Russell Wilson, Seahawks top NFL player merchandise sales for second straight year

Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman, Marshawn Lynch, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor appear in the Top 50 for NFL player sales.

Seattle signal caller Russell Wilson was the most-popular NFL player in League merchandise sales this past year, according to a list released Monday by NFL Players Inc.

It marks the second straight year the Seahawks quarterback is tops in officially licensed sales. From March 1, 2014 through Feb. 28, 2015, the 26-year-old fourth-year pro had the NFL's most-popular jersey and most-popular Ugly Sweater.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman (No. 7) and running back Marshawn Lynch (No. 9) join Wilson in the top 10, with free safety Earl Thomas (No. 29) and strong safety Kam Chancellor (No. 30) earning spots in the top 50. Sherman's rank is the highest in the NFL among defensive players, while Lynch leads all of the League's running backs. With five players ranked, the Seahawks are the team with the most individual retail power for the second consecutive season.

Rounding out the top 10 with Wilson, Sherman, and Lynch are Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (No. 2), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (No. 3), San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (No. 4), Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (No. 5), Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (No. 6), Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt (No. 8), and Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel (No. 10).

Collectively, NFL Players Inc. licensees generated more than $1.4 billion in sales last year. Check out the Seahawks Pro Shop to get in on the action.
