Former Alabama Quarterback Among Top Player Sales
Former Alabama quarterback Mac Jones is continuing to grow his brand.
On Thursday, the NFL Players Association released its rankings of top merchandise sales by player from March 1, 2021 to February 28, 2022, with Jones sitting at No. 5.
The two-time national champion has seen a rapid growth in popularity throughout the NFL. He had his name dropped in Sunday's episode of Family Guy, competed in the 2022 Pro Bowl and Skills Challenge, and was a finalist for the 2021 NFL Rookie of the Year.
Not to mention when No. 10 was announced as the New England Patriots starting quarterback over Cam Newton in August of 2021, his jersey sold out within hours at the Patriots Pro Shop.
Jones exceeded expectations in his rookie season with a rebuilding Patriots squad last season. He went 352-of-521, 3,801 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 13 interceptions, leading the team to a 10-7 record and a playoff appearance where the Patriots lost to the Buffalo Bills in wildcard weekend.
The former Manning Award winner became the starting quarterback for the Tide in 2020, leading them not only to an undefeated season, but also an SEC and national championship.
Jones leads the former Tide players in merchandise sales this past year by a landslide. Derrick Henry landed at No. 21, Najee Harris at No. 22, Josh Jacobs at No. 25, Jalen Hurts at No. 35, DeVonta Smith at No. 36, Tua Tagovailoa at No. 39, and Amari Cooper at No. 47.
