For most of the NFL season, Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow had the highest-selling jersey in the league. But when all was said, done and calculated, Tebow finished with the third highest-selling jersey in 2010. CNBC's Darren Rovell reports that Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu finished the season at No. 1, the first time since 2006 (Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher).â†µ
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees finished second, and Polamalu and Philadelphia Eagles' receiver DeSean Jackson were the only non-QBs to appear in the top 12.â†µ
The remarkable thing about Tebow is that he played in only seven games, starting the final three. Tebow's popularity carried over from his college career with the Flordia Gators. However, that popularity was not enough in the final round of jersey sales for the rookie to come out on top. Third-place is still a great finish for the rising star in Denver.â†µ
How well will he do in 2011?
