For NFL players, everything changes when you win the Super Bowl.
For example, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was a third round draft choice in 2012.
He’s been a solid quarterback, leading his team to 28 wins in two seasons.
And after winning the Super Bowl in February, he is now the NFL’s top player for licensed sales.
People buy more jerseys, T-shirts, photos, bobbleheads, and other stuff with Russell Wilson’s name and likeness on it than any other player.
