Tom Brady is the No.1 NFL player in merchandise sales


Tom Brady did not make the Super Bowl this year. But his name has sold more jerseys and other goodies than any other NFL player.

Brady’s total transport: over $ 20 million.

The New England Patriots quarterback tops the list of 50 players with the most merchandise sales in the 2015-16 season released by the NFL Players Association on Monday.

Products include everything from swimsuits to pom pom figures and beer koozies to socks.

Last season was also a record year for overall sales – $ 1.55 billion. The previous year’s total was $ 1.4 billion.

The NFLPA, the players’ union, keeps about a third of the revenue, some of which is pooled for all players. About two-thirds of the income goes to the individual player.

Brady beat Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who had held No. 1 for the previous two years.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who announced his retirement, was second on the list – despite beating the Brady Patriots in the AFC Championship game and winning the Super Bowl.
