Peterson jersey among best-sellers in NFL


After taking home MVP honors for his incredible 2012-13 season, it's no surprise that Adrian Peterson's jersey is one of the best-selling jersey's in the NFL.

Peterson's No. 28 jersey ranks fourth among NFL stars, according to CNBC.

The highest-paid running back in the league ($13.7 million annually) earned every penny in 2012 by rushing for 2,097 yards (only 9 short of league record held by Eric Dickerson) and winning the NFL MVP award, a piece of hardware usually reserved for QBs.

But what really captured the imagination of fans is the way Peterson did it all on a reconstructed knee. The player nicknamed "All Day" won "Comeback Player of the Year" award for his courageous return from injury in 2011.

Peterson's jersey was the 23rd best selling jersey last season.

The top three jerseys on the list belong to Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson and Robert Griffin III -- all of whom were rookies last season.
