Johnny Manziel has yet to play a game with the Cleveland Browns, but the former Texas A&M star quarterback has already scored a touchdown in merchandise sales.

Manziel has the NFL’s best-selling jersey, according to nflshop.com.

ESPN reports this is the first time a Browns player has led jersey sales since the league began keeping track in 2001.

Quarterbacks take the next few slots: Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson has the second best-selling jersey, San Francisco 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick is in third, and Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos in fourth place.

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman and St. Louis Rams rookie defensive end Michael Sam round out the top six.
