New York Jets fans may not have had much to be excited about in 2019, but that didn’t stop them from cheering on their favorite players as three Jets have made the NFL’s Top 50 jersey sales list.
New York Jets fans are some of the most loyal fans on earth. Through thick and thin, through the absolute worst of times, Jets fans are always there sticking by their favorite team even when few other fans would.
For that reason, it’s no surprise to see three Jets players land on this year’s NFLPA list of the Top 50 jersey sales.
Even despite the team’s overwhelming success in 2019, Jets fans still spent their hard-earned money on jerseys and merchandise of their favorite players. And this year, a whopping three names made the list.
Checking in at No. 20, quarterback Sam Darnold sold more merchandise than any Jets player from March 1st to November 30th of 2019. Despite dealing with his own issues this past season, Jets fans are evidently still high on their hopeful franchise quarterback.
Darnold ranked ahead of star players like Julian Edelman, George Kittle, Deshaun Watson, and J.J. Watt while Jets fans might also be happy to hear that he sold more merchandise than the likes of Josh Allen and Daniel Jones.
The next Jets player to make the list was Le’Veon Bell who came in at No. 34, one slot ahead of Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce. Bell’s production tanked in his first season with the Jets but that didn’t stop fans from supporting the talented tailback.

Finally, Jamal Adams made the list just two slots behind Bell at No. 36. Adams put together the best year of his brief career to this point making his second Pro Bowl and being named First-Team All-Pro for the first time in his career.
Once again, only five defensive players ranked ahead of Adams while the 24-year-old was the only defensive back to crack the Top 50. Expect Adams to continue to rise up this list in the coming seasons provided he keeps up the same level of play.
In a rollercoaster of a season full of plenty of ups and downs, Jets fans stuck by their favorite players and never wavered from their sides. And as a result, the Jets were well-represented on this year’s merchandise sales list.
Hopefully the franchise will reward its fanbase next season with a few more wins.
