Would you believe that since March 1, Nick Foles is responsible for more NFL gear being sold than Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham Jr.?
In 2018 second-quarter sales, Foles ranks eighth in the NFL among licensed products sold. The other nine guys are either starting quarterbacks or elite skill players.
Here's the list:
1. Tom Brady
2. Dak Prescott
3. Carson Wentz
4. Ezekiel Elliott
5. Aaron Rodgers
6. Saquon Barkley
7. Jimmy Garoppolo
8. Nick Foles
9. Antonio Brown
10. Odell Beckham Jr.
Complete coverage of the Philadelphia Eagles and their NFL rivals from NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Zach Ertz was 18th on the list, three spots below Rob Gronkowski and two below Julio Jones. No other Eagle was among the top 50.
This, yet again, shows the power of Philly sports fans and the power of Foles' own Cinderella story last year.
It's also another example of the Eagles beating down on the Giants. Their backup QB is more popular than the highest-paid receiver in football.
