Carson Wentz already looks like he'll be a staple amongst the NFL's top jersey sales.
After finishing third last year in overall jerseys sold, Wentz's jersey currently sits sixth in fan purchases over the past month according to DICK's Sporting Goods. Needless to say, he's on the list for good reason. Last season, the rookie quarterback set the all-time NFL rookie record for completed passes with 379 and finished fourth all time amongst rookies with 3,782 passing yards.
Frankly, it's hard not being a fan of Wentz as he stays heavily active in the community. He recently launched the Carson Wentz AO1 (Audience of One) Foundation to provide "opportunities and support for the less fortunate and those in need." Back in May, Wentz and fellow teammate Jordan Mathews ventured to Haiti to assist families living in deteriorating conditions.
Head coach Doug Pederson spoke admiringly of Wentz to reporters stating, "He's got one of those infectious personalities that people kind of gravitate to because of his work ethic. That's what we've seen in the spring with him."
Currently, Wentz's jersey ranks as the third-highest selling among NFL quarterbacks, trailing only New England's Tom Brady and Dallas' Dak Prescott. If the former rookie standout can have an impressive sophomore showing, Eagles fans might find No. 11 climbing the jersey charts while the team reaps the benefits in the win column.
