Jets fans show major support for their new QB

The four-time MVP is benefiting from the New York Jets fan base's revival following the Aaron Rodgers deal this summer.

New York City's 8 million residents gave Rodgers a market he didn't have with the Packers.

Rodgers' No. 8 Jets jersey was the NFL's top seller in April. Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes, who were second and third, respectively, lost to him

Josh Allen and Odell Beckham Jr. rounded out NFL work uniform sales. Last month, Jordan Love, Rodgers' replacement in Green Bay, sold the seventh-most jerseys. 

As Love took over, Rodgers wanted to leave the Packers. He selected the Jets because he felt they could win a Super Bowl.

For the 38-year-old athlete nearing retirement, the transfer to a large market will be profitable. Rodgers can boost his item sales in the nation's biggest metropolis.

After the Packers won the Super Bowl in 2011, Rodgers' shirt sales skyrocketed, but the Packers fans hadn't been as supportive since.

Rodgers didn't make the top 10 in jersey sales last season. Of course, many fans preserve their jerseys for many seasons, but nonetheless, not in the top 10 Green Bay?

In February, Justin Fields jerseys sold best in Wisconsin.
