Deshaun Watson’s jersey flying off the shelves
Deshaun Watson’s jersey is on fire. It looks like Houston Texans’ fans feel like they have to have the rookie’s jersey after an impressive start to his career.
Not only has Houston Texans’ rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson put up some impressive stats as he leads the entire NFL with 15 touchdown passes, but he’s also leading in an off the field category as well.
According to NFLShop.com, Watson’s jersey is the highest selling rookie jersey from this year’s NFL draft class.
In case you’re wondering, the No.2 best selling jersey goes to the brother of Texans’ star defensive lineman J.J. Watt, Pittsburgh Steelers’ linebacker T.J. Watt. No. 3 is Chicago Bears’ quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. No. 4 is Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt. And rounding out the top-5, is Carolina Panthers’ running back Christian McCaffrey.
Aside from Watson and Trubisky, the only other rookie quarterbacks to have started games this season are Deshone Kizer of the Cleveland Browns and C.J. Beathard of the San Francisco 49ers. I wouldn’t expect their jerseys to reach the top-10.

I wouldn’t expect Watson to lose the No. 1 spot anytime soon with the way he’s been playing. Also, with the Texans having one of the strongest fan bases in the NFL, I believe his jersey will continue to fly off the shelves.
