Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco, a Vineland High graduate, was one of the NFL’s most popular players in merchandise sales this offseason.
Pacheco was the starting running back for the Super Bowl-winning Chiefs, scoring a touchdown in the big win against the Philadelphia Eagles.
From March 1 to May 31, Pacheco ranked No. 22 in the league in licensed player merchandise sales, according to the NFL Player’s Association.
Also making the list was Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts at No. 6, center Jason Kelce was No. 16, A.J. Brown at No. 27, and DeVonta Smith at No. 34 on the list.
