One of the aspects that always keeps NFL team merchandise sales moving is that players switch teams so frequently these days. Off the field drama, salary caps, free agency, trades and more all lead to an increase in player movement and therefore a changing scene for authentic NFL jerseys. Here are some of the players you may want to keep an eye on this year.
Probably the biggest name that is likely to be on the move this year is Julius Peppers. He wants a long-term deal with the Carolina Panthers, but both sides seem to think that it has no chance of happening. Therefore, Panthers fans will need new discount NFL apparel for another player, and wherever Peppers lands, fans there will be loading up on his jersey.
Another big name on the move is going to be LaDainian Tomlinson. It’s hard to believe the huge drop off in production that the Hall of Fame running back has had over the past two to three years. Fans in San Diego still love him, as showcased by his authentic NFL jerseys everywhere, but the team will not be willing to pay him a big salary for just a modest role on the team. That means some lucky fans in another city will be stocking up on new NFL team merchandise with his name on it.
Terrell Owens is another Hall of Fame bound player that will be on the move during this off-season. There’s a chance he stays with the Bills and nobody needs to change out their collection of discount NFL apparel. However, he could go any number of different places such as the Cincinnati Bengals.
Quarterback Donovan McNabb is rumored to be on his way out of Philadelphia. This is surprising, because his authentic NFL jerseys are some of the league’s best sellers. But the Eagles may want to move in a new direction, which means a lot of old Eagles NFL team merchandise will be showcasing the wrong player. Of course, another Eagles quarterback, Michael Vick, will also likely be on the move.
These are just a few of the big names that are likely to be switching teams before next season starts. It all means that lots of new authentic NFL jerseys will need to be purchased, and NFL team merchandise sales will continue at a very rapid pace. Be on the lookout for these names and others next time you’re shopping for discount NFL apparel.
