    Must be an old list, some of these guys don’t play for these teams anymore like Miles Austin and Leshawn McCoy.

  • AzheDraven

    But Shady wasnt cut or anything if I remember correctly

  • Steve

    Phili let him go – No tellin why.

  • Rosco

    Out of the top 20, troy has been on a team way longer it means alot that prople are still buying his jersey.. my polamalu jersey is atleast 5 yrs old

  • Steve

    When Troy talks people listen. He don’t say much but when he does say something, Troy is usually correct.

  • Chad Currin

    Trent Richardson made this list??? Maybe a lot of people collect jersey of players who play on two teams in one season. Why else would people buy his jersey. There are lots of players who run for 100 yards per year and he is the only one to make the list

  • AzheDraven

    You mean DeSean Jackson?

  • blackandgoldBullion

    Yeah, I love the Troy way: Walk softly, but carry a big stick! I know women with hair similar to his that bought the jerseys because of the Head and Shoulders commercials. They don’t even care about football, except for the Super Bowl parties.

  • pat

    I see LeVeon making this list this yr

  • Steve

    Correct – Sorry for the confusion.
