Tom Brady leads NFL merchandise sales as DeflateGate suspension appeal drags on

Limited Mens Kenny Lofton Jersey New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is currently in a drawn-out battle with the league over his four-game suspension, but that hasn’t done anything to hurt his merchandise sales. In fact, the whole thing may have helped him. Brady led the league in player merchandise sales from March 1 through May 31, according to figures released by the NFL Players Association.

That merchandise doesn’t just include jersey sales. It represents all officially licensed merchandise concerning the player, including figures and more. Brady actually trailed San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in head-to-head jersey sales, and Kaepernick was tops when it came to women’s apparel, but Brady holds the top spot across all forms of swag.

NFL, CFL and Division I players are unavailable for the tournament, so the USA roster consists of recently graduated college players hoping to impress professional coaches with their play in the tournament. The team was coached by former Colorado and Boise State coach Dan Hawkins.

This year’s tournament took place in Canton, Ohio, the first ever rendition of the tournament held in the United States. Japan won the first tournaments in 1999 and 2003, but America hadn’t sent a team to those tournaments. Team USA started sending teams with the 2007 championship, and although Japan took them to double overtime in that year’s gold medal game, the Americans remain undefeated in IFAF play.
