Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is in the Top 10 for most merchandise sold among all NFL players in the latest report
The news around the Chicago Bears this season has been centered with quarterback Justin Fields as he enters his second season in the NFL. The goal for the Bears is to build their offense around the former Ohio State quarterback and help him take that next step.
While general manager Ryan Poles drafted just one wide receiver in the 2022 NFL draft, the team still believes in the quarterback as the future of the franchise. And the fans apparently do too.
Fields is among the best-selling players in terms of merchandise in the NFL per the latest numbers put out by the NFLPA. The quarterback ranks 8th among all players and 7th among all quarterbacks in the league, even beating out rival quarterback Aaron Rodgers in the process:

That’s pretty impressive for being in the year for one season and that season being one in which Fields sort of struggled, although it’s not all his fault. The big market of Chicago does help and it shows that fans haven’t given up on him either.
If Fields does that that next step and the Bears are better in 2022, he will almost certainly shoot up those rankings and should find himself in the Top 5.
The Bears will begin their OTA’s in May, which gives us our first look at the quarterback in the team’s new offense under Matt Eberflus and Luke Getsy. Only time will tell if there’s an improvement or not in Fields’ game.
