Here are the top 10 NFL players by merchandise sales

Tom Brady - Top selling NFL Merchandise

It was a record sales year for the NFL with $1.55 billion in total merchandise sold to die hard fans.

Despite failing to make it to the Super Bowl, nobody had a better year than Tom Brady.

The famed New England Patriots quarterback sold more jersey’s bobbleheads, and other merchandise than every other player.

Brady’s total sales? $20 million.

The list of merchandise sales was compiled by the NFL Players Association and released on Monday.

The NFLPA, the players’ union, keeps about a third of the revenue — some of which goes into a pool for all players. Around two-thirds of the revenue goes to the individual player.

It was somewhat of a comeback story for Tom Brady, who was beat out the last two years by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.

Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who has announced his retirement, was second on the list.

The Seahawks led the top 50 list with six players including Wilson, Richard Sherman and Marshawn Lynch.

Denver Broncos linebacker Vonn Miller also made it into the top 50 for the first time.

Here are the top 10 merchandise selling players in the NFL:

1. Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
2. Peyton Manning, QB, Denver Broncos
3. Russell Wilson, QB, Seattle Seahawks
