The Sports Xchange

Two weeks into the NFL season and after all of the preseason hubbub surrounding “Deflategate,” New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady leads the league in jersey sales.

Brady’s No. 12 remains popular among fans, ranking No. 1 in sales on the NFL website. He also is first in all licensed merchandise sold from March 1 to May 31, the NFL Players Association reported.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is second, followed by New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and San Francisco 49ers running back and kick returner Jarryd Hayne.

Hayne is popular in his native Australia, where he played rugby. Seventy percent of his jersey sales are from Down Under.

Three teams — New England, Seattle and San Francisco — have three jerseys in the top 25.
