Cleveland Browns' Joe Haden Has Top-Selling Jersey in NFL


Cleveland’s Browns fans had mixed reactions when the team unveiled its new uniform designs for the upcoming season, but owners at Dick’s Sporting Goods Store aren't seeing shades of Brown and Orange: They are seeing green, and a lot of it. 

The stores latest “Jersey Report,” reveals that the best-selling replica in the NFL this offseason belongs to fan-favorite and Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden.

Haden beats out the New York Giant’s Odell Beckham Jr. and Philadelphia’s Demarco Murray, who grabbed the second and third spots, respectively to put the Brown and Orange on top.

Cleveland is the only team with two players snatching spots in the top 10. Fellow Browns' secondary ball-hawk and Cleveland native Donte Whitner claims the last spot on the list.

The report also breaks down the best-selling jerseys by state since Week 22 of the 2014-15 season. Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel takes the top spot in three states: Ohio, Kentucky and Oklahoma. 

The Browns jersey sales are on their way up; hopefully their record this season follows suit.
