Jameis 34th In “Player Sales”

May 3rd, 2017

15th-most popular quarterback

Just because young Jameis Winston is America’s Quarterback, that doesn’t mean stuff with his name or likeness on it is the most popular in the land.

The NFL Players association shared sales data on player merchandise from March 1, 2016 through Feb. 28, 2017.

Jameis ranked 34th overall and 15th among quarterbacks. That placed him one slot higher than Teddy Bridgewater and a notch below Andrew Luck.

Marcus Mariota was at No. 30, wedged between Larry Fitzgerald (No. 29) and Drew Brees (No. 31).

What does this mean? Joe won’t pretend to know. Jameis’ ranking should rise this year, as more fans across the nation get to see him play — and watch his personality on display on Hard Knocks.

No, Joe doesn’t own any Jameis gear. Perhaps that will change 2017. It might be time for Joe to peel the Donald Penn Fathead off the east wall of JoeBucsFan world headquarters.

    lol You’ve got a Donald Penn fathead?

    Jameis does seem to be the most popular jersey for Bucs fans though.

    Saw footage from drat parties and Jameis jersey’s everywhere. At one point they showed an entire family wearing Jameis jersey’s. I thought that was odd, but to each their own I guess.

    Still love my FSU one though. Nothing brings out the dirty looks more than that one for some reason. Still to this day.

  2. The Buc Realist Says:


    That must be one huge wall to hold fat donald up there!!!! you should now be able to put up 3 or 4 Buc players now!!!!!

    And now you know why the Glazers signed up this team for the NFL’s longest commercial called hard knocks to “expand the brand” ! can’t wait till next year to hear everyone say that there is only 1 GOAL!!!! and no distractions!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!

    A friend found a website that sold NFL knockoffs from China. I bought a jameis white jersey. I am walking around (more like strutting) town with my Wife when she asks me “Why is the number three backwards”……….True Story.

    But being the good wife she is bought me an official NFL Winston jersey, Red.

  4. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    Agree with you Realist. Perhaps the most significant thing to emerge from Hard Knocks will be the canonization of #3. People will fall in love with him and his image will be changed forever. It will be the most lasting change produced by the show. #3 will forever be viewed differently after this show.

  5. The Buc Realist Says:


    Is that what you want??? is that what all of you want???? for our QB to be beloved??????

    Or do you want our QB and are TEAM to be hated, because we just ran thru there house, slept with their girl, and ate all their food before we left town!!!!!

    I Don’t Care how we are perceived nationally, I don’t even care how some of the local media see’s this team!!!!!!! I am starting to wonder if their “sources” are people that work in the cafeteria!!!!!!!

    If Head Coach Koetter wants this team to be “badass” We are going to have to push some out of the way!!!!!!

  6. Buc1987 Says:

    STPete….big mofo stick and all.

  7. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I stopped buying player fat heads. I used to have a wall in my house with Freeman, Mike Williams, and Legarrette Blount. That didn’t work out so well, lol.

  8. The Buc Realist Says:

    @Hawaiian Buc

    Sounds like you got the “club” package!!!!!!!

  9. Zwak Says:

    I have many Bucs jerseys that are framed but will never understand a grown man wearing a shirt with another guys name on the back of it! Just seems odd..

  10. The Buc Realist Says:


    you should pitch fathead to make a mark dominik trash can!!!!!!!!!

  11. Fsuking Says:

    I’ve certainly done my part to contribute!

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    Remember Colorforms as a kid?

    Fatheads remind me of giant colorforms.

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    Zwak …come to a game and you’d be blown away.

  14. Mojiska Says:

    I got a white winston jersey and a red alstott. Only wear them on gameday when i go to games. Seeing as i live in cali, i only wear it 1 time a year if im lucky.

  15. lurker Says:

    simply, it means jameis christ is the bucs qb, not america’s.

    tom brady is america’s qb! he is #3 in sales on your list.

  16. Zwak Says:

    If the Bucs want to sell something offer the real battle flag! I have one but it cost me $250 all the others are a flag with a picture of a flag?

  17. Zwak Says:

    I go to all the games my girl rocks the jersey I wear a hat!

  20. NJBucsFan Says:

    It’s the god awful digital clock jerseys. If they looked better, he would be higher on the list. The only jersey I would consider is the color rush one, but to be honest, I’d go with a Kwon Alexander jersey first.

