Two Cleveland Browns players are doing well when it comes to jersey sales in the past month, according to a recent report from Dick’s Sporting Goods.

FirstEnergy Stadium will be filled with fans donning Cleveland Browns jerseys this fall, although a good amount of those jerseys will feature names of players from the past. It’s a tradition, so don’t hate.

But while the Joshua Cribbs and Tim Couch jerseys will be spotted, there will still be plenty of jerseys featuring names of current Browns players.

That was why it was odd when a recent tweet showed the best-selling jersey in the state of Ohio.

I have personally never seen anyone in Ohio wear a Greg Olsen jersey, but perhaps there is someone hoarding his jerseys in the hopes the demand rises very soon.

Regardless, that map is just from sales, which doesn’t include those who buy jerseys in retail stores or at team shops.

Dick’s Sporting Goods also put out a report of best-selling jerseys in its stores, and the Browns made more than one appearance on the list.

Over the last 30 days, Myles Garrett has the No. 25 overall best-selling jersey, while Joe Haden comes in at No. 21. That annual Haden fever is building as some are still clinging to the hope that the former star can return to his old ways.

In addition to coming in at No. 25 overall, Garrett also has the No. 2 best-selling jersey for rookies in the last 30 days, right behind James Conner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Conner is actually third in the nation over the last 30 days, just behind Dak Prescott and Tom Brady.

It is interesting to see that Joe Thomas doesn’t make this list, as he is one of the best players in team history, but left tackle is not the flashiest of positions. However, rocking a Thomas jersey is still quite respectable.

Garrett’s jersey sales should continue to climb as he will hopefully be a mainstay in the city for the next decade, while Haden’s may fall with declining performance.
