Joe Flacco the lone Raven in NFLPA jersey sales rankings

Only one Ravens star ranked in the top 50 in jersey sales for 2014: quarterback Joe Flacco.

Only one Ravens player made the NFL Players Association's top 50 list for jersey sales for the past fiscal year.

Quarterback Joe Flacco was 36th on the list, released Tuesday by the union, and ranked behind 14 other quarterbacks in the sales rankings.

In last year's list, which accounted for the 2013 season, Flacco was ranked 35th, and former running back Ray Rice was ranked 28th.

That Flacco was the lone Raven actually makes sense, though. Given the plethora of stars on both sides of the ball, plus fans' penchant for owning multiple jerseys, it seems that no Ravens player can get the bump that a city's lone star can. 

This end result is somewhat bizarre, given that Dick's Sporting Goods' own metrics had Flacco as the eighth-highest jersey seller in the NFL for the 2014 season, and ranked fifth among quarterbacks. It appears many of the new Flacco jerseys are coming from there.

Perhaps the highlight of the list was Cincinnati Bengal Devon Still, for whom proceeds of his jersey sales were donated to cancer research in honor of his daughter. Still's jersey came in at No. 46.
