Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel's jersey is the NFL's top seller.

Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel's jersey is the NFL's top seller. 

ESPN's Darren Rovell reported on July 21 that Manziel's No. 2 jersey outsold all the others during the first quarter of the fiscal year on NFLShop.com: 

"The NFL announced on Monday that more Johnny Manziel No. 2 Cleveland Browns jerseys were sold on NFLShop.com during the first quarter of the league's fiscal year than any other player's jersey.

"Manziel topped Super Bowl-winning Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (No. 2), San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick (No. 3) and Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning (No. 4). 

"Only two jerseys of defensive players were in the top 10. The jerseys of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and St. Louis Rams defensive end Michael Sam, the first openly gay man drafted, were fifth and sixth, respectively.

"Aside from those of Wilson and Sherman, three other Seahawks jerseys finished in the top 25, the most of any team. The '12th Fan' jersey finished 10th, running back Marshawn Lynch's was 11th and safety Earl Thomas's was 20th on the list. 

"Notable rookies to crack the list besides Manziel and Sam included Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater (No. 13), Houston Texans defensive end and top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney (No. 16) and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles (No. 18). 

"The best-selling teams are, not surprisingly, the Super Bowl champion Seahawks and the team they played in the NFC Championship Game, the 49ers. Thanks to Manziel, the Browns are now the third-most popular team in the league from a merchandise standpoint. 

"Since the league started keeping track in 1979, the Browns have finished the season at a franchise-best No. 3 in merchandise sales only once. That was in 1999, when the team came back into the league as an expansion franchise. 

"Manziel's spot atop the jersey-sales list is the highest a Browns player has been since the league has kept track of individual players' sales (2001). In 2007, Browns quarterback Brady Quinn went into the season with the No. 2 best-selling jersey behind San Diego Chargers running back LaDanian Tomlinson. Quinn finished the season at No. 17 in jersey sales." 

In another team development, Browns head coach Mike Pettine told The Northeast Ohio Media Group's Mary Kay Cabot on July 22 that the competition for the starting spot between Manziel and Brian Hoyer is up for grabs: 

"Browns coach Mike Pettine emphasized that the quarterback competition between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel is wide open, and that he'd like to name his starter by the third preseason game Aug. 23. 

"Hoyer and Manziel will report to training camp Wednesday along with the rest of the quarterbacks, rookies and players coming off injuries. The remaining veterans will report Friday and begin practicing Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 12:10, the first session open to the public. 

"'I don't know if I'm going to set a hard date for it, but we'll have kind of a sense of when,' Pettine told cleveland.com Monday. 'I plan to name the starter before the third preseason game. We might know very quickly or we might take some time.'

"If Pettine names a man before that third exhibition contest -- at home against the (St. Louis) Rams at 8 p.m. -- Hoyer and Manziel will have had 15 practices and two preseason games to stake their claim to the job.

"The problem is, they won't have played yet in the 'dress rehearsal' game, the third exhibition contest in which most of the starters play through the third quarter. If he names his starter before then, Hoyer and Manziel will have potentially split only about three quality quarters of game action -- one in the exhibition opener at Detroit Aug. 9 and two in the second preseason game in Washington Aug. 18.

"'The starters might play a little longer than maybe you're used to in the preseason,' Pettine said. 'Those are decisions we haven't made yet and there's a lot of different ways to do it. We definitely want to give them both a chance to work with the same supporting cast.'

 

"Despite the fact that Hoyer will open camp No. 1 on the depth chart, Pettine will give Manziel a fair shot to win the job and vowed it won't be rigged to enable one of them to look better."
