An NFL spokeswoman told ESPN.com on Monday that Griffin already has sold more jerseys this year than any player in a single season since the league started tracking the numbers six years ago. It's not particularly surprising, but it speaks to Griffin's huge influence.
Griffin's jersey sales are a sure sign we will see plenty of RG3 commercials and everything else over the next decade. There is a healthy debate over his NFL Rookie of the Year candicacy with Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, but there's no doubt who resonates most with the public. Luck is sixth in jersey sales (playing in Indianapolis doesn't help).
