Tom Brady isn’t just dominant on the field. He’s a force to be reckoned with on the merchandise stand as well.

This week, NFLShop released its 25 best-selling jerseys from April 1, 2016 until the end of February. For the second consecutive year, Brady was at the top of the list. He’s followed by Cowboys rookies Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott.

The other two Patriots players on the list, Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman, clock in at No. 5 and No. 15, respectively. The Cowboys, who had four players make the cut, are the only team with more representation than New England.
