The Raiders’ inaugural season in Las Vegas proved to be fruitful for two of the team’s key players.
Second-year running back Josh Jacobs and star quarterback Derek Carr officially licensed merchandise made it to the top 50 best-selling NFL players, according to a list released Tuesday by the NFL Players Association.
Jacobs narrowly missed being in the top 10, coming in at No. 11, with Carr lower on the list at No. 44. The list represented sales between March 1, 2020 and February 28 of this year.
Both players made jumps from their spots reported by the NFL last year. Jacobs has moved up 22 spots from his 33rd ranking on the 2020 list. Carr jumped from No.49.
The merchandise ranged from jerseys, t-shirts, action figures and action figures to digital and unconventional categories such as pet products.
Player gear could be found on multiple websites online and locally at various outlets including The Raider Image and big box retailers such as Target.
The roster was dominated by reigning Super Bowl MVP Tom Brady, followed by Chiefs QB star Patrick Mahomes, former Ravens MVP Lamar Jackson and Dolphins rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa. Aaron Rodgers of the Packers, the 2020 NFL MVP, completed the top five.
