With as many talented players as the Minnesota Vikings have on their roster, it might come as a bit of a surprise that one of the newest members of the team already has the team’s hottest-selling jersey of the year.
According to data compiled by Dick’s Sporting Goods, quarterback Kirk Cousins has sold the most jerseys of any member of the Vikings since the start of 2018. In fact, Cousins has cracked the Top 20 in jerseys sold this year, checking in at #17.
After Cousins, you have to look pretty far down the list to find another member of the purple on there. You have to go all the way down to #83 to find the next one, which belongs to Stefon Diggs.
Behind them? You have to go outside of the Top 100 to find Harrison Smith at #101, Anthony Barr at #105, and that’s it. The list goes all the way to 114, and there are only four Vikings on it.
To be honest, I’m surprised that there aren’t more members of the Vikings on the list. Instead, there’s no Xavier Rhodes, no Everson Griffen. . .and, most surprisingly of all (at least in my opinion), no Adam Thielen. But, if the Vikings have the sort of season this year that I think most of us are expecting them to, that will likely change.
For the record, former Vikings’ quarterback Case Keenum checks in at #45 with his new threads representing the Denver Broncos. I don’t think I saw any other former Vikings on the list anywhere.
Have you gotten your Kirk Cousins jersey yet?
