among other big league storylines? Especially against Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady?

Luckily for us, we can hop over to NFL Shop and sort by top sellers. There, Burrow is a top 10 seller and has three jerseys in the top 16.

Now, in the interest of being completely transparent, Tagovailoa is running away with the competition, even outselling Brady given that he has the two top sellers:

Big deal? Not really – Burrow plays for a small team with a ton of other stars like Geno Atkins, Joe Mixon and AJ Green, to name a few. One would suspect that its sales might be a bit smaller.

That said – Burrow will have plenty of jerseys in the wild in Ohio this year and beyond, not to mention plenty among the LSU fanbase as well.

Seems like it’s been a long time since the Bengals had a top-10 seller, let alone three top-20. Burrow is supposed to be a cargo hauler.