  21. NFLNut Says:

    That’s interesting as I follow sports cards and memorabilia sales and Jameis sells for much higher than Mariota … Hawaii fans are loyal though and they view Marcus as one of their own …

  22. 813bucboi Says:

    but I do agree with you tho regarding the teams image….I would rather us be winners and hated upon just like the pats….minus the cheating…instead on beloved an average…..but hell, if you aint cheating you aint tryin….GO BUCS!!!!

  23. gotbbux Says:

    My 16 year old rocks the Jamies socks!! THOSE are sweet and complement his Jaboo jersey perfectly!!

  24. Mike Johson Says:

    Donald Penn was spotted just last month in Berkeley, CA (just outside of Oakland) wolfing down a plate of burgers. And I do mean a plate. The lady swore she saw at least 4 big burgers on that plate.

  25. Capt.Tim Says:

    Jameis is gonna be really popular after “Hard Knocks”
    And, yeah- I would like our QB to popular.
    He works his butt off, and has done everything right.
    He deserves to be on a some commercials- and get some recognition on the various sports channels.

    All our hopes for sucess, depend on Jameis. He makes it all happen.
    Deserves to get some money, Selling burgers and cell phones

  26. bculaw Says:

    Jameis’ facial expressions in Joe’s pictures remind me of some of the ones the old QB Killa used to make!!!

  27. NFLNut Says:

    Jameis has the respect of NFL players … the media and “casual” fans don’t matter …

  28. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    This buc bias runs SOO deep. They just said on NFL network that they like njoku better than OJ now. WTF? Lol

  29. NFLNut Says:

    ^ OJ is bigger, faster, more experienced, a way, way, way better blocker, a more polished route runner, a better receiver and also a “safer” pick than Njoku … NFL Network is insane if they said that!

    People think Njoku has a bigger upside simply because he’s “younger” but that’s stupid …

  30. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    It was that Matt Milan and the new numbers chick. Smh

  31. Zwak Says:

    How many of you would buy the battle flag if the Bucs offered it?
    Put a poll up joe!

  32. The Buc Realist Says:


    I would buy a Bucs mark dominik or lovie smith trash can if it was offered!!!!!!
    and it should be on the poll!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!

  33. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I have a few flags up here in Wisconsin. And I would LOVE a Loser Lovie trash can. Lol

  34. Zwak Says:

    I fly it on my boat every weekend and get many people asking how to get one!
    Can’t find them anywhere..

  35. Waterboy Says:

    I’m a tough sale on jerseys so I currently only own a Derrick Brooks and Rhode Barber but Winston and Evans might eventually get there if they stay on track.

  36. Mike Evans GOAT Says:

    I have a ME13 and I really want a Winston, but I am holding out hope that we change these gawd awful things back to something respectable. I can’t stand the new ones

  37. GhostofTedford Says:

    Get into the playoffs, win some games and the jerseys will sell.

  38. Drew Says:

    Joe – before you purchase any Jameis gear you’ll need to either auction or give all of your not to be named QB gear to the Goodwill.

  39. Dewey Selmon Says:

    I go orange #58 it reads.. D. SELMON gets alot of compliments and strange looks from non Bucs fans.

  40. Eric Denman Says:

    As soon as he was drafted I bought one and wear it every Sunday.

  41. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    I got mine at the draft party at the Stadium last one on the rack couldn’t believe it was #3!!!! Great night !!!! Still can’t stand the #s

  42. Buccaneer scotty Says:

    Joe you should set up a protest of the alarm clock #s and send the results to the owners!!!!

  43. Blake_bucsfan Says:

    With the reports of Jameis working harder than ever before on perfecting his craft, and the massive influx of offensive talent through the draft & free agency, I envision Jameis having a truly special season.

    And I’m not talking 9-7 special either…

    Jameis’ nationally popularity is virtually guaranteed to sky rocket once people see what a good guy he is behind closed doors. They’ll see the guy that lights up a room, and they’ll see the superb leader of men that makes his guys want to run through a wall.

    2017 will forever be remembered as the year America’s Quarterback arrived.

    Go Bucs! Jameis is gonna rule the Nfc South until the cows freeze over!

  44. Blake_bucsfan Says:


  45. Tampa Tony Says:

    I can’t get into having another dudes name in my back. But if I did get a jersey it’d be Jameis.

