Three New Orleans Saints rank in top-50 of 2019 NFL jersey sales
A popular team with superstar players, the New Orleans Saints had three of their guys rank in the top 50 of NFL player sales for 2019.
The New Orleans Saints were 13-3 last season. A few things come with sustained success, something the team had since in recent years.
For starters, success usually means that the team has a few star players.
Well, for the New Orleans Saints, they have three clear household names. Drew Brees, who set the NFL’s career touchdown record and has led the league in completion percentage for three straight seasons is one.
Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas, the team’s three-time Pro Bowl running back and superstar, record-breaking wide receiver, are also among the most popular names on the Saints. Within the city, not necessarily nationwide, Cam Jordan is a widely-known name as well.
That said, Thomas, Kamara and Brees were the only three to show up on the NFL’s recently-released top-50 player sales. This is huge as the Saints continue to be the best team in the NFC South.
Having been ranked 1-50, the three Saints come in at 38, 18, and 13 respectively. The top-overall player is Patrick Mahomes. Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson, Ezekiel Elliott, and Baker Mayfield round out the top five in respective order.
Not necessarily a huge market, the Saints being able to promote stars and see their sales skyrocket is positive for the team.
While they didn’t quite have a player in the top ten, expect Michael Thomas to make a huge jump this coming season as he is just coming off a record-breaking season. Thomas was fourth on the receiving list behind Odell Beckham Jr., JuJu Smith-Schuster, and Amari Cooper.
Moving forward, the Saints three stars should only be rising, but we’ll see as the NFL will soon be emersed with several high-profile players including quarterback Joe Burrow.
