PROVEN STAR POWER: In Denver, Jeff Legwold wrote Tebow's "power to pull people to cash registers won't help the Broncos' bottom line more than any other team in the league since the NFL's 32 teams currently divide all merchandise revenue evenly." However, Tebow topping the list does show his "star power is substantial even before he has appeared in a regular-season game" (DENVERPOST.com, 7/7). CNBC's Darren Rovell reported NFLShop.com sells Tebow jerseys in "white, orange and blue, in all sizes, including youth." The league also sells a "wide array of Tebow women's jerseys including 'Zebra Field Flirt' and 'Pink Sweetheart' varieties." Meanwhile, Patriots QB Tom Brady's rank at No. 14 is his "lowest place since at least the 2006 season" (CNBC.com, 7/7).

REDSKINS REVIVAL: In DC, Dan Steinberg noted the Redskins rank No. 6 in team merchandise sales after being the "only NFC East team that didn't appear in the overall top 10 ... for the year from April 1, 2009 through March 31, 2010." Meanwhile, a spokesperson said that Redskins TE Chris Cooley and LB Brian Orakpo "are in the top 100 in player sales" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 7/7).
