Murray was one of the league’s biggest risers at 36 spots from last year. No other Cardinals players cracked the NFL’s top 50 in sales.
The sixth-year quarterback, Mahomes, Justin Jefferson, Rodgers and Justin Fields made up the top five in youth apparel sales.
The Cardinals unveiled a new set of uniforms in April after years of fans clamoring for a refresh. The last time Arizona overhauled its look was in 2005.
Murray will don the new red, white and black jerseys this upcoming season after his return from a torn ACL. He nor the team has put a specific timeline on his return to game action after he suffered the injury in Week 14.
