Kudos are in order. Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz finds his way on the NFL Players Association’s top-50 player sales list for the 2018-19 NFL league year.
Most of us will never know what it’s like to play quarterback in the NFL. Hey, there are only 32 starting quarterbacks on Planet Earth, but from the outside looking in, it seems like a pretty cool gig. Despite seeing his last two seasons end with him on his team’s IR (injured reserve), Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz appears to be in no danger of seeing his star burning any less brightly.
The NFL Players Association released its’ top-50 player sales list for the 2018-19 league year recently, and for the second year in a row, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady topped said list. On a side note, Brady is entering his 20th season in 2019 and will turn 42 on August 3rd.
It’s hard to imagine that anyone who wants a Tom Brady jersey doesn’t already have one, but be that as it may, he’s found his way into the top slot once again. It’s cool. He’s used to that.
Here’s the entire list:
1. Tom Brady, QB, New England Patriots
2. Dak Prescott, QB, Dallas Cowboys
3. Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles
4. Ezekiel Elliott, RB, Dallas Cowboys
For anyone keeping score, that’s six quarterbacks in the top ten. It must be nice to be able to walk in a room and be completely recognizable when you play a sport that requires you to wear a helmet (one that also sports a face mask).
Wentz enters the 2019 regular season with him being firmly entrenched in the role of Eagles starting quarterback and with, arguably, one of the best offensive units he’s ever been surrounded with. Expect to see a ton of ’11’ jerseys around Lincoln Financial Field this season. Then again, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say you’ll see quite a few when the Eagles are on the road as well.
