Michael Sam jersey sales are though the roof. In fact it appears the NFL is surprised by the massive amount of people trying to get their hands on a Sam jersey.
Not bad for a guy who was taken in the seventh round and is not expected to be a starter at any position.
You can buy Sam’s jersey for 99.95. Currently no number has been assigned and the NFL Shop website lists the jersey as shipping in 2-4 weeks after a number is assigned. A picture currently displays the No. 10 simply because he was the Rams tenth pick.

It just goes to show you that a guy with a cause (whether you agree with it or not) will always generate sales. See: Tebow, Collins
