The new Minnesota Vikings quarterback already has one of the NFL’s top-selling jerseys according to DICK’S Sporting Goods.

As is the case whenever a team acquires a new player, fans of the Minnesota Vikings have already been making a bunch of purchases to support the team’s newest quarterback, Kirk Cousins.

Cousins has barely been a member of the Vikings for three months and his jersey is already the team’s top-seller this year according to DICK’S Sporting Goods. Combining the fact that he was Minnesota’s prized acquisition this offseason with him also being a quarterback makes the numbers provided DICK’S not too hard to believe.

A little farther down on the list is former Vikings signal caller Case Keenum. Now with the Denver Broncos, Keenum currently has the NFL’s 45th-best selling jersey.

After Cousins, it takes quite awhile before another Minnesota player appears on the list. Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs has the team’s second-best selling jersey so far this year, but just the 83rd-best selling jersey in the entire league.

Minnesota safety Harrison Smith (101st) and linebacker Anthony Barr (105th) round out the team’s top four best-selling jerseys of 2018.

It’s a little surprising that Diggs’ jersey is only 83rd on the list considering how many more people around the country became a fan of his after the Minneapolis Miracle. But the young receiver still has plenty of time to make a name for himself outside of Minnesota.

Cousins’ ranking on the list just goes to show how excited Vikings fans truly are about the team’s new quarterback.

Even if some claim to be unhappy with Minnesota giving Cousins a gigantic amount of money, the amount of jerseys he has sold clearly says that the majority approve of the Vikings adding the signal caller to their roster this year.