    Just shows how far down the Bucs are down on the national scene

  46. SB Says:

    I have a Leroy Selmon, James Wilder, Batman Woods, Alstott, Lynch, Barber, and Brooks jerseys. All in different sizes seeing as I became a Bucs fan in 76 when I was 9. I also have an Evans Jersey from this era.

  47. Buc50 Says:

    Jameis is far down the list because of the hit-job done by ESPN and other news media. They would rather put out an inaccurate controversial piece than put out the truth.

  48. Dan Solaz Says:

    As a Bucs fan I own several jerseys..#3 is one of them. I plan on getting a Kwon jersey before season kicls off. I dont understand people saying they wont wear jersey with someone elses name on back?? But i guess to each his own.. Imo its is supporting your team and wearing a jersey of one of your favorite players. I played college football as well and still don’t feel weird wearing another persons name on back of my jersey..just weird to think that bothers some people.

  49. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I wonder if Hard Knocks will raise him higher up in the sales.

  50. Stpetebucsfan Says:

    The National Media is already lining up….Hard Knocks will just close the show.

    We are getting get pub right now. One “expert” had us up to 9th now in the power rankings…ahead of both Carolina and N.O.

    Another was going on about how tough the NFC South has become.

    I do not remember this much excitement before a Bucs season since the old SB team.

  51. LargoBuc Says:

    Say hypothetically that Mike Evans was drafted by the Giants and Odell Beckham was drafted by the Bucs. Then we all know whos jersey would be a bigger sell. And if Odell were a Buc he wouldnt get the benefit of the doubt. He would simply be labeled a distraction. And he certainly wouldnt be hooking up with a Kardashian if he wore red and pewter. Thats my big market media rant of the day 😀

  52. Lamarcus Says:

    34th? Meh. He is number 1 in my household. His jersey is the only I choose to ever invest in besides Mike alstott. Jameis is one the best in the league. Nfl players say so. I have eyes and it said so. It’s young but this is only the beginning. MIles ahead of Mariota. Oh btw Joe why keep the Martin subject and let’s hear some stuff about Mariota?

  53. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Stpetebucsfan Says
    “I do not remember this much excitement before a Bucs season since the old SB team.”

    Amen to that! I’m loving it!

  54. LargoBuc Says:

    Mariota’s good but Jameis has guts. You can’t coach that.

  55. Buc1987 Says:

    Smiles all around.

    Thank you Jameis. Our fortunes may have changed.

    Thanks Lovie. You sucked so bad we landed this kid.

    It was like the perfect storm. It’s not just getting the first pick. The right QB had to be there and to me that’s rare.

    Smiles around. Go Bucs!!!

  56. Pickgrin Says:

    Jameis jerseys would probably be top 10 for QBs even without the notoriety if our uniforms weren’t so god awful UGLY.

    Seriously Glazers – fix the uniform mess you created. What the hell were you thinking with this crap design??? I won’t buy a single new jersey unless/until these clown outfits are changed to something better and more attractive.

  57. USFBUC Says:

    Just want them to change the numbers to something pirate themed, and go with jerseys that are solid red like the color rush with some Cream-sickle accents. Also shrink down the logos on the helmet just a little, it looks funny to me that the logo wraps around to the front.

  58. Atlbuc28 Says:

    You know what…. The fact that Jameis doesn’t give 2 &^%$! about his jersey sales….. is just another reason to be thankful …..

  59. captjimbo Says:

    Win some playoff games and it will take care of itself. Unless you’re a Bucs fan what has he done to deserve the accolades of fans around the country. Just trying to be objective as I’m a huge Bucs fan and am hoping JW can take us to the promised land.

  60. Mtbucsfan Says:

    Wear my Evens jersey around Montana with pride. Bought my mom a Winston jersey for her birthday last year. She wears it everywhere. Dad still rocks Ruud lol. My wife is a broncos fan. So there’s that lol

  61. MO_bucs Says:

    Lost my k. johnson and d. brooks jersey’s in a house fire… love my color rush winston jersey… am I the only one that thinks a pewter jersey with red and/or orange accents would be sweet?!?

    Exactly! The Bucs uniforms are an eyesore. The Super Bowl XXXVII era uniforms were fantastic, I still can’t understand why the Glazers allowed Nike to redesign them – or how this design was selected.

    Joe has no Jameis gear?! What about the tattoo on the right buttcheek huh? xD
