Tebow leads NFL jersey sales, Roethlisberger drops off list

Shutdown Corner

Even though his new No. 15 was on sale for just eight days in the month of April, Tim Tebow(notes) had the best-selling jersey of all players in the NFL last month.

Tebow placed No. 1 on the April sales tally released by, just ahead of newly-traded Donovan McNabb(notes), and Super Bowl quarterbacks Drew Brees(notes) and Peyton Manning(notes).

Meanwhile, the popularity of Ben Roethlisberger(notes) continued its freefall as the once-revered Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback dropped out of the top 20 following his involvement in an alleged assault in Georgia.

The NFL's tally takes into account all jerseys sold, whether they be men's, women's, children's, toddler's or those ridiculous-looking pink ones. I'm curious if Tebow leads in all metrics or whether his sales are mostly amongst women and children (which would theoretically mean mother buying jerseys for their kids). Of course, I'm also confused about why any self-respecting Redskins fan would immediately go buy a Donovan McNabb jersey, who is forking over $80 to rock Miles Austin's(notes) No. 19 and why anyone, anywhere would ever willingly wear something with "SHOCKEY" written across the back.

The top 20 (courtesy of CNBC's Darren Rovell) is below. If you're scoring at home there are 12 quarterbacks, three defenders, two running backs, two wide receivers and one tight end on the list. Four of the top 20 are rookies:

1. Tim Tebow

2. Donovan McNabb

3. Drew Brees

4. Peyton Manning

5. Brett Favre(notes)

6. LaDainian Tomlinson(notes)

7. Tony Romo(notes)

8. Ndamakong Suh

9. Sam Bradford(notes)

10. Troy Polamalu(notes)

11. Mark Sanchez(notes)

12. Kevin Kolb(notes)

13. Eli Manning(notes)

14. Reggie Bush(notes)

15. DeSean Jackson(notes)

16. Tom Brady(notes)

17. Miles Austin

18. Eric Berry(notes)

19. Aaron Rodgers(notes)

20. Jeremy Shockey(notes)
