For all the derision and snark directed at former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o when he was drafted in the second round by the Chargers, here's something interesting: people are most definitely buying his No. 50 jersey. As ESPN reports, the Te'o jersey is the top seller among all NFL rookies from April 1-June 30 on NFLShop.com. Following him in rookie sales are Rams receiver Tavon Austin, Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel, Vikings receiver Cordarrelle Patterson and Packers running back Eddie Lacy. Notably, that top-five list does not include Jets quarterback Geno Smith.
