Luke Kuechly is not only getting it done on the football field, he’s also getting things done with his jersey sales as well.

The Carolina Panthers are heading off to Super Bowl 50 where they will take on the Denver Broncos, as they look to complete one of the best overall seasons in NFL history. Of course, this team has gotten to this point because there really is no shortage of stars, and one of those stars in middle linebacker Luke Kuechly.
For the past few seasons Kuechly has been one of the most dominant forces on the defensive side of the ball in all of the NFL, and the last two weeks have proven that. In both wins over the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals, he showed that he can be more than just a ferocious tackler, as he returned an interception for a touchdown in each of those games.
Well, the fame that Kuechly has started to accrue for himself is really starting to pay off, and you can tell this when you look at his jersey sales.
According to the DICK’S Sporting Goods Jersey Report, which reflects sales both nationwide and online, Kuechly is the No. 2 overall jersey in the NFL. The only person that’s in front of him at the moment is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, which is nothing to be ashamed about whatsoever. He’s even in front of Rob Gronkowski, which really is an accomplishment all by itself.
Heck, to make things even better, he can walk into his own locker room and gloat to the most famous member of the Panthers team, Cam Newton, that his jersey is outselling his. Now there’s something to really think about.
If Kuechly puts out another outstanding individual performance in the Super Bowl against the Broncos, it will be interesting to see if maybe he can even eclipse Brady at some point.
