Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys jerseys top sales report

Local News
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is the new king of pro football retail, claiming the No. 1 spot on the NFLPA’s Top 50 Player Sales List for the NFLPA’s first quarter.

It is the first time since the NFLPA began compiling its Top 50 Player list in 2013 that a non-quarterback has topped the quarterly player sales rankings. The list is based on total sales of all officially-licensed NFL player merchandise, tracking year-to-date results from March 1 through May 31, 2016. 
Bryant, who placed at No. 5 on the season-ending 2015 list, was joined by three other Cowboys teammates – quarterback Tony Romo, rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott and tight end Jason Witten in the top five. The only non-Cowboys player in the top five was Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who remained in the fourth spot. Russell Wilson, the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks, placed sixth. New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, the top-ranked player at the end of 2015, checked in at No. 7 and was joined by his teammate, tight end Rob Gronkowski in the No. 10 spot. New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. ranked No. 8, followed by rookie quarterback Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles at No. 9.
Cowboys and Seahawks players were represented most frequently on the list, with five players each. The Packers were next with four players, while the Patriots, Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders each had three players. 
Quarterbacks led the list once again, with 17 finding places among the top 50. The position with the next-most representation was wide receivers with 11, while seven linebackers earned spots on the list. A total of 38 offensive players were ranked, to 12 defensive players.
