Tom Brady remains the merch GOAT.

The 44-year-old quarterback of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers led the NFL in player product and merchandise sales for a record fifth time, and second straight year, according to the official ranking by the NFL Players Association that was released on Thursday. 

The top sellers after Brady were Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs and Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills. 

Quarterbacks dominated the top 10, accounting for nine spots, including the seven best sellers. Joe Burrow was fourth thanks in part to a postseason sales boost after leading the Cincinnati Bengals to their first Super Bowl since 1988. New England Patriots rookie Mac Jones made a strong debut in merch sales, finishing fifth. Dak Prescott's return from injury equated to a strong comeback at the registers, as the Dallas Cowboys quarterback was the sixth-best seller. 

The lone non-QB in the top 10 was San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle, whose seventh-place finish was the highest ranking for a tight end on any NFLPA year-end list. 

Another rookie quarterback to crack the top 10 was Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears, who was eighth.

Rounding out the top 10 was Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers and Justin Herbert of the Los Angeles Chargers.

The best selling defensive player was Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt, who made the biggest jump from last season's year-end list, going from No. 36 to No. 12.  

The Cowboys led the way with five players in the top 50, edging the San Francisco 49ers, who had four.
