St. Louis Ram Michael Sam’s jersey has jumped to number two of all NFL rookies in sales. The former Missouri Tiger is the first openly gay football player to be drafted by the NFL.
Buzzfeed reported:

In the less than 48 hours since Michael Sam was drafted to the St. Louis Rams Saturday night, sales of his jersey have already soared to No. 2 out of all of the NFL rookies drafted, OutSports reported.

“This is unprecedented for a Day 3 pick, let alone a seventh round pick, to crack the top five rookies sold following Draft weekend,” NFL spokesperson Joanna Hunter told the publication. In other words, the jersey sales are significant because Sam’s became available 48 hours later than those of the other four players in the top five best-sellers.

As of Monday morning, sales of Sam’s jersey ranked second behind Johnny Manziel of the Cleveland Browns.
