The Justin Fields era began the second he was drafted after a stunning move by the Bears.
He’s been the talk of the town in the football world from sportscasters to Bears fans on Twitter and he hasn’t even played in his first NFL game.
Now, Fields has the third-highest selling jersey in the NFL, according to a tweet by NFL on FOX.
The first listed is the iconic navy home jersey. Fields’ name also took up the No. 4 and 5 spots with the orange alternate jersey and white away jersey respectively. He is the only top player to be selling all three team jerseys.
Fields has the leading rookie and quarterback jersey in his 2021 draft class, ahead of Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris, Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith and No. 1 overall pick and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Lawrence’s teammate Tim Tebow, who is planning his NFL comeback, has the top two highest selling jerseys.
Since Bears fans will be allowed at Soldier Field starting preseason, there’s no question that the stadium will feature many fans sporting the rookie’s No. 1 jersey.
